Tele Inter-Rives acquires FOR-A switcher for news

Northern Quebec broadcaster Tele Inter-Rives has purchased FOR-A’s Hanabi HVS-3800S 2 M/E HD production switcher for its live news broadcasts from station CFTF-TV in Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec.

The broadcasters’ new HVS-3800S is an upgrade of its existing HANABI HVS-3000S SD switcher at sister stations CIMT and CKRT-TV in Riviere-du-Loup. The HVS-3800S can be easily upgraded to handle all HD formats.

Riviere-du-Loup is about 125mi east of Quebec City. With such a remote location, the broadcaster was looking for a stable switcher with a strong internal DVE.

The HVS-3800S features a polygon-based DVE. Up to two 3-D DVE cards can be installed on the HVS-3800S. One card can support two channels when working in the SD mode and one channel of HD when the switcher is upgraded to full HD capability. Two cards provide up to two channels in HD and four channels in SD. A DVE channel can be assigned to any M/E or key layer.
