FOR-A to introduce compact, multiformat production switcher at IBC2008

FOR-A will introduce the HVS-300HS HD/SD switcher, which features a 1RU main unit, during IBC2008, Sept. 12-16.

While the 1 M/E HVS-300HS is compact, its size does not limit the variety of options and functions available. As a live production switcher, the HVS-300HS provides an array of features and multifunctionality. The switcher supports 1080/60i, 59.94i, 50i, 24PsF, 23.98PsF, 720/60p, 59.94p, 50p, 525/60 (NTSC) and 625/50 (PAL). It also contains an internal 10-bit processor for broadcast-quality 4:2:2:4.

Control buttons located on the front panel of the main unit allow an operator to perform all standard switcher operations, such as cuts, wipes, fades and keys. Control parameters are displayed on a preview output for ease of operation, and users can install control software to run the switcher from a PC. An external operation panel can be added for increased functionality.
