Compact FOR-A Switcher
Extensive Feature Set
A

t NAB, FOR-A will introduce
the HVS-490 live HD/4K-UHD
multiple effects production switcher;
HVS-100TB2 interface; MBP-200TB2
SDI Gateway with Thunderbolt
interface; and FVW-700 HD/4K-UHD
telestrator.
The new HVS-490 production
switcher is designed for use in live
environments. Event memory and
macro functions make it easy to set up
quickly for live performances. Compact
in size, the HVS-490 has integrated
frame synchronisers and multiviewers.
Using multiple control panels, the
system enables several operators to
work on separate tasks.

Using optional input and output
expansion cards, the HVS-490
supports 40 inputs/18 outputs, 36
inputs/20 outputs or 32 inputs/22
outputs, including two-channel HDMI
outputs. In 4K, it allows 10 inputs/
six outputs, nine inputs/six outputs
or eight inputs/seven outputs. It also
has 16 channels of 2.5 DVE as standard
and can be optionally expanded to a
maximum of 32 channels.
The HVS-490 offers features such as
MELite and FLEXaKEY, which allows a
traditional AUX bus to transform into
a functional Mix Effects with cuts, mix,
wipes, keys, and DVE including full
preview. MELite extends the switcher's
2 M/Es to 6 M/E performance.
The four FLEXaKEY keyers provided
are designed for flexible reassignment
to M/E 1, M/E 2, or AUX buses, thus
extending the switcher's performance
beyond that of conventional
MPB-200TB2
switchers. Up to 12 keyers
can be combined.
HVS-490 has a
frame synchroniser

and a process
amplifier at all
inputs, and a
resize engine
is also installed
within
four
video
inputs.
The switcher can
input SD and HD
resolution video
simultaneously. PC images can also be
resized.
The HVS-490 has a built-in
multiviewer that supports three
outputs as standard. Ten or more
layout patterns can be selected for
each output, including a 16-split view.
By using the HDMI 2.0b output at 4K,
a display of up to 48-split is possible
with three outputs.
The HVS-490 includes an extensive
feature set of audio functions. Users
can bring AES audio directly into and
out of the mixer.
With the HVS-100TB2 Thunderbolt2
Expansion Card, a total of four streams
of full HD non-compressed video input

Compact FOR-A
Switcher Extensive Feature Set

and output can be transferred by a
single card to any HVS series switcher
via a single connection.
The MBP-200TB2 SDI Gateway can
convert large amounts of media into
SDI-formatted video through single
Thunderbolt cable, transferring any
range of graphics, including: on-screen
text, RCG, video marking, clip server
playout and more.
Also being introduced are new
tools for FOR-A's next generation HD
telestrator - the FVW-700. The FVW700 supports 4K UHD and 1080p HD.
New to the FVW-700 are pre-formatted
and hand-drawn icons, a highlighted
video marker, and a Wi-Fi interface.
