FOR-A releases the MV-1640IP, its new multiviewer for IP production workflows
FOR-A has announced the release of the new MV-1640IP multiviewer. The new device counts with 32 inputs, half of them IP and half SDI. It also has five monitor outputs, and allows workflows for IP or hybrid production workflows.
The new model is compatible with 10 GbE and 25 GbE environments. It supports the SMPTE ST 2110 standard for IP-based video distribution that is used in broadcast and distribution facilities. It can input 16 streams of SMPTE ST 2110-10/20/30/40 HD video via one port – and by using two SFP+ connectors, it can support the redundant environment of SMPTE ST 2022-7. The MV-1640IP uses NMOS for stream switching.
The MV-1640IP supports up to five monitor outputs and 25 windows, with one 12G/3G/HD-SDI and three 3G/HD-SDI output terminals (that can be used for one 4K or four HD outputs), plus one HDMI output. It also supports 4K-to-2K down-resizing. An integrated layout manager allows custom layouts, and saved layouts can be recalled directly from the unit’s front control panel.
“Video professionals need a reliable multi-viewer that supports an IP-based workflow, but has the familiarity of a multi-viewer from a traditional baseband system,” explained Satoshi Kanemura, President of FOR-A Corporation of America. “The MV-1640IP delivers the important features and intuitive control needed for IP or hybrid production environments.”
