FOR-A To Showcase Video Switchers At WFX
FOR-A will showcase its lineup of video switchers at the upcoming Worship Facilities Conference and Expo (WFX), which takes place Nov. 18-19 at the Music City Center in Nashville. Popular with many houses of worship, FOR-A’s HVS-2000, HVS-100HS, and HVS-390HS units will be displayed at WFX within booth 118.
Debuting in the U.S. at NAB this year, the HVS-2000 has become a popular choice for houses of worship. The switcher supports SD, HD, 3G and 4K applications, up to 48 inputs/18 outputs or 40 inputs/22 outputs, and features exclusive functions that allow operators to enhance their power and creativity in video switching.
One useful HVS-2000 feature is ONStage, which was designed specifically for staging events where multiple image magnification displays are used. The switcher mode allows operators to view mix, wipe, key and DVE changes under full preview control connected directly to the lever arm transition area.
Other exclusive features of the unit include MELite, which allows a traditional aux bus to transform into functional mix effects with cuts, mix, wipes, keys, and DVE including full preview, and FLEXaKEY, which allows operators to tailor their production needs by adding, moving, and multiplying key and DVE layers to traditional M/E or MELite resources.
Another video switcher to be shown by FOR-A is the HVS-100HS portable video switcher. The unit offers a wide range of functions, including mixed HD/SD input, frame synchronization, multi-viewer capability, re-sizing engine, 2.5D wipe effects and DVE and keyer with chroma key.
Also to be showcased at WFX is the versatile HVS-390HS video switcher, which includes 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs and eight outputs (expandable to 24 inputs and 13 outputs), with frame synchronizers for all inputs. Featuring advanced AUX technology and unique functionality, the HVS-390HS has the capability of a 6 M/E unit.
