1. Is this switcher capable of out-putting an SD NTSC signal? YES IF THEY HAVE THE DOWNCONVERT BOARD IN IT WHICH IS NEW

If not would an AJA FS1 (or similar) be appropriate in this situation to down-convert the output?

2. The Panasonic sight says the switcher supports image files with alpha channel (PNG, Tiff). Does this mean I would be able to create my Titles and other character and graphic work in Photoshop/Illustrator? I would like to initially save on the cost of Character Generator (Is this a mistake?). YOU ARE CORRECT HERE, STILLS CAN BE CALLED UP FROM AN SD CARD

3. Each show segment will have at least one pre-made package-edit played. Which means we would ideally like to be playing these videos from a computer. The Switcher can have a DVI input but it seems to me that this would just be showing the current screen of the computer? Would a Kona (or similar) output card be the connection from CPU to switcher (since using the KonaTV application will send the playing video through its outputs)? WE USE PRO PRESENTER FOR THE MAC $399 TO PLAY BACK FULL HD QUICKTIMES VIA DVI THAT WOULD PLAY RIGHT INTO THAT SWITCHER

4. We would zap the signal out through a microwave. Anybody know what type of connection is typically used for the NTSC signal to get into the microwave? NA

5. Excluding lights, mics, and direct to disc recording what other critical things am I leaving out?
