Portability and Performance of New FOR-A XT Series Switchers Gains Attention of Schools, Churches, Production Co’s and Major Broadcasters

Cypress, CA – Since its introduction into the market last year, FOR-A’s HVS-XT video production switcher series has proven a popular fit for a wide range of applications. Current customers of FOR-A XT Series switchers include: schools, houses of worship, production companies and major broadcasting networks.

The HVS-XT100 comes with a separate main unit and control panel, while the HVS-XT110 features a compact, integrated design. Both units include: mixed HD/SD input, frame synchronization, multi-viewer capability, re-sizing engine, 2.5D wipe effects, DVE and keyer with chroma key. Two freely assignable Keyers and DSKs channels also come standard. A built-in Web server allows users to adjust settings from a PC or a tablet.

Some of the new XT users are existing FOR-A customers looking to capitalize on the portability and performance of these new switchers. Arizona-based Sun Valley Community Church began using a FOR-A HVS-300HS switcher three years ago for its transition to HD production. The church has three locations, and uses the HVS-300HS in its original campus in Gilbert, AZ. When the time came to select a switcher for one of their newer campuses, the church had FOR-A’s products in top-of-mind. Sun Valley selected a FOR-A HVS-XT100 and has been successfully using it since last September.

“We were very happy with the performance of our FOR-A HVS-300HS switcher, so it was a simple choice to stay in the FOR-A family and purchase another one of their units for our newer location,” said Greg Gardner, Sun Valley’s Video Technical Director. “We went with the HVS XT-100 because of its new features, particularly the ability to assign one of the keys to any of the aux channels and reposition and resize the key as desired. I’ve also found its Web browser capabilities to be extremely useful in our productions.”

FOR-A’s HVS-XT series is also being used for higher learning. A computer science institute at the University of California, Berkeley has been relying on the HVS-XT100 since late last summer for production of workshops and lectures, which are streamed and archived online.

“I appreciate the ease of use that the HVS-XT100 affords,” said Omied Far, UC Berkeley’s switcher operator. “I’ve quickly learned the ins and outs of the switcher, and it helps me to provide smooth, live video to viewers around the world.”

Broadcast equipment rental and production service company Clark Media has been utilizing XT series switchers to provide its corporate, video production company, and broadcast network customers with custom designed solutions. The Bethlehem, PA-based company recently purchased three HVS-XT100 switchers and one HVS-XT110 unit. Dedicated to providing the top technology to its customers, Clark Media plans to rent the FOR-A switchers out in flypacks.

California-based RBL Engineering is one of many video production companies that count on the FOR-A HVS-XT switcher. Part of RBL Engineering’s business is corporate AV event production. The company has been relying on the HVS-XT110 for its multi-camera productions since last fall, and they recently purchased another HVS-XT110 switcher for upcoming projects.

“Portability was a key consideration for us in choosing this switcher,” said company president Bob Bolling. “The size of the HVS-XT110 was a major plus, as we need to be able to easily transport the unit. The HVS-XT110 is the only switcher in its price range that enables dissolve for screen switch, and we appreciate being able to have one switcher control eight outputs with different sources. Its 1080p upgradeable option was also a big perk, as we were looking for a future-proof switcher.”

RBL Engineering recently used the HVS-XT110 for camera switching at a keynote to an audience of 5,000 in San Jose, CA. The RBL Engineering team also took the HVS-XT110 on a plane to Hong Kong to provide I-MAG support and live streaming.

FOR-A’s Latin American customers continue to rely on its technology with use of XT Series switchers, particularly to benefit their live production environments. Brazilian video services provider Casablanca Online, Argentina’s TyC Sports, and Mexico-based mass multimedia company Televisa are all users of HVS-XT switchers.

Lightware Bolsters Support of HDBaseT: Will Demonstrate at INFOCOMM 2014

Lightware Visual Engineering has furthered its support of HDBaseT with its HDBaseT-enabled 65×65 and 80×80 modular matrix switchers and the new UMX-TPS product family, featuring HDBaseT extenders. Live working demos of the entire product line will be shown in the Lightware booth at InfoComm 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 14-20.

The HDBaseT connectivity standard for whole-home and commercial distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content has become “increasingly popular and is an exciting step forward for the industry,” says Drew Taylor, director of sales and applications at Lightware U.S.A., the US distributor for Budapest-based Lightware Visual Engineering products. “HDBaseT is playing an important role in the capabilities of Lightware’s growing product range.”

HDBaseT’s 5Play feature set, which delivers uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power and control signals over a single CAT5e/6 cable, makes it ideal for commercial integration, Taylor says. “By supporting HDBaseT Lightware is responding to needs from the integration space for remote power and the ability to extend RS232 and Ethernet from the matrix to all end points. Our UMX transmitters also can support any connection type.”

The new UMX-TPS product line includes HDBaseT extenders with wall and floor plate models. Targeted to environments such as small boardrooms and classrooms, these devices transmit universal video at resolutions up to 4K, audio, and control up to 180 meters over one CAT cable. The UMX-TPS-TX140 transmission unit is compatible with both Lightware’s HDBaseT extenders and matrix switchers.

Lightware’s own Hybrid architecture is an equivalent of HDBaseT technology delivering video, audio, Ethernet, IR, RS232 and power over a single CAT cable.

“Where Lightware separates itself from the competition is with its 65×65 and 80×80 matrix switchers, which offer Hybrid architecture with HDMI local inputs and outputs mixed with TPS boards,” says Taylor. “No other company provides that kind of solution. And Lightware switchers support 4K today – none of our competitors are shipping products with 4K capabilities yet.”

About Lightware U.S.A.

Lightware U.S.A. is the US distributor of professional AV products manufactured by Lightware Visual Engineering in Budapest, Hungary. For more information on these products, visit www.lightwareUSA.com.

Jesse French Wins the Chance To Convert To Prism Sound

Delicious Audio subscriber Jesse French is now the proud owner of a Prism Sound Titan audio interface after taking part in a competition that ran in a recent edition of the online newsletter ((http://audio.thedelimagazine.com/).

“I wanted to upgrade my audio interface and when I saw the competition I realised this was the perfect opportunity,” Jesse French says. “I’ve researched the company’s products and I’m very excited about winning a Titan.”

Internationally acclaimed company Prism Sound specialises in manufacturing high-quality professional digital audio equipment for the broadcast, film, music production and telecommunications sectors. The company’s product range includes the award-winning ADA-8XR precision 8-channel converter unit, which is regularly used for music and film soundtrack projects by clients such as EMI Abbey Road, BBC, Sony, Lucasfilm and Walt Disney.

Prism Sound’s family of audio interfaces includes Orpheus, Lyra (I and II), Atlas and Titan, which was launched to huge critical acclaim at the AES Convention in New York in October 2013. This multi-channel interface offers recording professionals ultimate quality analogue and digital I/O for Mac or Windows PC at sample rates up to 192kHz via a simple USB interface. Titan has eight analogue inputs, eight analogue outputs and S/PDIF and TOSLINK optical digital I/O ports. The optical ports can also be used for ADAT, giving Titan a maximum capability of 18 concurrent input and output channels plus dual stereo headphones. The unit also features Prism Sound’s new MDIO interface miniature expansion slot, which can be used to expand its connectivity, for example by adding a direct connection to Pro Tools|HDX systems.

For Jesse French, the opportunity to own a Prism Sound audio interface couldn’t come at a better time as he is soon to graduate from Hampshire College in Massachusetts where he has been studying music performance and production.

“I am currently working on my thesis, which is on alternative ways to distribute music online,” he explains. “I also play in a band – Young Tricksters (http://youngtricksters.bandcamp.com/) – and I plan on continuing to play out and record after a graduate.”

Prior to acquiring his Titan, Jesse was using a low end 8-channel interface and running Logic. The ability to record 16 channels means that he can now upgrade his recording set up.

“When I heard I’d won the competition, it took a while to sink in,” he says. “I didn’t really believe it until the unit arrived and now I’m really excited to own it and want to say a big thank you to everyone at Prism Sound and Delicious Audio who made this possible.”

HARMAN’s Studer Vista X Console Star of the Show at KOBA 2014

SEOUL, South Korea – At KOBA 2014, HARMAN’s Studer showcased a broad selection of its latest products for broadcast applications, including the flagship Vista X digital console with the new Studer Infinity Processing Engine, additional Vista Series models, the compact, cost-effective OnAir broadcast consoles and more. KOBA (the Korea International Broadcast, Audio and Lighting Equipment Show) is South Korea’s premier showcase for the global broadcasting industry.

Studer exhibited with HARMAN’s South Korea distributor Dongyang Digital Co., Ltd. at KOBA 2014 at the COEX Exhibition Center, Seoul, South Korea, Booth C210 (May 20 – 23, 2014).

“At KOBA 2014, attendees had a unique opportunity to experience the new Vista X,” said Myoung-Ho Seo, Director of Technical Sales for Dongyang Digital. “It is a remarkable advancement in large-scale broadcast console technology that gives broadcast professionals far greater mixing and production capabilities than ever before—and by a wide margin.”

At the heart of the Vista X is the Studer Infinity processing engine, which uses CPU-based processors to provide huge numbers of DSP channels for large-scale, high-resolution audio processing and mixing. Thanks to the Infinity core, this is the first time more than 800 audio channels have been processed in a single CPU-based board. The Vista X includes 12 A-Link high-capacity fiber digital audio interfaces, to provide more than 5,000 inputs and outputs.

The Vista X shares many features with the Vista 5 M3 and Vista 1 consoles that were featured at KOBA, including the company’s patented Vistonics™ color touchscreen interface, FaderGlow™ enabling faders to be color-coded according to function, flexible input routing and many additional features that make Studer Vista consoles the most powerful and versatile in the industry.

ESS Audio demonstrated the new features of the much-anticipated console to its customer base, and at the same time staged an open day for the Vi3000, which coincided with the European premiere of JBL Professional’s new VTX V20 loudspeakers and included two days of training. The event was supported by Oskar Tarczynski (from ESS Audio) and Ed Jackson (from HARMAN Professional).

The Soundcraft Vi3000 boasts many new attributes. In addition to the much requested access to Universal Audio’s plug-ins (via the new Soundcraft® Realtime Rack plug-in processing engine – which also integrates with the rest of the Vi Series consoles), the console also provides an analogue infrastructure via the I/Os on the back and has built-in MADI and Dante, as well as an upgraded SpiderCore™ DSP and new ‘3D’ Vistonics graphics.

In addition to the Dante/MADI record feed outputs, the console provides MIDI, USB, Ethernet, DVI out, redundant power supply and other connections.

According to W Sound’s Mariusz Węgiełek, “The Soundcraft Vi3000 is the ideal solution for medium-sized touring companies such as ours. The capability of the board, the price of the controller and additional peripherals like the stage rack or expansion cards, make it impossible to look at any alternatives.”

“The immediate driver for the purchase was to acquire a console that would meet most of the riders from the middle range of touring artists—and after almost a month of use, it has been a big hit,” Węgiełek continued. “The response from our sound engineers could not be more positive, and our Vi3000 is working almost every day, earning us money.”
