Kula has been designed for the likes of Houses of Worship, regional news, sports, events, conferences and education. It is the perfect solution for each environment offering a huge range of features. Kula maybe a compact production switcher but it packs a huge punch.
Kula offers the most powerful M/E in the market. Each M/E has four keyers with resize engines including split dual tile mode offering 8 key layers, plus a dedicated animated clip transition called a MAV Trans and an A/B background.
Kula offers additional M/Es to the standard M/E functionality. With 2 keys that can be assigned to a 2.5D DVE resize engine offering an extra 3 key layers plus an A/B background for creative productions without burning M/E resources.
Four floating DSKs are available within Kula. They can be independently assigned to any output or used downstream of any M/E. They too have resize engines so could essentially make eight key layers.
Kula can output multiple standards simultaneously using Kahuna technology FormatFusion 3, opening up more functionality and delivery of HD, SD, 1080p and 4K.
Kula’s internal mulitviewer offers flexibility with eight heads and 28 tiles to build preview windows to prepare for professional live productions.
The Kula production switcher has the largest internal clipstore in its class. Kula provides ten clipstore outputs with 16GB of RAM which gives up to two minutes of uncompressed HD video and audio.
Considering Kula is a 2RU mainframe it still offers huge amount of input/outputs. With up to 36 inputs and 12 assignable outputs makes Kula a very practical production switcher. For extra flexibility Kula has an extra six bi-directional ports assignable to any input or output.
If legacy material is SD and your production is HD, 1 & 2 M/E Kula deals with both standards easily and effectively. Using FormatFusion 3, an award winning internal conversion technology, Kula converts the standard automatically freeing up precious time for your operator to focus on their creative production.
Up to 3Gbps all functions are supported without any compromises. UHD uses quad link and 2SI and is available on a 2 M/E and 3 M/E Kula at the 1 M/E UHD specification offering dedicated UHD keys, UHD transitions and UHD clipstores.
Kula has a range of panels. It offers up to 16 or 24 crosspoint buttons, separate key control and transition operations and assignable macro buttons with OLED displays for crystal clear identification. For total flexibility Kula can connect to up to eight extra modules to the panel from the Kahuna Maverik modular panel range.
