The FOR-A Corporation of America, a manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, introduces a new interface that allows the HVS-350HS HD/SD 1.5 M/E digital video switcher to control the Abekas Mira Production Server.

The new interface will allow users to review a list of clips, set in/out points, and control clip playback (play, stop, record, rewind, etc.) from up to four independent video channels through the switcher’s HVS-350U control panel or HVS-35GUI remote control software.

“The new integration allows easy access to four channels of high-quality HD clip stores right from the switcher,” said Pedro Silvestre, FOR-A Corporation’s sales director. FOR-A Corporation is “currently integrating our products with other manufacturers to provide more value to our products,” he said, adding, “This interface with the Abekas Mira server is a step in the right direction, and we’ll be adding other manufacturers shortly.”

Available with eight or four independent HD/SD-SDI digital video I/O channels, each with eight tracks of uncompressed embedded audio, the Mira server records 10-bit digital video at a variety of bit rates. It can record and replay 3x super slow motion HD video and offers instant change between record and play. Other features include a RAID-6/SATA-2 media disk array with hot-swap disks, as well as dual-redundant hot-swap power supplies, in a 3 RU chassis.
