Kiva Express Duet

Compact Presentation Video Server

Live Presentation made Easy!

Kiva Express Duet is an operator-driven live playout solution that makes presenting stills, motion clips, music, sound effects, and ‘playlists of media’ on multiple video screens easy.

Featuring a highly intuitive user interface, Kiva Express Duet is specifically tailored for fast, easy, and simple operator-driven content presentation.

Not only that, the preview and program Video Players in Kiva Express Duet can be simultaneously driven from a range of remote-control devices such as video switchers, third-party control panels, remote Ross DashBoard virtual control panels, and more.

Elevating your live presentation and engaging your audience has never been this easy!

Budget Friendly

Kiva Express Duet is fitted with a single PVW+PGM Video Player ‘Channel Pair’ — with both players featuring Key Outputs. You can purchase Kiva Express Duet without breaking your budget, and still meet all the demands of your live presentation needs.


We get it. Mountains of money depend on the integrity of your live productions — and happily, Kiva Express Duet rises to the challenge!  Kiva Express Duet is built with hardware-based, real-time media processing engines, ensuring your live productions will NEVER suffer from video playout stutters, audio dropouts, user interface freezes, or unexpected hang-ups.

Rugged Chassis

Maximum system reliability is ensured with a rugged 2RU system chassis featuring dual-redundant, hot-swappable power supply modules that protect against power supply failures.

Professional Quality

Kiva Express Duet employs the ‘mezzanine-quality’ AVC-Intra Class 100 video codec and features uncompressed digital audio with 24-bit resolution and 48kHz sampling.

These technical specs ensure your live productions will always look their best — with crisp, clean, and clear visuals and impactful audio clarity.

Single Clip Workflow

The native Video+Key+Audio” (VKA) architecture of Kiva Express Duet unifies these three media elements into a single clip asset.

This eliminates the need to create, manage, import, and control two separate assets for each ‘Fill+Key’ element. This feature alone will dramatically simplify your pre-production and live operations.

Media Files Galore!

Integrated media file import tools in Kiva Express Duet dramatically streamline file-based workflows — and support a huge variety of media file codecs and wrappers.

Ingested media files are automatically transcoded, resized, and have the frame rate adjusted to match the active operational video standard of the Kiva Express Duet video server during file import.

Channel Pairs

Kiva Express Duet features one video+audio base-band recording input, one Video+Key PVW Player output pair, and one Video+Key PGM Player output pair.

Software Downloads

All Kiva Express Duet Presentation video servers are fitted with the AVC-lntra Class 100 native recording & playout video codec, capturing superior mezzanine-quality content.
