RCN TV Selects For-A HD/SD Switcher, Frame Synchronizer
August 8, 2007
FOR-A Corp. of America recently announced the sale of a Hanabi HVS-500HS switcher and FA-9000 signal processor to RCN Televisión in Colombia.
Both units were recently installed in the RCN TV mobile production truck. RCN TV is one of the largest private television channels in Colombia, reaching 97 percent of the Colombian population through 13 stations.
Daniel Amaya, broadcast manager with systems integration company Daga SA, has a long-standing relationship with RCN TV and encouraged them to select FOR-A products for their production truck.
"We represent FOR-A in Colombia, and we consider their products to be of the highest quality. RCN TV is very happy with the equipment they've just installed and are currently considering purchasing more products from FOR-A in the coming months," Amaya said.
Before installing the HVS-500HS, RCN TV used a complex production system, akin to those used for feature films, to record scenes for its telenovelas, which added unnecessarily to production costs. The HVS-500HS switcher not only simplified production, it reduced overall costs and allowed RCN to better utilize its much larger production equipment.
