With 4 independent true seamless layers per screen, as well as an independent Native Background layer included for Soft Edge Blending or individual screen modes, NeXtage 16 is an exciting tool to create impressive shows.
Versatile connectivity and extensive set of formats
The switch between any of the 28 input plugs can be operated in instant Clean Cut.
