Imagecraft Productions Offers Cost-Effective FlyPacks Complete with FOR-A Video Solutions

Imagecraft Productions has developed a flypack production kit that can be shipped virtually anywhere and includes a video production switcher, router, multi-viewer and signal processor—all are capable of supporting a high-quality multi-camera HD production.

Specifically, the Imagecraft flypack consists of a FOR-A HVS-2000 video switcher, FA-1010 signal processor, MV-4200 multi-viewer and MFR-5000 router.

The new flypacks are being used for concert productions, live shows, virtual reality setups and gaming conventions. The company had previously owned a FOR-A HVS-390HS video switcher that it continues to use in its road kits as well.

“We were looking for a flexible and portable multi-format, multi-camera video equipment package that would work in either HD or UHD,” said Jason Been, Owner and President, Imagecraft Productions. “We work on a variety of productions, so our production setup requirements can vary a lot. Because of the flexibility of the FOR-A product line and its ability to integrate together so seamlessly, we are able to accommodate any needs of our clients.”

The FOR-A HVS-2000 2 M/E video switcher offers the capabilities of a 7 M/E unit with its unique features that include the company’s MELite functionality—which allows a traditional AUX bus to be transformed into a functional Mix Effects with cuts, mix, wipes, keys, and DVE including full preview. MELite is also used for upstream and downstream transition effects. Other unique functions of the HVS-2000 include FLEXaKEY, which allows operators to add, move, and multiply key and DVE layers to traditional M/E or MELite resources, and a 2SI software option.

FOR-A’s MV-4200 multi-viewer and MFR-5000 routing switcher were also selected as part of Imagecraft’s integrated solutions package. The MFR-5000 offers multi-format support, outstanding redundancy, and allows a matrix of up to 128 inputs/128 outputs to be configured. The MV-4200 multi-viewer offers customizable layouts and is ideal for productions with mixed signal environments.
