DVswitch is a digital video mixer intended for interactive live mixing of several incoming DV video streams.

DVswitch is a digital video mixer intended for interactive live mixing of several incoming DV video streams.

Above you see the main mixer screen and 4 live sources: audio, presenter, audience, projector.

It was originally designed for the needs of DebConf. It has now been used for various other conferences, meetings and live musical performances.

Currently DVswitch can combine audio from one source with video from another and can combine two video streams with a picture-in-picture effect. Further mixing effects are planned. It works solely with the DV format since it is widely supported by camcorders and it allows for low latency display and cutting.

DVswitch was presented at FOSDEM in 2009; see the slides or the video.
