The Barco S3 switcher can do a multitude of resolutions up to 4K. It has a customisable Multiview Output which is sent to a 17” Black Magic Design screen showing whatever you set it up too, usually this will be all the inputs available and all the program outputs you have running.

The rack includes a custom panel matching the design on all our other video racks. It allows for power in and out of the rack including the redundant PSU in the S3, and data from the built-in switch inside.
