Cable 14 purchases a FOR-A Insight Production Server

Cable 14 chooses FOR-A equipment

Local specialty channel Cable 14, from Hamilton, Canada, has purchased an Odyssey Insight Production Server, manufactured by FOR-A. It will be used for pre-recorded openings, closings, and for the insertion of pre-produced segments into programming produced for the Greater Hamilton Area.


Housed in the Central Equipment Room, the Production staff can access the server and its contents from anywhere in the building, using the built-in web-based GUI that comes standard on the Insight Server.


“When evaluating production servers, it was essential for us to find one that was robust, easy to operate, user friendly and easy to get content in and out of”, has stated Bill Custers, Technical & Network Operations Supervisor.


“We have a number of volunteers who come in from the community, producing content of local interest so having a production server that was reliable and straight forward was important”, he adds. “With the Insight we can drop assets into a playlist, have the flexibility to queue up the next asset in the list, or build a loop. That flexibility was key for us and the 1RU size was the perfect size”.


FOR-A Insight features

The Insight Production Server is a four channel playout system designed for studio and mobile truck environments. Insight is a suitable tool for media contribution and general video playout tasks. The system supports up to four SD, HD as well as an optional single 4K channel.


The Insight Server has a full web GUI that allows users to control the server from anywhere and any device. Insight’s processor allows connection of multiple devices and interaction with video switchers, routing switchers, CG generators, GPI I/O connected devices and other studio equipment for a seamless production.
