Cypress, CA – FOR-A announces plans to exhibit at the upcoming Content and Communications World (CCW) Expo, taking place November 11-12 at the Javits Convention Center in New York. The company spotlight at the event will be on its popular video switchers and signal processors. As Fujitsu’s exclusive North American distributor, FOR-A will also be showcasing Fujitsu encoding and decoding technology at CCW within Booth #816.

“The CCW Expo is one of the biggest media technology events on the East coast, drawing many high-level professionals in broadcast, media and entertainment annually,” said Jay Shinn, Vice President of FOR-A America. “FOR-A always looks forward to showcasing its popular products and getting to better connect with industry professionals at this event.”

One FOR-A booth highlight will be the HVS-2000 video switcher. Ideal for a wide variety of video production users, the HVS-2000 was recently made available with a 3M/E control panel. The cost-efficient HVS-2000 features exclusive functions that set it apart from other switchers in its class and give it the power and flexibility of a 6M/E unit, including MELite™, which allows a traditional AUX bus to transform into a functional M/E with cut, mix, wipe and key control. Another switcher feature is FLEXaKEY™ with preview, which allows operators to tailor their production needs by adding and moving key and DVE layers to traditional M/E resources or to MELite resources.

Another video switcher that FOR-A will showcase is the HVS-100 HD/SD portable unit. Offering exceptional cost performance and diverse features, the HVS-100 includes eight HD/SD SDI inputs, four HD/SD SDI outputs and one HDMI output as standard functions, and offers frame synchronization, re-sizing engines, 2.5D wipe effects, Chroma keyer, DVEs and DSKs. The portable video switcher has a separated main unit and control panel, and was designed specifically for experienced operators with dedicated bus buttons, AUX buttons, a fader controller and direct user buttons for various functions. The switcher offers a built-in Web browser for remote control, as well as a clip memory feature in the still store to support playback of video or animations.

FOR-A’s FA-505 multi-channel signal processor will also be on hand at the show. The five-input, five-output signal processor features up/down/cross/aspect ratio conversion capability on each input. The FA-505 is ideal for 4K applications and includes a powerful synchronizer with frame/line/AVDL modes, video delay line of up to eight frames, full RGB color correction, and 16 channels of embedded audio per channel – with the ability to remap channels from any input to any output.

At the CCW Expo, FOR-A will also showcase Fujitsu’s video transmission technology.

Fujitsu’s real time networking gear uses the highly efficient H.264 video encoding technology to perform live transmission of high fidelity HDTV at low bit-rates. Capable of operating at less than 99ms back-to-back latency and featuring robust error correction, Fujitsu’s encoder/decoder technology is widely used for HD/SD content delivery in broadcast, enterprise and government applications.
