US-based FOR-A has built integrated live production solutions that combine a host of components it manufactures.
The system combines its Hanabi series of video switchers with Variant Systems Group replay systems, ClassX graphics and playout software, Odyssey Insight video servers, and Brainstorm Multimedia virtual studios.
“Together with our technology partners, FOR-A is creating live production systems that make integration easier and more reliable,” said Ken Truong, President of FOR-A Corporation of America.
“With the combined expertise from these companies across the professional video industry, we can offer solutions that improve workflows while delivering broadcast-quality results for HD, 4K, and beyond.”
Variant’s Envivo Replay offers a cost-effective sports and live event replay solution, with an intuitive user interface and continuous multiple iso-channel recording capabilities.
It offers simultaneous clip storage of multiple angles, playlists for highlights playback, built-in branding capabilities, and direct publishing to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social media platforms. FOR-A is the exclusive distributor of Envivo Replay in North America.
FOR-A - the exclusive distributor of ClassX in North, Central and South America – also combines the latest ClassX real-time 2D/3D HD/4K CG and live motion broadcast graphics and playout solutions with its Hanabi video switchers.
Odyssey’s Insight video server is a versatile system that provides recording and playout capabilities for production environments.
Its distinctive web interface allows easy operation and feedback for the operator via the preview channels. The system can be operated directly from FOR-A’s Hanabi switchers for transitions and event triggering. Insight’s product range includes 4K and HD multi-channel units in SDI up to 12G, including the new SMPTE ST 2110 server.
