SET Broadcast & Cable Show: FOR-A to Showcase High-Sensitivity Cameras, Switchers, Signal Processors, Multi-Viewers
At the upcoming SET Broadcast & Cable Show, FOR-A Corporation of America will demonstrate a number of its video and audio solutions in Booth F1. This year marks the 22nd SET Broadcast & Cable Show, which will take place in São Paulo, Brazil at the Exhibition Centre Immigrants from August 20-22.
One of the highlights of the FOR-A booth will be the FT-ONE 4K variable frame rate camera. The FT-ONE employs FOR-A’s “FT1-CMOS” high-sensitivity color sensor and has the ability to record up to 900 frames per second. The camera captures images as uncompressed raw data on the system’s internal memory, which has a recording capacity of 9.4 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of full 4K resolution images. Since its introduction last year, the FT-ONE has been used for a variety of high-end sports broadcast and digital cinematography applications, including the championship football game earlier this year in New Orleans, professional boxing, rugby, soccer and ice cross downhill competitions.
Another camera that FOR-A will showcase is the FLOVEL FZ-B1 high-sensitivity HD unit. The newest addition to FLOVEL’s extensive line of high-end HD specialty cameras, the new FZ-B1 has at its core a 2/3-inch CMOS 1.3 megapixel color image sensor. The compact camera records in 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 720p/60p and 720/50p formats and has an unprecedented low-light sensitivity of only 0.01 lux. Superior HD color imagery coupled with low-light sensitivity makes the compact camera ideal for demanding high-resolution applications, such a day/night nature video production.
FOR-A’s HVS-390HS compact, cost-effective video switcher will also be shown. The unit includes 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs and eight outputs (expandable to 24 inputs and 13 outputs), with frame synchronizers for all inputs. The HVS-390HS was first introduced last year, with new capabilities recently announced. The new functionality, referred to as a MINI M/E, is an extension of the aux bus system that allows operators to deploy any aux bus transition with cuts, mixes, or wipes, and display a keyer complete with DVE functions. These features are offered as standard in the HVS-390HS.
FOR-A will also show its newest line of video switchers, the HVS-XT100 and HVX-XT110 HD/SD portable units. Shown for the first time in Latin America, the HVS-XT100 comes with a separate main unit and control panel, while the HVS-XT110 features a compact, integrated design.
The award-winning FA-1010 signal processor will also be in FOR-A’s booth. With 10 video inputs and outputs, the new FA-1010 offers multi-channel routing between sources as well as effective video and audio signal processing for line, relay, reporting, production, editing, and delivery applications. Providing extreme connectivity and functionality, the unit is referred to as THE Processor. Another signal processor that will displayed by FOR-A is the FA-9520 3G/HD/SD dual channel multipurpose unit. The FA-9520 is suited for a variety of applications, including master control, mobile production, post production services and live production.
Other products to be showcased in FOR-A’s booth include the MV-1620HS HD/SD high resolution multi-viewer. The compact (1RU) unit features a customizable layout, audio meter, and title and timer display. The IVS-710HS HD/SD video stabilizer will also be demoed. The unit provides real-time correction of unwanted camera movement and vibrations. FOR-A’s lightweight, compact VTW-330HS HD/SD character generator and FRC-30 HD/SD frame rate converter will be showcased as well.
