The HVS-490 video switcher

“InfoComm is an important show to FOR-A,” says Ken Truong, President, FOR-A America. “It’s always a great chance for us to connect with dealers, customers, and prospective customers that we may not have had the opportunity to meet with at NAB. FOR-A is looking forward to showcasing some of our popular solutions to InfoComm attendees.”

One focus of FOR-A’s InfoComm booth is its video switchers. The company will demo the HVS-490 and HVS-100 units. The HVS-490 is one of the newest units in FOR-A’s long line of HANABI video switchers. Offering exclusive features, including MELite technology, which extends the switcher’s 2 M/Es to offer 6 M/E performance, the HVS-490 opens the door to more affordable 4K production. The compact HVS-490 production switcher is designed for use in any live environment, including mobile shoots, events, and in-house corporate productions. The switcher provides users with event memory and macro functions, as well as integrated frame synchronizers and multi-viewers — making it easy to set up quickly for live performances. The HVS-100 portable video switcher offers cost performance. Features of the unit include mixed HD/SD input, frame synchronizing, re-sizing engine, a built-in Web server, 2.5D wipe effects, DVE, Chroma keyer, and DSK.

At the show, FOR-A will also demo the ClassX solution of 2D/3D character generation and live motion graphics and playout software integrated with the company’s video switchers. ClassX’s premium graphics suite of solutions is popular with universities, digital signage, live event, and sports production applications. FOR-A is the exclusive distributor of ClassX in North, Central and South America.

FOR-A will also highlight its new partnership with Variant Systems Group in its InfoComm booth. The company recently announced that it’s the exclusive distributor of Variant Systems Group’s Envivo Replay sports and live event replay solution in the U.S. and Canada, along with Central and South Americas.
