The HVS-100 portable video switcher will be one of these products. The switcher features mixed HD/SD input, frame synchronizing, re-sizing engine, 2.5D wipe effects, clip memory, DVE, Chroma keyer and DSK. It also has a built-in web server that can change switcher settings from a tablet or PC.

The Odyssey’s Insight production server will also be on display. This four-channel playout system is designed for studio and OB vans and offers a web interface for control from any device, as well as a range of support wrappers and codecs. A flexible event processor can connect multiple devices and interact with video switchers, routing switchers, CG generators, GPIO connected devices and other studio equipment.

In addition, For-A will show the ClassX 3D graphic generator, which can now be integrated with For-A video switchers, and the LTR-200HS7 LTO-7 multi codec archiving recorder.

For-A will be located at booth 530 during the 2017 GV Expo, which runs from Nov. 28-30.
