FOR-A shows 3Gb/s switchers

At NAB 2008 FOR-A introduced the 3Gb/s HVS-5000 switcher series, with three new models, the 2 M/E HVS-5200, the HVS-5300 with 3 M/E, and the HVS-5400 with 4 M/E channels.

The HVS-5000 series supports the 3Gb/s signal standard, enabling broadcasters to easily and affordably migrate to the emerging 1080p HD format. In addition to HD and SD signals, this switcher series supports 1080/60p, 1080/59.94p and 1080/50p.

All switchers in the series are designed for both live and post production. And all models come standard with a touch panel controller. Users can operate all switcher functions through this feature, including editing the still store and sequence timeline and making color correction settings.

The HVS-5000 series offers switching between HD and SD and between varieties of HD formats. An optional up/downconverter card also supports mixed input from HD and SD signals. Supported HD formats include 1080/60i, 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 1080/24p, 1080/24PsF, 1080/23.98p, 1080/23.98PsF, 720/60p, 720/59.94p and 720/50p. The HVS-5000 series also supports SD formats such as 525/60 and 625/50.

The switchers can be tailored to meet a variety of applications and can scale to fit an array of existing configurations. The HVS-5400 switcher, for example, accepts a maximum of 96 inputs and can supply to a total 48 outputs. The HVS-5300 accepts a maximum of 96 inputs and 44 outputs. The HVS-5200 can accept up to 32 inputs and 24 outputs.
