Los Angeles-based production company RPR Sports recently acquired the new FOR-A HVS-300HS HD/SD portable video switcher for location shoots.
According to RPR Sports director of operations Robert Real, the company often needs to react to tight deadlines and work in small spaces in extremely remote locations, while accommodating multicamera HD shoots, on-set projection and live uplinks.
Setup on location is simplified by the frame sync capability found on every input of the HVS-300HS. The switcher’s HD inputs and multiple HD outputs as well as its built-in, 16-channel multiviewer reduce production costs by eliminating the need for additional monitors. The expanded aux outputs with the SDI output option provide flexibility for feeding monitors or projectors, as well as providing an aux for a producer.
