Fort Lee, N.J. – FOR-A, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, unveiled the HVS-4000HS multi-format video switcher at the 2010 IBC Show in Amsterdam. Available in 2 M/E or 2.5 M/E models, the latest HANABI Series switcher features support for HD/SD mixed inputs, as well as optional support for 3 Gbps and stereoscopic 3D production.

“Flexibility and functionality were two of the most important considerations when we designed the new HVS-4000HS,? said Mr. Hiro Tanoue, president, FOR-A Corporation of America. “Our new switcher delivers the features that can handle the mixed format productions of today, along with options like 3G and 3D to make sure our customers can handle the production needs of tomorrow.?

With its optional stereo 3D function, the HVS-4000HS can handle the left and right video from a stereo camera as a pair, which allows the operator to switch or invert video, add delays, execute horizontal shifts and transitions, and more. While the switcher supports 1080i, 720p, NTSC, and PAL signals, its optional 3G-SDI input provides support for 1080p signals.

A wide range of standard features includes 3D DVE, six still stores (expandable to eight), four keyers for each M/E (expandable to six), macro function, external device control, video file support, and built-in multi-viewer. The HVS-4000HS includes 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs and 16 outputs, which can be expanded to up to 48 inputs and 24 outputs. Selectable outputs include PGM, PREV, CLEAN, KEY, AUX, and MV. Four utility bus channels can be used for keyer external mask, wipe border, background for M/E bus picture-in-picture, sources for keyers that do not have a dedicated bus, side panel, and local still.

The HVS-4000HS 2 M/E model features a control panel designed for simple, direct operations, which is available in 16 or optional 24-button versions. The 2.5 M/E model emphasizes direct access to preset content, including a macro bus and event recall button for each M/E. Its control panel is available in 24 or 32-button versions. The 4 RU main unit with redundant power supply and production options are the same for both models, so customers can upgrade to 2.5 M/E even after purchasing a 2 M/E model.

The HVS-350HS was introduced at the NAB 2010 convention in April. A “big brother? to the popular and cost-effective HVS-300HS, the HVS-350HS switcher is ideal for mobile production units and small control rooms that have limited space but produce challenging programs, such as sports and other live events.
