In Industry News by tfwm

During the 2015 NAB Show, FOR-A will showcase the latest version of its 4K high-speed camera, multi-viewing and signal processing technology, and a variety of video switchers, including the new HVS-2000. The company’s product display will focus on 4K technologies for every stage of the video production process. FOR-A will exhibit in Booth C5117 during the show, which takes place April 13-16 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

A highlight at FOR-A’s NAB booth will be the versatile, cost-efficient HVS-2000 video switcher, which is being shown for the first time in the U.S. The HVS-2000 is a flexible SD, HD, 3G and 4K video switcher that allows up to 48 inputs/18 outputs or 40 inputs/22 outputs. The unit features exclusive features unique to other switchers in its class, including the introduction of MELite™, HVS-2000 Video Switcherwhich allows a traditional AUX bus to transform into a functional M/E with cut, mix, wipe and key control; ONStage™, a newly developed technology designed specifically for staging events where multiple image magnification displays are used; and FLEXaKEY™, which allows operators to tailor their production needs by adding and moving key and DVE layers to traditional M/E resources or to MELite resources.

Other video switchers that will be displayed include the popular HVS-390HS unit, which includes 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs and eight outputs (expandable to 24 inputs and 13 outputs), with frame synchronizers for all inputs. Offering powerful tools to create a richer audience experience, current HVS-390HS customers include houses of worship, universities, public access television stations, major newsgathering organizations, government agencies and network news stations. FOR-A will also show the HVS-110 HD/SD portable video switcher, which features a compact design that makes it an ideal choice for use in small broadcasting vans and flypacks.

On the camera front, FOR-A will introduce the newest version of its 4K variable frame rate camera, the FT-ONE-S. The new 4K camera allows operators to separate the camera head from the body for exceptional mobility. Capable of shooting up to 360 frames per second (fps), the FT-ONE-S enables unprecedented shooting positions and camera angling for live sports and events.

FOR-A will display a number of its 4K compatible multi-viewers in its NAB booth, including the MV-1620HSA, MV-42HSA and MV-4200 units. The MV-1620HSA is a 1RU unit that accepts up to 16 channels of signals for monitoring on up to two screens, and can be cascaded with other units to FT-ONE-S_Pers_141113display up to 64 sources simultaneously. FOR-A’s MV-4200 is a 2 RU unit multi viewer that supports 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, analog composite, HDMI, DVI and RGBHV sources. The unit accepts 4K signals and is capable of handling up to 68 inputs and 8 channels of output, while the MV-42HSA is a down-converter ideal for monitoring 4K footage. First introduced last year, all of the units are now deliverable.

Another highlight of FOR-A’s NAB booth will be the FA-505 multi-channel signal processor. Offering extreme connectivity, the five-input, five-output signal processor features up/down/cross/aspect ratio conversion capability on each input. Ideal for 4K applications, features of the unit include: a powerful synchronizer that includes frame/line/AVDL modes, video delay line of up to eight frames, full RGB color correction, and 16 channels of embedded audio per channel – with the ability to remap channels from any input to any output.
