Advanced AUX- Virtual 6M/E

While the HVS-390HS has a full powered primary Mix Effects (M/E), FOR-A offers the first switcher system to use Advanced AUX technology. Operators and technical staff will appreciate the capabilities of a virtual 6M/E switcher. With Advanced AUX technology any AUX bus can be used like never before… and AUX output can cut, mix, wipe, key and move graphics with a DVE.

A dozen DVE channels

The HVS-390HS has 8 channels of 2.5D and 4 channels of 3D DVE. Twelve channels of DVE means you don’t need to float DVEs as you should have enough for any production need. All twelve channels are included, no extra charge. Some other suppliers, ask you to pay for enough DVEs or only provide 4.

2 Keyers and 2 DSKs

Further proof of the power of these new small mixers is that they come as standard with 2 keyers, 2 DSKs and 4 powerful 2.5D DVE engines. An advanced, high quality Chroma keyer can be assigned to any one of the two M/E Keyers or two Downstream Keyers. The 4 powerful DVE engines, can be assigned to any keyer or used for transitions etc, and with their standard 2.5D ability, allows flexible creativity for the operator to enhance productions.

Animation playout (CG wipe): with picture of CG wipe

The HVS-390HS can store and playout from an internal 4 channel media player. Why not free up your external clip player(s) and let the ‘no extra charge’ internal media player replay those animated bugs or integrate your animations into transition opens and closes. Your wipe transitions will really get noticed as the animation becomes part of youn A/B wipe.

Operation via Web browser

The ability to set up, adjust and operate the HVS-390HS via a Web browser, from a PC, Mac, or tablet device, over Ethernet, is included at ‘no extra charge’.
This also allows easy recalling and editing of macros, key-frame sequences and event memories. The Web browser control also displays thumbnails of stills loaded to still stores. This easy to use software control can be used as at secondary operational positions, or as an AUX control for TD or director.

Powerful outputs! - All at the same time

2.5 M/E switcher

With Advanced AUX plus technology, we provide a virtual 6M/E production switcher. You can even also use AUX bus 7 and 8 as a Half M/E (Program/Preset bus) complete with mix transitions and up to 4 DSK's.

Dual multi-viewer

Two independent multi-viewers are equipped, each capable of displaying 16 windows with safety area marker and audio level meter.
