Video Switcher HVS-490.
FOR-A showcase its extensive range of hybrid SDI and IP products at IBC 2022.
Central to the company’s strategy is to provide a solid migration path, built on existing as well as new products, towards IP connectivity for all users.
One of the core implementations is the NDI protocol support, the IP standard which has rapidly grown in popularity, and allows users to work with mild compression as well as uncompressed video streams. NDI also incorporates significant metadata allowing devices to be discovered on a network, simplifying installation. NDI is designed for low latency, which makes it ideal for live production.
This connectivity also enables packaged solutions to be assembled and operated easily. A typical configuration might be the FOR-A HVS-490 production switcher, teamed with the MFR-3100EX all in one production center and ClassX and Brainstorm graphics, all of which have NDI options for seamless operation.
