FOR-A will demonstrate its HVS-5000 switcher series during IBC2009. The HVS-5000 series supports the 3Gb/s signal standard, enabling broadcasters to migrate to the emerging 1080p HD format. In addition to HD and SD signals, this switcher series supports 1080/60p, 1080/59.94p and 1080/50p.
This line of switchers expands on FOR-A’s flagship HANABI series of switchers and offers three new model choices: the HVS-5300A with 2 M/E, the HVS-5300 with 3 M/E and the HVS-5400 with 4 M/E. All switchers in the series are designed for both live broadcast and post production, and all come standard with a touch-panel controller.
