FOR-A Hosts Road Shows in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro

UFM-30FRC HD/SD Frame Rate Converter Makes Brazilian Debut

Fort Lee, New Jersey – FOR-A Company Limited, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, recently displayed several key, new products at two road shows in Brazil. FOR-A hosted the events with two Brazilian-based partners – distributor Tecnovideo and systems integration firm Line Up. The events took place on May 16th in São Paulo and on May 18th in Rio de Janeiro.

“Hosting the road shows was a great opportunity to showcase our most advanced solutions to the Brazilian market,” said Pedro Silvestre, sales director for FOR-A Corporation of America. “FOR-A’s partnerships with LineUp and Tecnovideo has helped to strengthen and expand our business in this important region. We believe both shows were a big success, as exhibiting our latest products with our Brazilian partners enabled us to further connect with our customer base in this area.”

At the road shows, the UFM-30FRC HD/SD Frame Rate Converter was shown for the first time in Brazil. Equipped with up/down/cross converters as standard features, the UFM-30FRC offers a motion compensation processing mode and linear conversion mode to perform optimal conversions.

The company also displayed its LTR-100HS video storage appliance working with its MediaConcierge media management system. The LTR-100HS includes an LTO-5 driveand features HD/SD-SDI input/output, broadcast quality codec, and MXF wrapping and unwrapping. MediaConcierge acts as a ‘concierge,’ managing content; converting between common file and digital video formats, facilitating search, browse, and file delivery; and interfacing to third party media content databases and archives. Also shown was the new MV-42HS HD/SD Multi Viewer, which resizes and display up to 4 inputs of HD-SDI and SD-SDI signals on a single screen. FOR-A also exhibited its FA-9500 3G/HD/SD Multi Purpose Signal Processor. The FA-9500 offers logo insertion capability and supports 3G-SDI, HD/SD-SDI, and analog composite I/O, in addition to its ability to be used as a frame synchronizer, provide up/down/cross/aspect converters, second converter, color corrector, and automatic video optimizer as standard features.

FOR-A’s VFC-7000 HD Variable Frame Rate (Super Slow Motion) camera was shown in both field and in-studio configurations. The VFC-7000 is a compact, lightweight, all-in-one unit, capable of high-speed HD recordings. The slow motion camera offers high-speed play-out and recording in HD at variable frame rates from 24 to 700 fps. It features a high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor and electronic high-speed shutter that can operate as fast as 1/200,000 of a second for filming fast-moving events and subjects without blur. São Paulo–based Disk Films, who is renting the VFC-7000 camera as part of its offerings, was on hand as well.

FOR-A showcased a variety of other products at the events, including the HVS-300 HD/SD 1 M/E video switcher.
