Overview This digital audio mixer is designed for a host of applications including cases where the video signals of video equipment are combined through digital processing or where many different kinds of effects are added. It incorporates two frame synchronizers, a feature which makes it unnecessary for two video signals to be synchronized. Its dedicated software program, the MX-Navi, enables titles to be downloaded from a PC to facilitate the insertion of titles.
