Moscow-based 24/7 Russian TV news channel Life has purchased SAM's Kahuna 4800 production switcher with Maverik control surface. The Kahuna, commissioned by SAM's system integrator, Studio Service, was installed and made live on air within two days.

SAM's Kahuna 4800 is a compact switcher that offers 2 to 4M/Es, 2.5 DVE and up to 24 key layers on a fully populated system. Kahuna's FormatFusion3 and recently introduced FormatFusion4 technology raises the bar for multi-format operations supporting any combination of SD, HD, 1080p, 4K, IP, and HDR.
