Lyon Video Acquires FOR-A's MV-3240 Multi-Viewers

News Image
FOR-A Corporation of America has announced that Lyon Video, a video broadcasting and production company based in Columbus, Ohio, has purchased 35 of its newly-introduced MV-3240 multi-viewers.

Recently acquired by Live Media Group, Lyon is known for its engineering expertise and large fleet of mobile units which will add reach and depth to LMG's push into the nationwide market. Lyon's new multi-viewers join a full complement of FOR-A signal processors, telestrators and video switchers already aboard its mobile trucks and will be employed immediately for sports, concerts, and entertainment as the industry returns to large-scale live events.

Installation of nine multi-viewers in the first of Lyon's HD-capable expando trucks is already complete, with two more mobile trucks to be ready for events beginning in July. Because the layout of the multi viewers often changes from show to show, Lyon relies on FOR-A's GearLink™ Integrated Control Software, which eliminates the need to change the layout of each multi-viewer individually. With customizable screen layouts and buttons, all nine multi viewers can be preset to the same screen layout with a single touch, delivering a bird's-eye view of workflows and convenient visual control of the multi viewer, video switcher, cameras, routing switcher, clip server, character generator, and other signals.

"The ability to preset screen layouts is a game changer," said Cris Wollett, Chief Engineer of Lyon Video. "The multi-viewers we’d been using were cumbersome and time-consuming, requiring us to change the screen layout separately for each unit. Only FOR-A offers the capability to instantly change the layout of all multi-viewers at once, making it quick and easy to turn around the truck for the next show. We’re thrilled to have them on our trucks in place of what we had before."

"This is a good illustration of FOR-A's approach to engineering breakthroughs," said Satoshi Kanemura, President of FOR-A Corporation of America. "We develop close relationships with our customers, look for their pain points, and put our engineers to work solving these issues. We’re pleased that our compact, versatile MV-3240 and integrated GearLink control software take Lyon’s experience in the field to the next level with the industry's only one-touch solution for changing layouts on multi-viewer displays."

"This kind of innovation is what we've come to expect from FOR-A," said Chad Snyder, President of Live Mobile Group. "We're looking forward to expanding the use of these new multi-viewers and other FOR-A products in our mobile production trucks as we continue to grow. This is just the beginning."
