Video and audio systems manufacturer For-A Corp. has announced the sale of a Hanabi HVS-500HS switcher and FA-9000 signal processor to RCN-TV, a Colombian broadcaster and producer of telenovela, "Ugly Betty." Both units were recently installed in RCN-TV's mobile production truck.

The compact 1 RU unit features an upconverter, downconverter, color corrector, median-based noise reduction technology, a logo generator, and a Dolby-E decoder.
The FA-9000 supports input and output formats for digital signals such as HD-SDI and SD-SDI, analog component (HD and SD), and analog composite. A Dolby-E decoder can be installed for accurate monitoring and signal correction for surround sound signals in a multi-channel audio environment.
The HVS-500HS switcher has 10-bit, 4:2:2 internal processing. Input/output interfaces include: HD/SD SDI, HD/SD Analog, VGA and HDV/DV. It can connect to HDV cameras or PCs.
