InfoComm: FOR-A Highlights Integrated Product Range Supporting 12G-SDI/4K and Video-Over-IP

Thursday May 30, 2019. 01:36 AM , from Digital Pro Sound
Cypress, CA, May 28,
2019 – A range of
flexible video production switchers, video servers, and graphics systems
that consistently support both 12G-SDI/4K and 3G-SDI/HD resolution will be a focal
point of the FOR-A®  booth at the upcoming InfoComm
Show in Orlando. Demonstrating
video production solutions for corporate video, worship, sports and live event
applications, FOR-A will exhibit in Exhibit Hall, West Level 2, Booth 1861
during the show which runs from June 8-14 in the Orlando Convention Center.

booth lineup includes the HVS-490 and HVS-1200 HANABI switchers, Variant
Systems Group’s Envivo Studio production suite and Envivo Replay sports and
live event replay solution, ClassX content creation and graphics playout
solution, and the ODYSSEY Insight video server.

The compact HANABI HVS-490 opens the door to more affordable 4K production. HDMI 2.0b specification support provides 4K output to a multi-viewer. Offering exclusive features, including MELite technology, which extends the switcher’s 2 M/Es to offer 6 M/E performance, the HVS-490 is designed for use in any live environment, including mobile shoots, events, and in-house corporate productions. The switcher provides users with event memory and macro functions, as well as integrated frame synchronizers and multi viewers – making it easy to set up quickly for live performances.

The HANABI HVS-1200, a compact 4K/HD compatible switcher,
builds on the features of the HANABI HVS-490 video switcher and adds 12G-SDI
support as standard. The switcher also utilizes a single
cable for image processing and is configurable as both a 12G-SDI/4K and as a
3G-SDI/HD switcher. In HD mode, the switcher accepts up to 40 inputs, and in 4K
mode it accepts up to 10. In 4K
mode, the switcher provides 2 M/E performance (1 M/E + 1 MELite), and in HD
mode it’s a 6 M/E (2 M/E + 4 MELite) switcher virtually.

introduced at NAB 2019, Variant Systems will showcase the new Envivo Studio to InfoComm attendees. Shown for
the first time at InfoComm, Envivo Studio is an all-in-one live production
