FOR-A to exhibit new products at InfoComm

FOR-A will spotlight several recently introduced products at the 2011 InfoComm Show, which runs June 15-17 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

Included will be FOR-A’s FA-9500 multipurpose signal processor, HVS-350HS HD/SD 1.5 M/E digital video switcher, FVW-500HS HD/SD video writer, LTR-100HS video archive recorder, MV-3200 series multiviewer and MV-1600HS series multiviewer.

The FA-9500 multipurpose signal processor offers frame sync and video and audio conversion tools, as well as a variety of options for improved video production functionality. It supports 3G-SDI, HD/SD-SDI, and analog composite I/O, and provides up/down/cross/aspect converters, a second converter, color corrector and automatic video optimizer as standard features.

For mobile production units and smaller control rooms, FOR-A will also show the HVS-350HS switcher. It includes eight inputs and outputs standard (expandable to 24 inputs and 12 outputs), and its 10-bit processor supports 1080i, 720p, NTSC and PAL formats. Built-in frame synchronizers on each input and a resizing engine on four inputs allows asynchronous signals — including HD, SD, analog, and PC signals — to be switched in the same program.

Also being demonstrated will be the FVW-500HS video writer, which enables freehand drawing and positioning of objects and image files over video. This system provides drawing tools for a variety of markets, including usage in replay commentary in sports broadcasts, news programs and weather forecasts.

FOR-A’s LTR-100HS video archiving recorder will also be on display. The recorder supports LTO-5 technology to provide an archive solution. Equipped with an MPEG-2 codec, the LTR-100HS includes an MXF wrapper/un-wrapper, so MXF files (XDCAM HD/HD422/IMX) recorded to LTO-5 tape can be used directly by many NLE systems. LTO-5 tape cartridges can store approximately 50 hours of programming recorded at 50Mb/s.

Finally, FOR-A’s MV-3200 series multiviewer provides customizable support for up to 32 inputs and four display outputs. It offers a multimonitor display environment suited to a system by selecting and installing the required input and output cards on a 2U frame, so control rooms don’t have to supplement their video walls with additional monitors.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
