GV Kula Production Switcher

Comments off




Kula is the most powerful compact production switcher in its class, with a revolutionary design for the live production market. As an entry-level production switcher, Kula packs into a 2 RU chassis the features of a much larger switcher, while maintaining a price tag that is accessible for in-house production, sports, house of worship, entertainment and conference/live events. Available as either 1 M/E, 2 M/E or 3 M/E SD/HD/3G, 1 M/E 4K UHD and dedicated 1 M/E 12G-SDI or IP versions, Kula offers market-leading features and functions. The 2 M/E version and 3 M/E version can be switched to 1 M/E 4K UHD mode, offering a simple path forward to higher production values.

For an all-in-one multiformat system that allows a single operator to have everything they need at their fingertips for mixing video and digital or analog audio and has built-in multiviewer capability see the Kula AV.

Because it is both highly-featured and cost-effective, Kula opens up a new range of professional quality content creation options for customers who are required to work with small spaces and small budgets.
