N9

Seamless Switcher

The N9 is a high-performance seamless switcher that integrates video processing, screen mosaic, transition effects and multi-screen display capabilities. With powerful video signal receiving and processing abilities, the N9 supports up to 4K×2K@60Hz video input. Using high-performance video processing technologies, it is capable of processing and outputting ultra-high quality images. The N9 supports 9 video inputs, 7 layers and up to 4 group of DVI connectors for mosaic output. A single N9 unit can load an up to 8KK screen, and multiple N9 units can be cascaded for output.

The N9 can work with NovaStar’s C1 event controller and brand-new V-Can smart control software, to realize richer screen mosaic effects and easier operation.

Thanks to the powerful capabilities of receiving and processing a variety of video signals, the N9 can be widely used in various scenarios, such as intermediate and high-end rental, stage control, media centers, big conference sites, exhibition sites and concert control centers.
