SSI Advanced Post Switches with For-A Hanabi

HD/SD SSI Advanced Post Services has tapped For-A for its Hanabi HVS-1000HS HD/SD video switcher for its two HD telecine bays.

The switcher features one M/E 16-input switcher that supports 1080i, 24p, 720p and SD formats and offers 10-bit, 4:2:2:4 digital component processing.

"We decided to purchase For-A's Hanabi switchers because they support 1080/24sf, 1080/60i and 720/60p, the three top formats we need to serve our clientele," said Gary Fradkin, director of engineering for SSI Advanced Post Services, based in Los Angeles. Clients include Paramount, Warner Bros., Sony/Columbia Pictures, among others and did the "War of the Worlds" campaign, including the IP transfer, HD editing and 5.1 channel surround audio mixing.
