Where can I buy a 4 channel video mixer, preferably that can do some basic fades and wipes, and possibly overlays. It doesnt need to have high quality inputs. BNC, composite, or S-video inputs are preffered. Thanks!
Believe or not, I still have a lot of Videonics gear here. It’s in great shape and is good for basic video.
I used to have a Panasonic AVE-5, it was a good mixer but 2 channel. You may be able to find one cheap online or on eBay.
Oh, and I still have a WJ-MX-10 if anybody is interested.
B & H video has a selection of video mixers, several under $1500 that have four inputs and all the bells and whistles of a basic switcher. Any of them can meet your needs. I would recommend that if you can’t afford to purchase a new switcher, you can use B & H to learn about your options then check out eBay or any number of video outlet stores.
Good luck in your search.
