86 What are we doing the same as other switchers? SD/HD functionality Familiar control surface Familiar operational environment Basic creative toolset

87 What are we doing differently? True variable-format input functionality True variable-format output functionality Integrated Barco Folsom scaling technology Market-specific toolset Compatibility with current Barco systems

88 Whats the difference between FSN and Encore? Doesnt Encore cut, mix, wipe, key, switch and layer? –Yes, but Encore must set up its entire look on Preview, before transitioning that look to Program. –For example, even to transition a single key, Preview must be set up.

89 Whats the difference between FSN and Encore? FSN enables you to independently transition individual elements to/from Program. –Keys, PIPs, sources and effects can all be transitioned independently (and directly) to Program without a prior setup on Preview.

90 Whats the difference between FSN and Encore? Encore must transition all mixers simultaneously. –Encores mixers are all combined into one common output. FSN provides separate outputs for each mixer. –This enables you to transition each mixer independently or simultaneously.

91 Whats the difference between FSN and Encore? In addition: –FSN has dedicated functionality, and is very easy to use. Resource issues do not occur. –In minimum delay mode, FSN has 3 lines of delay for native input sources, while Encore provides 1 frame of delay for all sources. –While Encore can blend two or more outputs, FSN provides multiple single- screen outputs from Program and M/E banks, and from each Aux output.
