FOR-A to debut new HD/SD switcher at NAB 2006

FOR-A will introduce its latest Hanabi series switcher, the HVS-500HS, at NAB2006. The new model is an economical, compact and self-contained switcher that accepts HD, SD, HDV and DV formats.

It comes with 10-bit, 4:2:2 internal processing. Unique to the HVS-500HS is its variety of input/output interfaces including HD/SD SDI, HD/SD analog, VGA and HDV/DV. It is also able to connect to HDV cameras or PCs.

The switcher is multiformat in HD for 1080/60i, 50i, 720/60p, and is switchable from NTSC to PAL. The standard switcher has four HD/SD SDI inputs, two PGM outputs and three AUX outputs. Optional input and output devices include additional four HD/SD-SDI inputs, four HD/SD analog with VGA inputs and one HDV/DV.

Thirteen inputs are available. Four asynchronous inputs can be supported when an optional frame synchronization card is added. One channel of up-conversion is also available as an option. FOR-A will begin shipping the HVS-500HS to customers in July.
