September 7, 2015

Cypress, CA, September 7, 2015 – FOR-A announces that its newest video production switcher, the HVS-2000, recently began shipping and is being delivered to a diverse customer roster. The switcher was designed based on significant customer feedback, and includes groundbreaking technologies that set it apart from other switchers in its class. The HVS-2000 made its U.S. debut at the NAB Show earlier this year, and users of the HVS-2000 include houses of worship, corporate facilities, government agencies, broadcasters, and in educational settings.

One area that FOR-A’s HVS-2000 has already proven to be a popular choice is in houses of worship. Churches who have purchased the switcher include California-based Valley Baptist Church, Frazer United Methodist Church in Alabama, and California’s High Desert Church.

Many video production services companies are also choosing to add the value-rich HVS-2000 to their inventory. Georgia-based Custom Media Solutions, who specializes in high-quality live and post production services, has purchased a HVS-2000 switcher. Production house and equipment rental company Media Mania, located in Abu Dhabi, is another new owner of the HVS-2000 unit. Audio and video systems designer and integrator Technical Innovation, headquartered in Atlanta, is also a new HVS-2000 customer. Austin, Texas-based Omega Broadcast Group, a professional video sales, rentals, and services company, has also purchased the flexible, cost efficient switcher.

“The HVS-2000 offers numerous features that greatly benefit our customers, including its virtual M/E’s, which allow a regular AUX bus to be a fully functional M/E with cuts, mixes, wipes, and keys, all with preview. Its Power Macro feature allows operators to create up to 100 events, and the switcher offers four multi-viewers with up to 16 inputs per screen,” said David Fry, Vice President of Omega Broadcast Group.

NextVR, who specializes in the capture and delivery of live and on-demand virtual reality experiences, is another user of the HVS-2000 video switcher. Recently the company brought live streaming virtual reality to the 2015 U.S. Open golf tournament using the HVS-2000 video switcher’s MELite™ capability, which allowed NextVR to have the full functionality of a 6 M/E switcher.

Several Latin American customers have also purchased the HVS-2000 video switcher, including Colombian public television station Telepacifico, who recently ordered two units. FOX Sports Colombia is another customer of the new HVS-2000 unit. Brazilian companies Multivideo and Casablanca have each also ordered two HVS-2000 switchers.

The FOR-A switcher is also proving to be a popular choice among European broadcasters. New users of the HVS-2000 include Szolnok TV in Hungary and Media Burst in Portugal.

FOR-A’s HVS-2000 can be used for SD, HD, 3G and 4K productions, and allows up to 48 inputs/18 outputs or 40 inputs/22 outputs (optional). The versatile, cost efficient HVS-2000 offers unique features that allow operators to have greater creativity in their switching, such as its ONStage™ function specifically designed for staging events and its FLEXaKEY™ function, which allows users to add, move, and multiply key and DVE layers to traditional M/E or MELite resources.
