In the beginning there was Kahuna
The world's first true multi-format switcher. A striking technical achievement that took the world of production switching by storm.
It redefined what was possible, setting new benchmarks for others to strive for, and perhaps most importantly of all - it was the precursor for what was to follow ....
A Revolution occurs in Production Switching
True 1080p processing, 3D DVE effects and up to a staggering 42 keyers, notionally spread across up to 6 M/Es, the Kahuna 360 is the world's most powerful production switcher. However, what really sets it apart from it's peers is it's flexibility. With MakeM/E technology the processing power can be re-assigned to create virtual M/Es, allowing a single mainframe to operate as up to 16, effectively independent switchers, each potentially with their own control surface. This unique ability allows you to tailor your Kahuna 360 to your exact requirements now - and adapt your Kahuna 360 to any requirements you may have in the future.
Kahuna 360 sets the standard at the pinnacle of production switching, but the revolution doesn't end there ...
The Revolution radiates through the world of Live Production
Kahuna 360 Compact
Based on the groundbreaking technology of Kahuna 360, the Compact version retains the core functionality that makes Kahuna 360 uniquely powerful and flexible, bringing the technology to more applications within live production, by virtue of both it's smaller size and lower price. Now you can have industry leading switcher performance even where space is limited, such as in OB applications or flyaways.
Kahuna 360 Compact has brought industry leading performance to the mid size production arena, but that's not the end of the story ...
The Transformation of the industry continues
