FOR-A HVS-500HS Switcher Records Live Events In HD For High End TV

(June 07, 2007)
DMN Newswire--2007-6-7--High End TV, an HD equipment rental house located in Nashville, TN that specializes in concert and sports production, recently selected FOR-A’s HVS-500HS production switcher.


High End TV senior engineer, Adam Mills said they added the HVS-500HS to their arsenal of mobile production equipment because it was the most cost effective way for his company to meet demand for high definition production of live events: “For the price, the FOR-A HVS-500HS switcher had the absolute best line up of features and benefits in a switcher that size.”


Concert productions are in high demand in Nashville. Purchasing the HVS-500HS gave High End TV the multi-camera capability needed to meet that demand. High End TV engineers took the FOR-A switcher and built a full bandwidth HD flight pack around it. Now the company can readily accept jobs that call for HD multi-camera work.  “A client told us they needed to do an HD six camera shoot, but hiring a production truck was breaking their budget. We were able to accept the job and do it for a third of the cost,” explained Mills. “It turned out to be the biggest shoot we’d ever done. There’s a lot of interest in town now that we’ve added the HVS-500HS. To be able to do a six camera shoot for what we charge is pretty remarkable.”


The HVS-500HS is a self-contained switcher that accepts analog and digital HD and SD formats – with no external conversion required. One of the switcher’s major innovations is its variety of input/output interfaces, including SD-SDI, HD-SDI, Analog Component SD and Analog Component HD.  It can also connect to HDV cameras or PCs using component video break-out cables.


The HVS-500HS can be quickly installed and integrated. “We took delivery one week before a major event, had the unit integrated and up and running in no time” said Mills. “FOR-A was very helpful with that part of it as well.”
