FOR-A To Demo Super Slow Motion Camera, HD/SD Multiviewer at CAPER 2012
FOR-A Corporation of America has announced its plans for CAPER 2012. The show, which focuses on the latest innovations in radio, television, cable, cinema, satellite, and multimedia, takes place October 24-26 at Centro Costa Salguero in Buenos Aires, Argentina. FOR-A will display a variety of their popular solutions in Booth C10.
“We’re extremely active in Latin America, and CAPER is a premiere show in this region,” said Pedro Silvestre, sales director, FOR-A Corp. of America. “We’re excited to showcase a selection of our key products and connect with our existing and potential customers in this dynamic marketplace. CAPER is always one of the year’s most important trade shows for FOR-A.”
Among the products that FOR-A will demo will be the award-winning VFC-7000 Super Slow Motion Camera — a lightweight, self-contained unit. The camera offers high-speed play-out and recording in HD at variable frame rates from 24 to 700 fps. It features a high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor and electronic high-speed shutter that can operate as fast as 1/200,000 of a second for filming fast-moving events and subjects without blur.
Also in the FOR-A/CAPER booth will be the FA-9500 3G/HD/SD Multi-Purpose Signal Processor. Packed with features, the FA-9500 provides up/down/cross/aspect converters, second converter, color correction, and automatic video optimizer as standard features. Two channels of HD/SD-SDI and one channel of analog composite video I/O come standard, and it’s expandable up to five channels. With SDI inputs, two channels are synchronously coupled for seamless switching between channels.
Another product on display will be the MV-42HS HD/SD Multi-Viewer. The compact, low-cost unit has a simple user interface and supports up to four asynchronous or mixed HD-SDI and SD-SDI inputs, including 1080i, 1080p, and 720p sources at a variety of frame rates. The MV-42HS has a variety of on-screen features for a customized display environment. FOR-A will also have the MV-1610HS HD/SD/Analog/PC Mixed High Resolution Multi-Viewer on display.
FOR-A’s storage solution, the LTR-100HS Video Archiving Recorder, is another booth highlight. The LTR-100HS is fitted with an LTO-5 drive and offers HD/SD-SDI input/output. The solution makes file ingest workflow more efficient and reduces archive space requirements. Equipped with a high quality MPEG-2 codec, the LTR-100HS includes an MXF wrapper/un-wrapper, so MXF files recorded to LTO-5 tape can be used directly by many NLE systems. LTO-5 tape cartridges can store approximately 50 hours of programming recorded at 50 Mbps.
The UFM-30FRC HD/SD Frame Rate Converter will also be demoed at FOR-A’s booth. Equipped with up/down/cross converters as standard features, the UFM-30FRC offers a motion compensation processing mode and linear converter mode to perform optimal conversions.
Other products to be displayed at CAPER include FOR-A’s HVS-4000 2 M/E – 3 M/E Digital Video Switcher, the MBP-100SX compact MXF Video Clip Server, and the VTW-330HS HD/SD Character Generator.
