FOR-A Switcher Anchors All Mobile Video EX3 Carrypack
All Mobile Video built a multicamera “EX3 Carrypack” portable production system anchored by a FOR-A HVS-500HS HANABI HD/SD portable digital-video switcher.
The customizable HVS-500HS 1 M/E switcher features 10-bit, 4:2:2 internal processing and up to 12 inputs and seven outputs; supports various 1080i and 720p standard; and is switchable from NTSC to PAL.
Other standard features on the FOR-A switcher include two still stores and a dedicated picture-in-picture function that enables the building of composites with up to two reduced-size screens without using DVEs.
The EX3 Carrypack was used on its first project in March, a multicamera studio production at AMV’s Unitel Studio in Manhattan for new MTV game show Silent Library.
