CYPRESS, CALIF.—For-A, partnering with Communications Engineering Inc., has unveiled its slate of products that will be on display at the 2015 Government Video Expo. Among the highlights will be For-A’s portable video switcher, video transmission and signal processing systems.


The HVS-100 is For-A’s portable video switcher that includes a mixed HD/SD input, frame synchronizing, re-sizing engine, 2.5D wipe effects, DVE, Chroma keyer and DSK. The switcher also features a built-in Web browser for remote control and a clip memory feature that supports playback of video or animations. It comes standard with eight HD/SD SDI inputs, four HD/SDI outputs and one HDMI output.

Also on hand will be the Fujitsu video transmission technology. Able to operate at less than 99ms back-to-back latency, this system uses its encoder/decoder technology for HD/SD content delivery.
