TORONTO, Canada, January 11, 2010 – TV2GO Inc., an international satellite transmission and video production company, debuted its 31-foot uplink mobile truck in October featuring the FOR-A HVS-300HS compact HD/SD switcher and the MV-410HS HD/SD high-resolution quad multi-viewer.
“In a truck, anything that saves space, weight, and energy for air conditioning is important,? said Lawrence Partington, TV2GO partner.
“Even with its small footprint, the FOR-A HVS-300HS switcher handles any SDI signal, standard or high-def. It has an auto-sensing feature, so we can mix them all up on the same switcher, which is very cool.?

The decision to go with the MV-410HS was based on the high quality TV2GO found with the MV-1610HS HD/SD multi-display processor in its studio.
The TV2GO teleport studio is built around a FOR-A HVS-500HS switcher and includes two FRC-7000 frame rate converters, two FA-9100 HD/SD frame synchronizers.

On the back wall of the new truck, TV2GO installed a 46-inch LCD screen that serves as the display for the FOR-A multi-viewer. “In order to monitor multiple signals, we were sold on the MV-410HS multi-viewer,?
said Partington. “Every time you plug in a camera, monitoring is taken care of. One large screen provides all the monitoring we need and takes the place of a dozen old TV sets.?

When an engineer is initially setting up the truck, he uses the auto-sensing feature of the quad split. “No matter what the signal is, he can verify it’s there,? said Partington. “Also, we love the audio meters. You can tell at a glance if everything is good.? The MV-410HS is a four-channel multi-viewer that supports mixed input of HD-SDI, SD-SDI, and analog composite signals. It offers high-resolution video output using a DVI terminal and supports user-created patterns and video transfer over a LAN. The HVS-300HS multi-format 1 M/E switcher features a compact 1RU main unit, making it an ideal solution for mobile applications.

TV2GO chose FOR-A for its new truck based on years of experience with various other FOR-A products, including the FRC-7000 frame rate converter. “We were waiting for someone to invent frame rate conversion so we could send out North American high-def signals to Europe,?
recalled Partington. “When we saw the FRC-7000 at an NAB, we realized it is what we had been waiting for.?
