Live Switcher Suggestions for SONY HDW-730S Cameras

I'm looking for some recommendations on a high quality, live switcher for two SONY HDW-730S video cameras.

Ideally, I'm looking for something that has on-board monitoring of the video sources and HD-SDI inputs and outputs. Although I'm also open to other alternatives as well...

Thanks!

One of my clients is very happy with the Panasonic HS400 switcher. I'll see it in action next week. It's basically an HD-SDI switcher, with optional modules for several other formats.

No built-in monitoring... but it does composite multiple sources to a single large monitor, using splitscreen/PiP.

Thanks very much for all the suggestions! I have looked at the SONY device (and love it), but will also look into these others as well...

Much appreciated!
