The switcher has options that are very suitable for large products, so it was selected as part of the truck. The product has been wired for the production of 8 HD or 6 4K cameras.
Cubic Media Production, a broadcasting and production company based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, has fixed its latest production tool to the For-A HVS-490 digital video switcher. The truck has been booked for a variety of high-profile projects, from multi-camera production of professional football matches to reporting on Abu Dhabi TV’s historic UAE Mars Rover last month.
Last summer, the UNIT2 4K truck was installed on the chassis of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. It is a compact and efficient mobile device that can usually support eight high-definition cameras or six 4K cameras.
Feras Hamdan, managing partner and director of operations at Cubic Media Production, said the HVS-490 is very suitable for new trucks because it has the features and options that large switchers usually have. UNIT2 4K also uses all three multi-screen outputs of the switcher.
In addition to HVS-490, UNIT2 4K also includes two FA-505 and three FA-9600 multi-channel signal processors, which are mainly used to convert external signal sources to 4K during the production process. However, these processors can also be used to synchronize input, embed and de-embed audio, provide color correction, and down-convert material from 4K to HD or HD to SD. Other For-A gears installed include MFR-3000 and MFR-3232 routing switches.
Speaking of this development, Feras Hamdan said: “We believe their products will be used for our live broadcast and their support in the UAE. Before and after the purchase, we obtained excellent technology And operational support, which gives us full confidence in For-A in most broadcast chains."
For-A Systems Engineering Manager Mohammed Abu Ziyadeh added: “Unless your company is reliable and can provide high-quality work, you will not be selected for real-time coverage of major projects such as the Mars Rover. Cubic Production continues to trust For- A products because they are reliable, reasonably priced, and have features suitable for HD and 4K workflows."
With the integrated frame synchronizer and multi-viewer, HVS-490 reduces the number of equipment required for live production. Through the event memory and macro function, you can easily and quickly set up the switcher for live performances, and support multiple control panels at the same time, allowing multiple operators to engage in individual tasks. MELite technology eliminates the need to use multiple switchers in the case of multi-display segmentation, and expands the switcher's 2 M/E performance to 6 M/E performance. When equipped with an optional I/O expansion card, HVS-490 supports 40 inputs / 18 outputs, 36 inputs / 20 outputs or 32 inputs / 22 outputs, including two-channel HDMI output. In addition, For-A's FLEXaKEY allows the traditional AUX bus to be transformed into functional mixing effects through cutting, mixing, wipe, keying and DVE (including full preview).
