Broadster – new line of broadcast production switchers from “GURAMEX” company offering universal solution for most of the tasks of the broadcast market.
Each of the model from the given series has ergonomic compact design with intuitive understandable interface that makes operation easier and also provides high reliability during broadcasting. At the same time a functional capability corresponds to its “large” and more expensive analogues, presented on market. Broadster maximally saves space and is the best solution as for various size studios as well for OB-Vans that suffer problems connected with lack of operation space.
Switcher has unique features: Operates as with digital as well with analogue signals. Using Auto Detection GVM1610 identifies type of incoming video signal, and frame synchronizers - built in each input - provide their synchronization.
ME Plus™ – ground breaking function, that doubles production abilities. With a simple push on a button you turn 1ME production switcher into 2ME device.
Picture in Picture function abilities are expanded in the new switcher. You are able to work with more number of windows for developing of combined image. In GVM1610 function allows overlay on output signal up to 5 scaled windows and display combinations without use of key channel!
Enhanced integrated 2 channel Multiviewer solution and built in wave form scope will be great help while keeping track of all signal sources production switcher operates with.
Since Broadster is a solution, corresponding to the broadcast market, first of all, Guramex took care of that it would operate stably without interruptions. Equipped with parts of the leading producers Broadster will operate 24/7 during many years. You will not have to choose compactness on the expense of less functionality. We are so sure in reliability of our product that we provide 5 years warranty.
Broadster GVM1610 is featured with 16 PAL/SDI inputs. 8 Dual PAL+SDI outputs include PGM, PVW and 6 AUX outputs. Each output signal has analog and digital outputs, able to work and transmit the same signal in both formats simultaneously.
Broadster GVM1610H is featured with up to 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs. Modular architecture allows changing configuration according user priorities - one can choose 8,12 or 16 input assembling for GVM1610H. Dedicated Quad screen output is represented on each input module. Along with that, GVM1610H has 8 free assignable HD/SD-SDI outputs for PGM, PVW and Auxiliary outputs.
Each input of Broadster GVM1610 automatically indentifies the type of signal its dealing with- digital or analog/HD or SD-SDI for GVM1610H without any additional settings or equipment.
Production switcher is equipped with frame synchronizers at all inputs that allows mixing of any non-synchronous signals smoothly without interruptions, without use of additional external synchronization.
Internal / External synchronization mode
Production switcher can operate in both external/internal synchronization mode. In external synchronization mode the generator is carried out from the input reference signal.
ME Plus™ – the newest development of Guramex – increases your production capabilities by creating additional ME, thus transforming Broadster GVM1610 into production switcher with 2 ME possibilities and spirit!
With ME Plus™ you gain:
The switcher provides wide opportunities for keying :
Unique Chroma-key, Luma-key, Video-Key and Preset Pattern are included in switcher basic configuration.
Moreover each of the scaled pictures from 5 channel PiP can be used as a key fill source.
Picture in Picture
Outstanding for small production switcher Picture-in-Picture performance.
Create combined image with up to 5 scaled pictures and background with possibility of Dynamic Transition of combined images. The pictures can be moved, resized, repositioned, cropped and given colored border. PiP can be used as an additional source without occupying DVE and keying channels. At the same time, in case of need, each of scaled pictures can be used as fill source for keying.
Up to 16 state of PiP function can be saved and delegated to buttons of “One Touch Section”. Single push of button provides transition between PIP states with defined duration
Fully integrated, 2 channel internal solution for the multi-screen image is at your service.
Multi-Viewer allows you to display up to 16 video streams on a single screen in different modes. Each video stream has its own audiometer, UMD and plenty of other markers. The source can be any external video signal, as well as master-channel, or any other internally formed signal.
Due to built in waveform scope there is an opportunity to display parameters of any video signal source through multiviewer.
The output signal has a resolution of 1920x1080 and is displayed via DVI-D / HDMI outputs.
Animated logotype Generator
Isolated, independent channel for displaying Animated Logotype. Supports most popular - AVI video format. Simply upload the picture and drag it into right place on the screen
Internal Video Clip Storage
You may upload own designed graphic wipes, TV headband or background clips to the GVM1610s Dual-channel nonvolatile video storage.
Each channel can store about 96 slides and clips with total duration up to 10 min (25frame/sec).
Created to allow each user to save his frequently used switcher configuration, Event Memory memorizes up to 99 states, of which 16 can be assigned to hot recall buttons in “One Touch Section”.
Assistant Software Control allows you to control Main Unit and perform any necessary action directly from your PC.
You've got one more ace up your sleeve - Broadster Multi Platform! Turn your Android Tab or Smartphone into a Live Production Control Panel.
Broadster Multi Platform gives you the freedom and flexibility to manage your work from many popular devices.

All inputs/outputs of production switcher GVM1610 are evenly distributed on two independent modules. Such allocation helps to maximize the survivability of the system.
Both of modules are functionally equal. One operates in «master mode», while the second in the «slave mode». In case of necessity operation of the second module can be switched to «master mode».
Provides input and output of the balanced audio signal. GURAMEX Audio Module is intended to arrange audio signal processing, embedding and de-embedding operations inside Broadster without additional equipment.
Robotic Camera Control
One more planned product of GURAMEX which makes easy a process of production and allows a stage director to control broadcasting independently. This is Robotic Camera Control – function that allows changing of position of cameras in certain range.
Removable Video Recorder Storage
This is an optional function representing a way of recording of input and output signals. Removable Video Recorder Storage is intended for storing information and can be easily connected to internal studio equipment for playback.
