NAB 2017: FOR-A To Intro New 12G-SDI-Supported Multiviewer, Fujitsu’s HEVC Encoder/Decoder
At NAB 2017, FOR-A (C5117) will introduce the latest solution in its lineup of multiviewers, the 12G-SDI supported MV-4300 unit. In addition, FOR-A will introduce the latest product in Fujitsu’s line of video transmission solutions, the IP-HE950 real-time H.265/HEVC encoder/decoder units, as part of the wide variety of video and audio solutions in booth.
Introducing the 12G-SDI-Supported MV-4300 Multiviewer
The user-friendly MV-4300 multiviewer allows customers to configure their own unit with optional input cards SDI up to 12G, DVI-I, HDMI and analog composite. It accepts up to 68 inputs and eight separate configurable outputs. Features of the MV-4300 unit include HDMI 2.0b output, mixed 2K/4K output, HD to 4K up-resizing, and logo display in title areas.
The 3RU MV-4300 multi viewer is the latest in FOR-A’s MV-4000 series, and will be showcased in the IP/12G-SDI area of the company’s booth. In this section of the booth, FOR-A will also demo other new solutions, including the MV-4220 – an expanded version of its MV-4200 multi viewer that comes standard with 12G-SDI inputs in a 2RU frame. The MV-4200 series is ideal for use in monitoring environments that will display 4K Ultra HD TV and for broadcasts with mixed signal environments.
Other new products in the IP/12G-SDI area include the MFR-4000 4K routing switcher, the MFC-2GB “gearbox” for mutual converting between 12G-SDI and quad link 3G-SDI, and the ESG-4100 test signal generator – which mounts 12G-SDI port and can output color bars and test signal in various formats.
Fujitsu’s New IP-HE950 H.265 Real-Time Video Transmission Solution
Also at NAB, FOR-A will introduce the latest product in Fujitsu’s line of video transmission solutions, the IP-HE950 real-time H.265/HEVC encoder/decoder units. Employing the latest compression tools and image processing algorithms to provide best-in-class video fidelity, the IP-HE950 supports real-time 4K contribution, as well as SD and HD. FOR-A is a distributor of Fujitsu’s high-performance encoders and decoders in North America, Europe, Middle-East and Africa, as well as select regions in Latin America. The IP-HE950 encoder/decoder units will be shown FOR-A’s NAB booth, #C5117.
The IP-HE950 will be shown in FOR-A’s IP/12G-SDI booth area. The Fujitsu IP series of video encoders and decoders use advanced technology encoding to perform real-time transmission of HDTV at low bit rates over DVB-ASI and broadband IP networks. The IP-HE950 utilizes new H.265/HEVC technology, which can provide a two times compression ratio over H.264/AVC technology.
The IP-HE950 comes in a small 1U half rack size chassis, with front panel and keys for easy operation. Offering low-latency operation and high reliable IP transfer, the unit supports a wide range of video resolutions – including SD, HD and 4K. The IP-HE950’s video format auto sensing function will adjust compression video formats automatically. Users can elect to install the Fujitsu unit as an HD model first, then upgrade to 4K later with simple field upgradable software, making it a future-proof investment.
The IP-HE950 features robust network error correction, dual encoding capabilities, and a variable I/O interface, and offers standard support for a wide range of input-output interfaces (features will be enhanced in stages). Two Ethernet ports come as standard with the IP-HE950.
Fujitsu’s IP-HE950 is one of over 15 new products that FOR-A will introduce in its NAB Show booth. Included in the extensive product line-up will be new production switchers, multi-viewers, routers, high-speed cameras, 3D graphic systems, and IP/SDI converters and transport gateways. The company is focused on comprehensive product integration, and as part of its full HD and 4K initiative, continuing with the construction of a comprehensive IP and 12G-SDI infrastructure.
