Engineering Service, Inc.
FOR-A is heading to IBC 2018 with a large focus on the theme of 'Gateway to IP'. The company will demonstrate the benefits of a combined 12G/IP approach, and feature a collection of product demos and debuts.
Making its IBC debut is the latest solution in FOR-A's USF-Series of universal system frames, the USF-106UDC-12G 4K up/down converter. The unit offers Interlace/Progressive and up/down conversion for HD to 4K. The USF-106UDC-12G supports conversion between the following 4K signal formats: 12G-SDI/quad link 3G-SDI, 3G-SDI Level A/B, 2SI/SQD and ITU-R BT.2020/709.
The MBP-1000VS 12G-SDI/IP multi-channel video server will also be shown in Europe for the first time. The new server is ideal for 4K studio environments, offering multi-input/output 4K and HD support and ingest, playout and 4K recording functionality. 4K XAVC™ and MPEG-2 codecs are available with the MBP-1000VS, which allows for a direct interface to the NLE system via Ethernet. FOR-A is offering a range of MBP-1000VS interfaces for 12G-SDI or video over IP transmission, including 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, and SFP+, to accommodate varying user needs for inputs/outputs and size of internal storage (SSD).
The new IF4K-DNC is a 12G-SDI supporting frame synchroniser and colour corrector. The cost-effective processor, equipped with a 4K (UHD) to HD down converter, enables simultaneous 12G and HD output. The IF4K-DNC supports HDMI input/output in the 4K/HD format, so it can also be used as a frame synchroniser for HDMI to SDI conversion and SDI to HDMI converter for 4K/HD monitoring. The IF4K-DNC has HLG to SDR conversion functionality and supports wide colour gamut as well as 12G and HD output. Because of the functionality, simultaneous output of 12G-SDI HLG/ITU-R BT.2020 and HD-SDI SDR/ITU-R BT.709 is enabled. The IF4K-DNC also supports AES and analog audio output and is suitable for audio monitoring.
FOR-A will highlight more products in its IBC booth, including:
- HVS-6000 and HVS-1200 vision mixers
- MFR-4000 and MFR-1000 routing switcher
- MV-4300 multi-viewer
- DSK-4800 4K/Downstream Keyer
- FA-9600 multi-purpose signal processor
- EDD-5400 4K Time Lag Checker
- SDI and IP Integrated System
IBC 2018 takes places at the RAI in Amsterdam from 14-18 September.
