FOR-A to Showcase a Variety of its Popular Solutions at SET Broadcast & Cable Show

Cypress, CA – At the upcoming SET Broadcast & Cable Show, FOR-A Corporation of America will demonstrate a number of its video and audio solutions in Booth F1. This year marks the 22nd SET Broadcast & Cable Show, which will take place in São Paulo, Brazil at the Exhibition Centre Immigrants from August 20-22.

One of the highlights of the FOR-A booth will be the FT-ONE 4K variable frame rate camera. The FT-ONE employs FOR-A’s “FT1-CMOS” high-sensitivity color sensor and has the ability to record up to 900 frames per second. The camera captures images as uncompressed raw data on the system’s internal memory, which has a recording capacity of 9.4 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of full 4K resolution images. Since its introduction last year, the FT-ONE has been used for a variety of high-end sports broadcast and digital cinematography applications, including the championship football game earlier this year in New Orleans, professional boxing, rugby, soccer and ice cross downhill competitions.

Another camera that FOR-A will showcase is the FLOVEL FZ-B1 high-sensitivity HD unit. The newest addition to FLOVEL’s extensive line of high-end HD specialty cameras, the new FZ-B1 has at its core a 2/3-inch CMOS 1.3 megapixel color image sensor. The compact camera records in 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 720p/60p and 720/50p formats and has an unprecedented low-light sensitivity of only 0.01 lux. Superior HD color imagery coupled with low-light sensitivity makes the compact camera ideal for demanding high-resolution applications, such a day/night nature video production.

FOR-A’s HVS-390HS compact, cost-effective video switcher will also be shown. The unit includes 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs and eight outputs (expandable to 24 inputs and 13 outputs), with frame synchronizers for all inputs. The HVS-390HS was first introduced last year, with new capabilities recently announced. The new functionality, referred to as a MINI M/E, is an extension of the aux bus system that allows operators to deploy any aux bus transition with cuts, mixes, or wipes, and display a keyer complete with DVE functions. These features are offered as standard in the HVS-390HS.

FOR-A will also show its newest line of video switchers, the HVS-XT100 and HVX-XT110 HD/SD portable units. Shown for the first time in Latin America, the HVS-XT100 comes with a separate main unit and control panel, while the HVS-XT110 features a compact, integrated design.

The award-winning FA-1010 signal processor will also be in FOR-A’s booth. With 10 video inputs and outputs, the new FA-1010 offers multi-channel routing between sources as well as effective video and audio signal processing for line, relay, reporting, production, editing, and delivery applications. Providing extreme connectivity and functionality, the unit is referred to as THE Processor. Another signal processor that will displayed by FOR-A is the FA-9520 3G/HD/SD dual channel multipurpose unit. The FA-9520 is suited for a variety of applications, including master control, mobile production, post production services and live production.

Other products to be showcased in FOR-A’s booth include the MV-1620HS HD/SD high resolution multi-viewer. The compact (1RU) unit features a customizable layout, audio meter, and title and timer display. The IVS-710HS HD/SD video stabilizer will also be demoed. The unit provides real-time correction of unwanted camera movement and vibrations. FOR-A’s lightweight, compact VTW-330HS HD/SD character generator and FRC-30 HD/SD frame rate converter will be showcased as well.

“Brazil’s Broadcast & Cable Show is an exciting event for us,” said Mario Rodriguez, FOR-A’s Latin American Sales Manager. “The show attracts key decision makers in television engineering, radio, and telecommunications in Latin America, and is a great chance for FOR-A to show off our new and popular solutions in a region that’s so important to us.”

Belkin Builds on Cyber Security Strategy with the Introduction of New Secure DisplayPort KVM Switch for Federal and Defense Agencies

New KVM Switch Helps Create a More Unified, Intuitive and Secure Work Environment for Organizations Handling Confidential Data on Separate Networks 

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. – July 16, 2013 – Belkin, a trusted leader of technology solutions for cyber security and government agencies, today announced the expansion of its award-winning secure product line with the addition of the Belkin DisplayPort KVM Switch. The new switch offers the ideal solution for federal and defense users who handle sensitive or confidential information and need a seamless, coherent environment working on multiple networks with different security levels.

DisplayPort is increasingly popular with the government sector because it offers high graphics resolution in a non-consumer HDMI format. Unlike HDMI, DisplayPort cables are securely fastened which minimizes down time that results when a loose cable is dislodged. In addition, no licensing fees are required, as with HDMI, and DisplayPort is significantly thinner and smaller than DVI.

While DisplayPort adoption is on the rise, there are security concerns involved with the transfer of information beyond display signals, making data vulnerable and security a challenge. Belkin is the first and only vendor to develop a Secure KVM Switch with support for DisplayPort technology. The switch, which is Common Criteria validated to EAL 4+, includes security mechanisms to protect DisplayPort channels and prevent leakage of information between connected computers and displays. These mechanisms provide isolation even if two connected computers are infected with malicious code attempting to target the KVM.

In addition, users today face a greater demand to monitor a growing amount of data and perform multiple tasks at the same time. Belkin addresses this by making the Secure DisplayPort KVM Switch the first to support up to four monitors on one system. As a result, users can more effectively keep an eye on more data simultaneously for improved intelligence and decision making. 

As with all Belkin Secure KVM products, the DisplayPort KVM Switch is designed to thwart cyber-attacks by reinforcing user desktop security with the most advanced and secure commercially available KVM technology available. Additional Secure DisplayPort KVM Switch features include:

  • Protected DisplayPort channel switching – Security mechanisms protect DisplayPort channels, preventing leakage of information between connected computers and peripherals
  • Full support of all DisplayPort 1.2 resolutions up to 3840×2160
  • Dedicated processors with emulators for every port – Isolated port paths for video, audio, peripherals, and smart card readers prevent data leaks between computers
  • Unidirectional data paths – Optical data diodes prevent peripherals from being used to breach systems
  • Display security – Protected display interface prevents data leakage via the monitor
  • Peripheral management – USB device detection prevents unauthorized peripheral usage
  • Anti-tampering – Internal electrical sensors render unit inoperable if opened

“Belkin works side by side with government users to understand the real challenges associated with cyber security. These insights are factored into the design of the Secure DisplayPort KVM and our strategy to expand on Belkin’s secure product line,” said Luis Artiz, director of product management, Business Division, Belkin International Belkin. “We’re committed to investing in innovative solutions that secure the user computing environment and look forward to continuing to unveil new solutions that address cyber security concerns.” 

Belkin’s DisplayPort KVM Switch will be available August 1, 2013 through the company’s network of authorized channel partners.

Cypress, CA – FOR-A Company Limited, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, announces new features of its compact, cost-effective HVS-390HS video production switcher. First introduced at last year’s NAB Show as a 1 M/E to 2 M/E switcher, FOR-A has added unique capabilities to the unit that have never been seen before in this class of production switcher. The new functionality, referred to as a MINI M/E, is an extension of the aux bus system that allows operators to deploy any aux bus transition with cuts, mixes, or wipes, and display a keyer complete with DVE functions. The MINI M/E is now offered as a standard feature of the HVS-390HS, and brings the power of a virtual 6 M/E switcher in a 2 M/E unit.

The MINI M/E feature of the HVS-390HS can be useful in a variety of applications. For productions where distributing an automatic second language feed is desired, the switcher’s MINI M/E can switch independent mixer outputs, simultaneously displaying second language graphics. In house of worship productions, operators using the HVS-390HS can easily produce graphics or song lyrics on side screens that vary from the main screen visuals. For studio applications, a production team can display different information on the monitors viewed by the audience, such as indicating that it’s time for applause or providing different information, or perform simple on-set monitor positions where transitions with cuts, mixes, wipes, and graphics can contribute to the production workflow. All of these actions can be controlled from an aux bus remote panel or the main work surface.

The MINI M/E can be independently controlled or operated from a master/slave configuration. It can also follow any bus on 1 or 2 M/E, making the switcher easy for a single user. In addition, the MINI M/E can be expanded into a half M/E function, allowing the HVS-390HS to be configured into a 2.5 M/E mixer. The half M/E can also be controlled in a remote location where a traditional A/B bus mixer is used along with up to 4 DSK. With options, the HVS-390HS has the capabilities of up to an 8 M/E switcher.

“The new capabilities of the HVS-390HS offer powerful tools to create a richer audience experience in many scenarios,” explained Jay Shinn, FOR-A Corporation of America’s Northeast Sales Manager. “The MINI M/E features offer cost-effective functionality never seen before in this type of switcher. We’re confident that the HVS-390HS will greatly improve productions for our customers in broadcast, house of worship, education and corporate video.”

The ability to add in up to four additional mix effects is built into the HVS-390HS at no additional cost and with no extra software needed. Additionally, FOR-A is now also offering a new wireless LAN interface for configuration and control from touch screen surfaces, such as an iPad. The switcher is now more affordable than ever, available for $26,500.

Wyrestorm’s Modular MX-PP-POH Delivers a Totally Custom-Built HDBaseT Matrix Solution

With its completely customizable design, RS-232 routing capabilities, integrated Power over HDBaseT and near-limitless selection of input configurations, Wyrestorm’s MX-PP-POH is the company’s most flexible, scalable, fully featured HDBT matrix yet.

Memphis, TN – June 5, 2013Wyrestorm, a global manufacturer that specializes in the design and development of innovative HD distribution products, takes truly custom AV distribution to the next level and new price point with the introduction of the MX-PP-POH Pro Plus Matrix, a totally modular, built-to-order addition to Wyrestorm’s popular Pro-Plus line of HDBaseT™ matrices, that is compatible with all leading control systems. The MX-PP-POH (power over HDBaseT) provides commercial and custom residential system integrators with the utmost in switching and installation flexibility thanks to its choice of eight or 16 fully customizable expansion bays, RS-232 control signal routing, and Power over HDBaseT capabilities—all backed by an extensive nationwide dealer training program to start in August 2013.

Building on the HDBaseT foundation at the heart of Wyrestorm’s Pro-Plus line, the MX-PP-POH supplies HD video, high-resolution audio, RS-232 and IR, as well as low voltage power via a single Cat5e/6 cable (removing the need for power supplies for each display receiving device), making it more convenient than ever before for installers to deliver feature-rich multimedia distribution systems with rock-solid reliability, enhanced flexibility, and the utmost in scalability.

Starting with a clean, 8 module compact chassis that measures only two rack units high or a 16 module chassis at three rack units high, dealers will be able to take advantage of Wyrestorm’s new, intuitive online web widget to configure the MX-PP-POH with a near-limitless combination of both analog and digital transmission cards, custom-tailored for both residential and PRO AV applications. Wyrestorm provides design ideas and concepts so integrators can easily identify configurations to meet various applications – as a boardroom presentation switcher, enhanced HDBT splitter, or a full HD video and audio distribution solution for a large scale entertainment and commercial display systems.

Examples of the numerous modular transmission card configurations include:

• An HDMI input card with HDBT 70m output (with embedded RS232 transmission), a mirror HDMI output, IR transmission, and Power over HDBaseT —the perfect choice for use with AV receivers or activating a slave outputs by using a Wyrestorm extender product. This card provides 16 or 32 active outputs depending on chassis selection.

• A DVI input card, with HDBT 70m output (with embedded RS232 transmission), IR transmission, and Power over HDBaseT—ideal for professional AV applications that don’t require audio distribution.

• An analog audio input card with HDBT 70m output (with RS232 transmission), a mirror HDMI output, IR transmission, and Power over HDBaseT —perfect for adding audio-only devices such as iPod docks, audio zone players, and media servers to your AV distribution system removing the need to run duplicated digital/analog audio products

• A VGA plus stereo audio input card with, supporting resolutions from 640×480 up to WUXGA 1920×1200.

• And non-switching HDMI Pass Thru card with HDBT 70m output (with RS232 transmission), IR transmission, and Power over HDBaseT for use with cascading matrix devices making systems such as 16×32, 16×48. This card will also be used for HD to IP wireless streaming video preview function which is a feature within the new Enado user interface due for release later this year.

Add Wyrestorm’s AMP-001-010 HDBaseT Amplifier for zone amplification and video output, and you have a self-contained, one-brand video and audio distribution solution with full HD capabilities, with EDID management, HDCP compliance and complete control of all connected devices.

Pricing of each unit will be dependent upon the dealer’s custom specifications. In addition, Wyrestorm’s line of non POH Pro Plus matrices, MX0404-PP, MX0606-PP, MX0808-PP and MX0808-PP-AUD, will continue at a new lower price point which will open HDBaseT stability to all dealers & projects regardless of project size or budget.
