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.

I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
