Switch Switcher needed, but which one?

    I film depositions for a court reporting co. My set up in a nutshell is a Sony HXR-NX100 camera, an Elmo document projector/camera and I am running these into a Kanex pro 4K HDMI 4 port splitter which has 1 input and four outputs. From there I run everything into a Cerevo Livewedge HDMI switcher which I use mainly for picture in picture.

    Here's the thing, sometimes the attorney wants to run his/her computer and the Elmo at the same time. So I need a switcher to switch from Elmo to attorney laptop and vice versa.

    You may be wondering why I don't just use the Cerevo live wedge switcher. Well, I need to send a feed of just the exhibits to the the witness. I don't want the witness to see him or herself on their monitor PIP, just the exhibits.

    Does this make any sense? Thanks for your time.

    Hello Johnny,

    Thank you for reaching out on our HelpCenter.

    If you could provide a diagram depicting your setup - that could be very helpful. In the meantime - we have some clarifying questions:

    1) When switching between Elmo and the laptop - are you looking to switch video only? Or are you also looking to switch USB keyboard/mouse control?
    2) What type video interface does Elmo have?
    3) What type video interface does the laptop have?

    Please advise.
