Indian River Community College selects FOR-A technology
October 18, 2004
Indian River Community College (IRCC) has chosen virtual studio and production switching technology from FOR-A for its new Kight Center for Emerging Technologies. The new multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art building will open in 2005
IRCC will use the FOR-A VPS-400D/DP digital production switcher to create educational programs for students and teachers.
Paul Lefavi, Distance Learning Technology Coordinator at IRCC, chose a new FOR-A digiWarp-EX II virtual studio system for IRCC's main campus in Fort Pierce, FL, and a FOR-A VPS-400D/DP digital/analog video production system for the Clark Advanced Learning Center located at IRCC's Chastain campus, in Stuart, FL.
Lefavi said the FOR-A technology will help IRCC create new weekly programs, 3-D animated backgrounds and other educational materials (e.g., interactive DVDs). The system, when complete, will link all of the community college’s remotely located campuses.
The digiWarp-EX II virtual studio, a Windows-based system, enables users to create complex backgrounds composed of object layers with a live blue screen image. This expands the limits for depth-of-field production in 3-D space beyond what was possible with a single background layer.
Providing 10-bit 4:2:2:4 processing, the VPS-400D/DP digital/analog video production switcher offers a wide range of features.
