Performance venues will benefit greatly from the built-in auto mixing function. The auto-mixing function automatically balances incoming audio sources such as microphones from a discussion panel, making it easy for the operator. The XS-62S’s audio processing also includes advanced effects such as EQ, dynamics and delay for mixing of vocal speech along with music and other audio embedded in video sources. These effects will provide improved sound quality for streaming applications, recording and sound reinforcement.

With the XS-62S this can easily be operated by a small team or even a single person. PTZ camera control eliminates the need for individual camera operators, since everything can be controlled from the XS-62S while video is being switched by the same operator. The XS-62S’s audio capabilities make it easy to connect 4 microphones, mixing audio from computers and other video sources.
*In order to do Live streaming with the XS-62S, will need to add an encoder device with an SDI or HDMI input, from a 3rd. party supplier.

PGM / PST Mode also has an available AUX bus making it possible to output different video from the PGM bus and PST bus to an additional destination screen.
Video switching and composition with cross dissolve to the PGM bus are possible in Dissolve Mode. Disolve Mode is easily operated from the front panel and is suitable for a system where the user directly operates the main unit in a meeting space or event.
The AUX bus is also available in Dissolve Mode, making it possible to output different video from the PGM bus and PST bus.
* PST bus output is the same as PGM bus output.
Individual video input signals can be output to three different destinations on three buses. This mode is effective for routing signals and is ideal for events and using multiple screens. Switching the video is with black flame.
In addition to traditional Square or Rectangle shapes, the PinP function can select Circle, Heart or Diamond shapes. Cropping of PinP and adjusting of SPLIT centre portion (Ver.2.0) are suitable for composition of vertically long screen of smart phone. With the DSK function, you can overlay titles, lyrics, logos etc on top of composited video. Both luminance key (black / white) and chroma key (blue / green) functions are available.
XS-62S can preview all six video inputs and two still images, PGM and PVW to a single preview monitor via the Multi-view output. In addition, you can display the menu on the Multi-view display, so you make setting changes without changing your focus from the preview display. From Ver.2.0, exchanging PGM and PVW window and editing label name of IN1 to 6 are possible.

A priority weighting assignment that is channel specific can be set giving the moderator or priority audio channel a higher volume level while using the Auto-Mixing function allowing the operator to focus on video switching and production.
Discrete Multi-channel Audio Embedding
Assign up to eight analog audio inputs a separate audio embed channel on SDI 1 and 2 outputs to ensure a separate mix pre-effect (dry) or post effect (wet) for correcting audio problems post live event. This feature is additionally useful for multi-language events to record the voice-over or language translation on its own audio channel its own audio channel to a separate master.
