J6

Seamless Switcher

The J6 is a NovaStar high-performance seamless switcher that integrates video processing, screen mosaic, transition effects and multi-screen display capabilities. The J6 offers powerful video signal receiving and processing abilities, and supports up to 8 inputs with the resolutions up to 4K×2K@30Hz and 6 windows. Besides, this product supports two system modes: Splicer and Switcher. When it is in Splicer mode, a maximum of 4 DVI output connectors can be used together for output, which can realize an up to 8KK loading capacity of each J6 unit. When it is in Switcher mode, a maximum of 2 DVI output connectors can be used together for output, which can realize an up to 4KK loading capacity of each J6 unit.

Based on powerful FPGA platform, the J6 supports input and output EDID management and color adjustment, seamless transition of a variety of input sources, as well as fade and other transition effects, bringing you a more flexible and rich visual experience.

What’s more, the J6 is equipped with NovaStar V-Can smart control software and C1 event controller, allowing for a rich screen mosaic effect via V-Can, C1 or front panel operations. With excellent image quality, ultra-large loading capacity and flexible operation modes, the J6 can be widely used in conference reports, exhibition centers, stage control and other application scenarios.
