FOR-A To Showcase NDI®-Compatible Live Video Production Ecosystem

News Image
FOR-A is showcasing a fully NDI®-compatible live video production ecosystem at CABSAT 2023 (stand S1-M10, Dubai World Trade Centre, 16 – 18 May).

The new HVS-190 supports high-bandwidth NDI® and NDI®|HX input and output and marks the continued expansion of the popular HVS switcher series. It is a one M/E version of FOR-A’s flagship HVS-490 video switcher and comes standard with 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI interfaces. The HVS-190 features frame synchronization and processing amplification on all inputs and is available in two models. The HVS-190S, with a control panel separate from the main unit, comes with eight inputs/five outputs, and is expandable to 20 inputs/11 outputs. The HVS-190I is an integrated control panel/main unit video switcher with the same standard I/O configuration as the HVS-190S and is expandable to 16 inputs/9 outputs.

Both HVS-190 models include keyer, chroma keyer, multi viewer, still/clip store, macro, and event memory functions as standard. A simple, browser-based control and setup is also supported for both. The HVS-190 switchers are easily expandable, with additional multi view outputs, increased storage with an added SSD, and optional auxiliary and tally unit(s).

NDI® connectivity is provided via an optional card, the HVS-NIF. Each card provides four inputs/two outputs. Add up to three cards with the HVS-190S and two with the HVS-190I. With the HVS-190 switchers, users can add output from PTZ cameras, webcams, smartphone camera apps, computer content, and other sources and route video/audio from a single switcher to multiple devices. It also provides two-way communication with multiple video, audio, control, or tally systems using only Ethernet cables. SDI playout and IP streaming occur simultaneously, enabling mixed or coordinated broadcasts of both sources.

NDI® connectivity enables packaged solutions to be assembled and operated easily. A typical configuration might be the FOR-A HVS-490 or HVS-190 production switcher, teamed with the MFR-3100EX all-in-one-production center, Odyssey Insight Server and ClassX graphics - all of which have NDI® options for seamless operation.

FOR-A’s software-based live production platform, SOAR-A, boasts an expandable IP-based architecture and supports the conversion and delivery of SD, HD, 4K and NDI® to SMPTE ST 2110 signals. It is compatible with WebRTC and utilizes RIST (Reliable Internet Streaming Transport). The entire SOAR-A workflow enables highly secure REMI production and gateway-free streaming. The SOAR-A system serves content creators looking for a workflow with ultra-low latency, software-based services.

"The MEA market is very important to FOR-A, and we have strong sales and engineering resources in the region," said Mohammed Abu Ziyadeh, regional manager (MEA) at FOR-A. "We have been highly successful not only with our products but through our ability to work with partners and deliver complete systems for broadcasters, universities, and other professional users. CABSAT is a great opportunity for us to show some of our newest products, and to talk about how we can use them as part of a solution to our visitors’ real-world challenges."
