NAB 2014: FOR-A Continues to Focus on 4K

4K booth highlights include an updated FT-ONE camera, new extraction system, multi viewers, virtual studio system and up converter

Cypress, CA – At next month’s NAB 2014 Show, FOR-A Corporation of America will introduce several new 4K products and showcase a wide range of its popular solutions for the professional video and broadcast industries. Aligning with its NAB theme, “FOR-A for a 4K future,” the company’s primary focus will be on demonstrating cost-effective products for every stage of the 4K workflow – from capturing, processing, switching, and viewing, to recording stunning 4K images. FOR-A will exhibit in Booth C5117 at the show, which runs April 7-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Full 4K Super Slow-Motion Camera & Extraction System

A main highlight of FOR-A’s NAB booth will be the newest version of its FT-ONE 4K super slow motion camera. Capable of storing 9.4 seconds of full 4K resolution images at 900 frames per second, the latest version of the camera features fiber I/O connections built into the unit to make system configuration and setup easier, particularly when the production calls for the camera to be used a far distance away from the base station.

FOR-A’s ZE-ONE 4K zoom extraction system will make its NAB introduction. Featuring an intuitive touch-screen interface, the unit allows FT-ONE users to frame and extract specified 4K image areas. FOR-A will be showing live demos of the ZE-ONE in action in its booth.

Multi Viewers

Other products to be debuted by FOR-A at the show include the MV-4200, MV-42HSA and MV-1620HSA multi viewers. The MV-4200 is a compact, 2 RU unit multi viewer that accepts 4K signals, and is capable of handling up to 68 inputs and 8 outputs.

The new MV-42HSA and MV-1620HSA multi viewers include 3G Level A/B support and 4K to HD down-converted output. The MV-1620HSA accepts up to 16 channels of mixed 3G/HD/SD-SDI/analog composite signals for monitoring on up to two screens, and can also be cascaded with other units to display up to 64 sources simultaneously.

Ultra Resolution Up Converter

New for NAB is FOR-A’s URC-4000 super resolution 4K up converter. The unit provides powerful up-conversion and turns HD video into 4K in real time using original I/P and resolution conversion technology developed by FOR-A.

Graphics

FOR-A will also be debuting VRCAM3, a sensor-less virtual studio system that uses 4K chroma keying technology to provide stunning picture quality. The versatile VRCAM3 links computer graphics to camera motion simply by connecting it to a 4K camera. Using extracted 4K image areas, the Brainstorm rendering engine produces HD output in real time.

Also to debut at NAB is FOR-A’s VTW-350HS HD/SD character generator. The compact, affordable unit provides a rich array of text/graphic functions, more than 260 transitions, and template control, making it an ideal choice for live applications.

Video Switchers

The HVS-390HS HD/SD 1-2.5 M/E video switcher will also be displayed. The versatile switcher offers a dozen DVE channels. Featuring advanced AUX technology, the HVS-390HS has the capability to be a virtual 6 M/E unit.

FOR-A will also show its HVS-XT series of portable video switchers. The HVS-XT100 comes with a separate main unit and control panel, while the HVS-XT110 features a compact, integrated design.

Signal Processor

Following in the footsteps of FOR-A’s award winning FA-1010 signal processor, a new, smaller version of the multi channel signal processor will debut at this year’s show, the FA-505. The 5-input, 5-ouput signal processor features up/down/cross conversion capability on each input.

The company will be showing the FA-10RU, FA-AUX30, and FA-10DCCRU remote control units for the FA-1010 signal processor. Making its first NAB introduction, the FA-10DCCRU is a dedicated remote control unit for color correction.

FOR-A’s FRC Premiere Pro export plug-in video format converter software for Adobe Premiere Pro CC/CS6 Windows will also make its debut.

File-based Products

FOR-A will also demonstrate filebased products, including a new addition to the LTR LTO-based archive recorder series, the LTR-200HS. The unit supports new LTO-6 tape technology and Avid DNX-HD. It features HD/SD-SDI input/output, broadcast quality codec, and MXF wrapping and unwrapping.

Also to debut at NAB is the new LTS-60 media archiving server for LTO-6 drives. The LTS-60 is an ideal small-scale archiving and backup solution that supports 4K archiving.

Ultra Sensitivity Camera

FOR-A will be showing off a new camera from its group company, Flovel. The FZ-B3 ultra high sensitivity HD digital camera captures colorful images in a moonlight environment, and is a 3 CMOS-type version of Flovel’s popular FZ-B1 ultra high sensitivity camera.

IP Encoder/Decoder Solutions

FOR-A will also display Fujitsu’s high-performance IP-920, IP-9500, and IP-9610 encoder/decoder solutions in its booth. The encoder/decoder series uses advanced MPEG-4 AVC technology encoding, known as H.264, to perform real-time transmission of HDTV at low bit rates over DVB and broadband IT networks, and is capable of operating at less than 99ms back-to-back latency. FOR-A will have a 4K display of Fujitsu solutions using two IP-9500 video encoders.

Scheduled for an official debut in 2015, FOR-A will also show Fujitsu HEVC/H.265 compatible IP series technology currently in development.
