FOR-A Delivers Video Switcher Integration with and nbsp;Technology Partners for Live Production Solutions

FOR-A Corporation of America has built integrated live production solutions that combine 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 best-of-breed 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. An expansion I/O card for HVS-100, HVS-490, and HVS-2000 production switchers enables a close integration of the ClassX graphic playout from any HANABI video switcher directly by the switcher operator. ClassX’s real-time graphics playout software suite is popular with TV channels, news broadcasters, live event productions, and live sports productions.

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.

Brainstorm’s LiteSet is a virtual set application designed to be integrated within a FOR-A system configuration. LiteSet is supplied as a single software licence and embedded within the FOR-A HVS-100/110 video switcher, which uses its control panel to manage and operate the Brainstorm application. The best-in-class combination of LiteSet and HVS-100/110 provides a wide range of sophisticated capabilities, yet the application is simple to install, maintain, and operate with its easy-to-use interface. LiteSet is suitable for a wide range of virtual studio requirements where a trackless environment is sufficient to comply with the needs of the user.

35th anniversary Posted: 29/07/2020
35th anniversary

Admittedly, it’s not the best time to celebrate an anniversary, but the occasion remains: Guntermann & Drunck GmbH (G&D) has been in business for 35 years and is considered one of the hidden champions of Germany’s South Westphalia region. The Siegen-based company develops and manufactures KVM products for extending and switching computer signals, and operates on a global scale. KVM systems from G&D are installed in numerous control rooms around the globe, for example in air traffic control centers, TV & film production studios, the chemical industry as well as in the energy sector.

The company was founded on 22 July 1985 by Udo Guntermann and Martin Drunck as well as Reiner Ruelmann. Today, the medium-sized company continues to grow solidly and employs around 100 people at its locations in Siegen, Germany, and Burbank, CA, USA. “We were already developing KVM devices before the technology even had a name" says Roland Ollek, CEO of Guntermann & Drunck GmbH. “Our company works in a niche occupied by few companies in the world. With our expertise in providing solutions and developing products close to both the market and our customers, we have now become one of the world's leading hidden champions.”
