FOR-A To Debut 12G Multichannel Server and Variable Frame Rate Camera

At the 2018 IBC Show FOR-A Corp. is showing a new multi-channel video server that supports 12G infrastructures. The new MBP-1000VS 12G-SDI/IP server is ideal for 4K studio environments, offering multi-input/output 4K and HD support and ingest, playout and 4K recording functionality.

The FOR-A MBP-1000VS can be ordered with either a 4K XAVC or MPEG-2 codec, which allows for a direct interface to a variety of NLE systems via Ethernet connection.

The company said it is offering a range of MBP-1000VS interfaces for 12G-SDI or video over IP transmission, including 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, and SFP+, to accommodate varying user needs for inputs/outputs and size of internal storage (SSD).

FOR-A will also show the USF-106UDC-12G 4K up/down converter, which provides Interlace/Progressive and up/down conversion for HD to 4K. The USF-106UDC-12G supports conversion between the following 4K signal formats: 12G-SDI/quad link 3G-SDI, 3G-SDI Level A/B, 2SI/SQD and ITU-R BT.2020/709.

Finally, the company will spotlight a new Variable Frame Rate Camera that’s specially designed for live, instant replay in ultra-slow motion. The new FT-ONE-SS4K camera supports UHD shot at up to 1000 frames per second and provides continual, real-time 4K live output. A native 2/3-inch image sensor enables the use of a B4 bayonet broadcast lens directly on the camera.
