A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor



Fort Lee, N.J., March 22, 2010 – FOR-A, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, will introduce the VTW-330HS HD/SD Character Generator and LTG-50HS HD/SD Logo/Title Generator at the 2010 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nev., April 12-15 (Booth C5219).

With its lightweight, compact design, the VTW-330HS is a portable, affordable Character Generator that is the perfect addition for users of FOR-A’s HVS-300HS switcher or any of FOR-A’s Hanabi line of switchers. The LTG-50HS is a high-performance character generator that can superimpose camera titles, date and time, logos, and graphics on HD/SD-SDI video signals.


“Built to perform and packed with features in a vibration-resistant 1 RU case, the VTW-330HS is an ideal CG for portable production systems and a great addition for those mobile event production application systems,? said Hiro Tanoue, president, FOR-A Corporation of America. “Our GenCG software makes it easy to produce multi-layer graphics using original artwork or templates.?

The GenCG software included with the VTW-330HS provides an intuitive easy to use user interface. Images can be imported from Adobe Photoshop and other programs to create multi-layer graphics, plus still images can be captured from live HD/SD video for graphics as well. An auto-preview function allows the operator to instantly check the image over live video, while a thumbnail or list display allows confirmation of on-air and upcoming graphics.
