FOR-A Focuses on 12G and IP

FOR-A’s NAB exhibit emphasises 12G supported products and solutions that integrate baseband and IP for applications, including live studio and sports production.

FOR-A’s newest switcher, the 12G-SDI supported HVS-6000, will make its show debut. The latest in FOR-A’s line of HANABI switchers, the HVS-6000 offers 4K support, maximum 48 input / 24 output in 12G, and scalability to users looking to transition to 8K further down the line.

The 2 M/E HVS-6000 offers frame synchronization, frame buffer, 3D DVE, and 4 keyers per M/E with DVE function + 4 DSK’s. The solution will be shown in the booth’s video switcher area alongside its existing 4K supported units, including the powerful HVS-2000, which offers the performance of a 7 M/E switcher.

In its 12G/IP technology area, FOR-A will showcase its entire USF-Series of universal systems frames and introduce the USF-106UDC-12G 4K up/down converter – which offers Interlace/Progressive and up/down conversion for a range of signals from SD and HD to 4K.

Other new solutions in this area will include the MFR-6000 SD/HD/3G/6G/12G router with a matrix of up to 144 x 144 and MBP-1000VS-12G/IP 4K video server - which offers multi-input/output 4K and HD support and ingest, playout and 4K recording functionality.

In the company’s HDR technology area, the firm will introduce a system package that includes the HVS-490 video switcher, MFR-3000 routing switcher, MV-4200 multi viewer and ClassX content creation and graphics playout solution.

Another solution to be shown in this section is the InSync MCC-4K motion compensated converter – a hardware-based unit that offers conversion from any 3G/HD-SDI frame rate to any other 3G/HD-SDI frame rate, as well as up/down conversion to and from 3G/HD and UHD.

FOR-A’s camera stage booth area features the FT-ONE-LS-12G high-speed full 4K camera supports 4K at 500 frames per second (fps) or up to 1,200 fps in HD resolution. Alongside this will be the ZE-ONEA 4K extraction system with new automatic motion tracking function, RFC-ONE real-time flash corrector and FC-ONE flicker corrector.

In its virtual system area, look for demos of the VRCAM-NX sensor-less virtual studio system and Brainstorm Infinity Set advanced virtual system. The FVW-700-4K 4K/HD telestrator will also be showcased in this area.
