FOR-A expands M/E switcher range with HVS-100 Express
FOR-A is to show an expansion of its 1 M/E HVS-100 video switcher series at the 2017 NAB Show (April 22 - 27 in Las Vegas).
HVS-100 Express is controlled via any tablet, handheld or laptop type device with a web browser as opposed to a 'hard' control panel.
The HVS-100 is suitable for use in live events, sports, houses of worship and for corporate video production. Any computer device with a web browser can control the HVS-100 Express switcher. HVS-100 Express accepts simultaneous SD and HD inputs and supports 3G and 4K production.
The HVS-100 Express includes frame synchronisation on all inputs; four full function keyers, each with full function DVE; a built-in multi-viewer with 20 display layouts, a re-sizing engine, 2.5D wipe effects, embedded audio, and a chroma keyer. It has a clip memory feature within the still store that supports playback of video or animations.
The HVS-100 Express accepts HVS-100TB2 Thunderbolt 2 I/O expansion cards, which allows users to transfer video content with a single cable through computers and interface with other devices, such as character generators, virtual studios and/or file-based/IP products. One cable allows transmission of 4 HD or 1 4K (UHD) signal lines.
