Here comes the FOR-A flood29 August 2013
Launching in Amsterdam is a flood of new products from FOR-A, including the new MINI M/E, offered as a standard feature of the HVS-390HS 2 M/E vision mixer, which enables the mixer to deliver the power of a virtual 6 M/E mixer.
The MINI M/E extension allows the deployment of any aux-bus transition with cuts, mixes or wipes, and to display a keyer complete with DVE functions.
Elsewhere, the BB-100 Broadcast Box represents a new FOR-A product range of video servers that provide recording and playout of multiformat video files. Available as play, record and play/record models, Broadcast Box aims to offer versatility and ease of use at a competitive price.
Broadcast Box can be used standalone to offer video recording and/or studio playout. It can also work directly with vision mixers and, when integrated with a digital FOR-A vision mixer, such as the popular HVS-390HS, can provide a flexible video/audio contribution feed.
The FA-1010 is a general-purpose multichannel frame synchroniser and is equipped with many functions that are required in video production. Notably it allows asynchronous signal path routing for up to ten channels of video, and up to 160 channels of embedded audio, with clean-cut synchronised outputs, all within a 1RU box.
The FA-9520 is a dual-channel multipurpose signal processor. It is equipped for a variety of applications in master control, mobile production, post production services, live production, and more.
The FA-9250 is a dual-channel version of the FA-9500 processor and it supports 3G-SDI, HD/SD-SDI, and analogue composite I/O. In addition to frame synchronisation, it provides up/down/cross/aspect conversion, two channels of full RGB colour correction, logo inserter functions and an automatic video optimiser (AVO) as standard.
And finally, the new HVS-XT HD/SD compact vision mixer series is designed for live events, news studios, OB vans and corporate production.
