Major TV Network Selects FOR-A Processors

News Image
A major television network has selected FOR-A's new processors as part of the recent U.S. Presidential Election Coverage.

The network installed four FA-505 Processors to feed a large video wall display comprised of several monitors in a studio, designed specifically for the U.S. Presidential Election Coverage.

The FA-505 is often used as a general frame sync, but is equipped with essential functions used in video production that allow multi-channel routing – 5 inputs/5 outputs. In this instance, the FA-505s are being used to feed the in-studio monitors of the video wall looking for a 1080p source. As the network facility uses 1080i as their standard format, the monitors need to be converted from 1080i to 1080p (HD to 3G) for better image quality with no degradation.

Built on the features of its sister product, the FA-1010, the FA-505 also includes up/down/cross conversion on each of its 5 inputs as standard, and allows 1080i to 720p / 720p to 1080i conversion. Video payload ID, HDR and conversion between color spaces used for ITU-R BT.709 and ITU-R BT.2020 applications are also supported. In addition, this 5- input, 5-output signal processor supporting 3G/HD/SD-SDI is equipped with various functionalities including, frame synchronizer and outstanding color-correction.

Jay Shinn, FOR-A vice president of the Americas, said: "We are very pleased that our processors have been selected by the network to assist in providing the HD to 3G conversion for their live election coverage. The FA-505 is a complete toolbox for any video production scenario and is ideal for 4K applications as well. We have been told many times over, that the FA-505 has been extremely reliable and very easy to use."
