FOR-A switching at Times Union Center

A For-A HVS-390HS 2 M/E video switcher is part of the new video production system at the Times Union Center, home to American ice hockey league side Albany Devils.

Production company Myriad Productions supervised the upgrade and worked with systems integrator Com Tech.

“In looking at the For-A HVS-390HS versus many of its competitors, some big perks stuck out for us,” explained Chris Pascucci, Myriad Productions’ CTO in a press release. “The switcher gave us the best bang for the buck and still met the broad range of requirements we were working with. The fact that we could get a full 2 M/E HVS-390HS unit that offered frame syncs on all the inputs, redundant power supplies and web browser access at no additional expense made it ideal for the facility.”

The arena has a seating capacity of 17,500 and also hosts concerts, and other live sporting events.

“All the teams request that the score and clock be included alongside the sports action in their video archives,” said Pascucci. “The second M/E in the HVS-390HS allows us to easily provide the required picture-in-picture without the need for additional hardware, and without tying up our main switching bus or graphics channels.”
