San Francisco video production rental house Rental Express Video recently purchased For-A’s HVS-3800HS Hanabi switcher to build the city’s first HD flypack as part of the company’s expansion to HD production.
The HVS-3800HS is designed for both live-to-air events and line-cut television production applications. The switcher operates in multiple formats, including 1080i, 720p, 525/60, 625/50 and variations of 1080/24p.
Rental Express Video Vice President and General Manager Steve Barger said his company decided to make the HD equipment upgrades in response to a shift in film and television productions. “Our clients are increasingly seeking stunning high-definition video, either in single-camera EFP or in multicamera live location HD production,” he said. “The For-A switcher offered excellent multiformat capability, compact frame and high-quality production value for this purpose.”
The company said Rental Express’ system is the only turnkey 2 M/E HD multicam system based in northern California and one of just a handful nationwide.
