Cypress, CA – At the upcoming CAPER show, taking place October 28-30 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, FOR-Awill showcase its popular video switcher, signal processor and multi-viewer solutions. The company will also demonstrate Fujitsu’s encoding/decoding technology. FOR-A, who is celebrating its 45th company anniversary this month, will be located within its partner SVC’s (Sistemas de Video Comunicación) booths, C10 and C11.

One video switcher that FOR-A will have on hand is its HVS-2000 unit. The flexible, cost-efficient switcher allows up to 48 inputs/18 outputs or 40 inputs/22 outputs. The HVS-2000 features exclusive features unique to other switchers in its class, including MELite™, which allows a traditional AUX bus to transform into a functional M/E with cut, mix, wipe and key control; ONStage™, a newly developed technology designed specifically for staging events where multiple image magnification displays are used; and FLEXaKEY™, 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. The HVS-2000 has been a popular choice among a wide variety of customers since its introduction into the market, including use in houses of worship, corporate facilities, government agencies, broadcasters and educational settings.

Another video switcher that FOR-A will show at CAPER is the HVS-100 portable unit, which boasts exceptional cost performance and includes mixed HD/SD input, frame synchronizing, re-sizing engine, 2.5D wipe effects, DVE, Chroma keyer and DSK. 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. Eight HD/SD SDI inputs, four HD/SD SDI outputs and one HDMI output come standard with the unit.

FOR-A will also hand its FA-505 multi-channel signal processor on hand. Ideal for 4K applications, the five-input, five-output signal processor features up/down/cross/aspect ratio conversion capability on each input. Features of the unit include a powerful synchronizer that includes 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.

As a distributor of Fujitsu’s video transmission solutions, FOR-A will also be showcasing Fujitsu IP-920 encoder/decoder technology. Capable of operating at less than 99ms back-to-back latency, Fujitsu’s encoder/decoder technology is widely used for HD/SD content delivery in broadcast, enterprise and government applications. The IP-920 uses H.264 MPEG-4 AVC technology encoding and features real-time transmission and robust error correction.
