A new vision mixer designed specifically for mobile production or live event venues has been introduced at IBC2017.
FOR-A’s HVS-490 HD/4K unit supports up to 40 inputs/18 outputs, 36 inputs/20 outputs or 32 inputs/22 outputs, including two-channel HDMI outputs. Operating in 4K, it allows 10 inputs/six outputs, nine inputs/six outputs or eight inputs/seven outputs. It also has 16 channels of 2.5 DVE and can be expanded to a maximum of 32 channels.
Other switchers on FOR-A’s stand include the HVS-2000 and an updated version of the HVS-100, the HVS-100TB2. Both products feature built-in Thunderbolt technology that allows them to work with external devices.
Thunderbolt 2 I/O expansion cards enable single-cable transfer of four channels of HD video to a computer.
The HVS-2000 switcher now offers 3 M/E capabilities, a 4K 3D DVE expansion card, and a 2SI software option that enables switching with less delay than SQD systems.
A prototype of a new 3 M/E 12G-SDI compatible vision mixer is also on show.
Routing switchers on show include the 12G-SDI compatible MFR-4000 and the MFR-3000 3G/HD/SD/ASI unit.
