FOR-A will showcase its new NFR-6100 routing switcher and more at NAB Show 2020
With expansive product lines supporting 4K, 12G, HDR, and IP workflows, FOR-A Corporation of America will offer a “World of Possibilities” to attendees at the 2020 NAB Show (Booth C5016), which runs April 19-22 in Las Vegas, Nev. The theme will carry across five distinct areas of FOR-A’s booth – video system integration, 12G-SDI solutions, signal processing, IP solutions, and high-speed cameras.
The new MFR-6100 routing switcher, built to support 12G-SDI infrastructures, will make its NAB Debut. It provides single-cable transfer of 4K video for less complex cabling. The MFR-6100 also includes multi-format I/O support, auto signal detection, and SNMP monitoring support. Users can add up to 16 I/O cards (nine channels per card) to configure a matrix up to 144×144.
More products that will be showcase includes the frame rate converter FRC-9100, which supports 3G, HD, and SD content; the FA-9600 multi-purpose signal processor, which will be utilized for the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games; or the new MV-1640IP multi viewer, that supports up to 16 IP inputs (SMPTE ST2110-10/20/30 and ST2022-7) in HD or four inputs in 4K.
At NAB, FOR-A will also provide a technology demonstration of REMI, an IP-based remote integration system. The compact audio, video, and data transmission solution supports up to four SDI, 16-channel AES I/O, and optional storage for recording and playout. FOR-A’s IP roadmap also includes its HVS-6000/6000M 4K/HD HANABI video switcher, which allows IP interfaces to be mounted on all I/O slots and supports up to 80 inputs for future 8K production.
High frame rate cameras and image correctors for broadcasters, OB production trucks, and sports and live venue productions will also be demonstrated on the NAB show floor. The FT-ONE-SS4K, for example, shoots up to 1000 fps in 4K, offers simultaneous record and playback with internal memory, and features independent live output.
Additionally, FOR-A will demonstrate efficient HD integration with third-party graphics, replay systems, and production servers, including partner products such as the ODYSSEY Insight video server, ClassX content creation and graphics playout solution, Variant Systems Group’s Envivo Replay sports and live event replay solution, and InSync’s frame synchronizer, frame rate converter, and up/down converters.
