Multi-format routing switchers that support 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, ASI, and AES signals. FOR-A features five models, each with a different number of inputs and outputs. Optimal for small- and medium-scale systems and despite their compact cabinet size, these models inherit various, proven MFR-5000 Series functions such as the interface function for multi-link synced operation and tally and automatic source name tracking connections with peripheral devices (video switchers and multi-viewers).
5 models to choose from in accordance with the number of inputs and outputs
FOR-A offers five models to choose from that allow you to accommodate your system input/output requirements, scale and applications.
|Model||SDI, ASI supporting model||AES supporting model|
|Size||2 U||2 U||2 U||1 U||1 U|
|Redundant AC||Option||Option||Option||Option *1||—|
|Hot-swap AC supply||Supported
- 1: One AC power supply inlet is provided (internal wiring)
3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI and ASI input and output support provide automatic signal recognition, allowing you to perform your operation irregardless of the signal type. AES signal supporting model MFR-1616A is also provided.
Aside from ordinary crosspoint switching, supports various crosspoint control formats/functions
- Salvo function: Button assigning type, Main unit storage type
- Take operation: Mode-switching Take button, Always Take button
- Link function
- Level operation
- Chop function
- Incorrect operation deterrence:
Inhibition: Crosspoint, Source, Destination
Lock: Lock Other, Lock All, Lock Local
All models come equipped with a built-in Web server, enabling external control via browser.
System construction with FOR-A video switchers and multi-viewers
System proposals that include FOR-A video switchers and multi-viewers and third-party manufacturer products (protocols: TSL, HARRIS).
SNMP remote monitoring support
All models support SNMP remote monitoring, for integration into an SNMP monitoring system. You can monitor various function states such as crosspoint errors, presence of SDI signal input/output, as well as power source, fan and CPU states.
4K Capablity (SDI, ASI supporting model)
Capable of 4K signal switching with four 3G-SDI inputs
Various integrated redundancy technologies and functions enhance core routing switcher capability.
- Redundant CPU board MFR-SRCPU (option): A secondary CPU board constantly monitors and immediately switches primary board operation, when trouble occurs, to the secondary board to continue functions with no downtime.
- Redundant power source MFR-SRPS (option): Dual power units allow flexible response to power unit and power supply trouble.
Remote Control Units
We offer several types or remote control unit to suit your application. The number of units that can be connected is a maximum of 128, including the main unit. This lets you build a flexible control environment by the way you partition the matrix and make operation level settings. Please refer to MFR-RU series page for the lineup and details.
