FOR-A TO SHOW KEY PRODUCTS AT ANNUAL CAPER CONVENTION IN BUENOS AIRES FOR-A Corporation of America, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, today announces the companys participation at CAPER 2011 (Camara Argentina de Proveedores y Fabricantes de Equipos de Radiodifusion), an annual convention focused on digital television technology.

Recognized as a critically important gathering for broadcasters in Argentina and surrounding Latin countries, CAPER 2011 will take place from October 26-28, 2011 at the Centro Costa Salguero in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

At the show, FOR-A products will have a showcase at the booth of its Argentinean distributor SVC (Sistemas de Video Comunicacion SA), a sales, engineering, and systems integration company based in Buenos Aires. SVC has provided over 25 years of service and support to the Latin broadcast community and is a vital business partner to FOR-A in the region, which encompasses Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Bolivia.

In the SVC booth, CAPER 2011 show-goers will see a variety of FOR-A solutions for cost-effective, live broadcast production including: the VFC-7000 HD Super Slow Motion Camera; the FA-9500 3G/HD/SD multi-purpose signal processor; LTR-100HS LTO-5 Video Archiving Recorder, VTW-330 HD/SD Character Generator and HVS-300HS and HVS-350HS live video switcher.

CAPER 2011 will mark the first time that FOR-A has shown the VFC-7000 Super Slow Motion Camera in a full broadcast setupincluding a high-end lens, viewfinder, and tripodin Latin America. The VFC-7000 is a compact, lightweight, user-friendly camera capable of high-speed HD recording from 24 to 700 fps. It offers a high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor; electronic high-speed shutter of up to 1/200,000th of a second; and recording times ranging from 9.8 to 29.5 seconds.

The ability to capture fast-moving subjects without any motion blur makes the VFC-7000 ideal for live sports, said Pedro Silvestre, Sales Director, FOR-A Corporation of America. The VFC-7000 is part of a comprehensive, affordable FOR-A product range which, when used together, meets critical live production needs.

FOR-A will also show two powerful, compact HD/SD video switchers: the HVS-300HS 1-M/E portable switcher and the HVS-350HS 1.5-M/E switcher. The HVS-350HS offers integrated frame synchronizers; 2D/3D wipe effects; DVE; (dual-channel) keyer with chroma key and picture in picture; (four channel) DSK and still stores; and dual-channel, 16-way multiviewers. The HVS-300HS offers integrated frame synchronizers; up converters; 2D/3D wipe effects; keyer with chroma key; dual channel P-in-P; DSK and still stores; and 16-way multiviewer.

CAPER 2011 is also an opportunity to exhibit the FA-9500, a 3G/HD/SD multi-purpose signal processor for use in multi-standard, multi-format DTV environments. Besides functioning as a frame synchronizer, the FA-9500 provides up/down/cross/aspect conversion, plus a second converter for down/cross/aspect conversion, a color corrector, Dolby E encoder/decoder, and automatic video optimizer for all types of video and audio signals.

With its 1.5-terrabytes of recording capacity, the FOR-A LTR-100HS video archiving recorder ingests and archives large quantities of HD media cost-effectively using LTO-5 datatape. Equipped with a high-quality MPEG-2 encoder, the LTR-100HS includes an MXF wrapper/un-wrapper so that MXF files recorded in real-time to LTO-5 tape can be used directly by nonlinear editing systems.

Were looking forward to meeting current and prospective Latin American clients at CAPER 2011, Silvestre added. Were confident that we have very compelling production solutions that will appeal to this rapidly growing DTV market.
