Karrera Video Production Center

Streamlined Power for Fast, Efficient and Creative Productions

As a software-based platform, Karrera with K-Frame is a new modular approach to production switchers that delivers more creativity to create compelling and engaging content with multiformat support including 1080p and 4K. With Karrera, you can lower your initial hardware investment and simply upgrade as your production needs change.

  • Karrera gives you up to 192 inputs, 96 outputs and up to 9 M/Es with six keyers in every full M/E.
  • Karrera combines ultimate mid-range switcher performance, along with proven workflows and simplified control of complex productions, with 3 M/Es (35 crosspoints) or 2 M/Es (25 crosspoints) – for exceptional affordability – with up to 80x48 I/Os...
