Overview
  • 1Description

The For-A HVS-3800HS-16OUA HD/SD 2M/E Digital Video Switcher is a multi-bit rate, multi-format live video switcher equipped with a wide variety of professional features designed for the most demanding studio environments. This unit serves as the foundation for a fully customizable system that can be built out or scaled to match your changing needs. Rather than include multiple features inputs/outputs that oftentimes go unused, For.A designed this unit as a solid base solution with the option to expand the system at will by adding new cards and other functional upgrades. Features include 3D transitions, color correction, and chroma keying.

It includes both digital and analog input and output boards, which can be configured to meet your exact needs. More than (21) different configurations with several hundred variations of input-output signalization are possible. The unit supports most HD and SD formats and is switchable between HD and SD video by simply reinitializing the mode setup. This model also offers an event memory that can store up to (100) event and setting conditions, which can be assigned to (8) user buttons.

In addition to mix transitions, the unit also includes more than 100 other preset wipe patterns. A picture-in-picture function allows for building composites with up to (2) reduced-size screens without using DVEs. Up to (2) graphic images can be stored on the unit's internal memory for use as logos or other background images. USB memory can also be connected to the switcher to import additional images.

Other features include DSK with chroma-key function and freely assignable DSK. A vertical, horizontal, or diagonal gradation matte can be assigned to backgrounds, wipe borders, and key mattes. Moreover, both input and offset levels can be independently adjusted to enable easy color correction and color matching with on-site work using multiple cameras.

4RU Main Unit
The main unit incorporates a redundant power supply, DVE cards, additional function options, and a wide range of other functions in 4RU size. The additional function options also allow installation of a number of video peripherals for use of fewer system devices and reduced space.
Compact DVEs
Internal DVE cards can be installed for enabling effects. Up to 2 cards can be installed. HVS-38DVE2D designed for HVS-3800HS. It enables use of 1-channel DVE in HD mode or 2-channel DVEs in SD mode. Also HVS-38SDVE2D designed for HVS-3800S. It enables use of 2-channel DVEs in SD mode. The channels can be assigned to any bus (BKGD, KEY1, KEY2, and KEY3).
HD/SD Switchable
HVS-3800HS is switchable between HD or SD formats by simply re-initializing the Operation Unit's mode setup. HVS-3800HS functions in various HD formats such as 1080/60i and 720/60p. Additional support includes 4:3 display generation in HD mode; or the choice of letter-box or squeeze display in SD mode. Thus, providing the preparation needed for up/down conversions.
Up to 6 Still Stores
In addition to the standard 4 still stores, a memory card can be used to enable importing of image data from a PC and exporting images stored in the switcher. Logo animation and motion blur using divided areas of the image are also supported. HVS-38SS or HVS-38SSAM6/12 options can be added for two more still stores.
Additional Still Image Storage
In addition to memory cards, HVS-38SS or HVS-38SSAM6/12 options can also be installed in the main unit. This enables storing of up to 200 still images files (in HD format) without using any external media. *This option does not support recording or playback of the following formats: 1080/24p, 1080/24sF, 1080/23.98p and 1080/23.98sF.
Animation Function
An optional frame memory HVS-38SSAM6/12 can be installed as an expansion function to enable storage and playback of movie files as uncompressed HD video.
6 Keyers
The HVS-3800HS offers a total of 6 keyers, with 3 keyers for each M/E (2 keyers + 1 DSK) as standard. This enables keying of up to 9 layers when re-entry of one M/E line is used. Chroma key functions are also available for KEY1 and KEY2 of each M/E. Up to 4 keyers can be used.
Up to 6 Still Stores
In addition to the standard 4 still stores, a memory card can be used to enable importing of image data from a PC and exporting images stored in the switcher. Logo animation and motion blur using divided areas of the image are also supported. Options can be added for two more still stores.
Line DVEs
DVEs can be applied to the PGM, PST, KEY1, KEY2, and KEY3 buses for enabling transitions for the image using wipe or mix. This makes it easy to set picture-in-picture and other effects.
Forced Background
The Forced Background function allows mixing or wiping effects inside the digital effects image for more versatile renditions of effects despite being a 1.5M/E switcher.
Event Memory
The HVS-3800HS includes an event memory that can store the data for up to 200 events and setting conditions.
Additional Still Image Storage
In addition to memory cards, HVS-38SS or HVS-38SSAM6/12 options can also be installed in the main unit. This enables storing of up to 200 still images files (in HD format) without using any external media.
Movie Playback Function
An optional frame memory HVS-38SSAM6/12 can be installed as an expansion function to enable storage and playback of movie files as uncompressed HD video.

Up Converter/Down Converter
Up to 4 channels can be installed for up converter input HVS-38UC or down converter output HVS-38DC*. This enables up-converted signals to be assigned to the M/E, AUX, and KEYER buses in the same way as external input and internal still stores. *The down converter output allows installation of one channel only.
Editor Support
Support is provided for a wide range of editing protocols. Installation of the optional editor interface HVS-38ED enables connection of editors from various makers to this system. (Supported protocols: BVS-3000 and GVG-100)
Sequence Function
A sequence memory of up to 20 patterns can be set in combination with the registered event memory. Sequences can be linked to faders for even easier operation.
User Setting Buttons
Shortcut buttons are provided that enable registration of user-selected functions and menu options for speedy switcher operation.
Motion Blur
The motion blur function can provide blur trail effects for moving images. The effect level can be adjusted with the fader control.

High-performance, Compact DVEs
Internal DVE cards can be installed for enabling effects. Up to 2 cards can be installed. HVS-38DVE2D designed for HVS-3800HS. It enables use of 1-channel DVE in HD mode or 2-channel DVEs in SD mode. It enables use of 2-channel DVEs in SD mode. The channels can be assigned to any bus (BKGD, KEY1, KEY2, and KEY3).
Real 3D DVEs
In additional to regular DVEs, users can also install a card for the most eye-catching feature of the HANABI series, real 3D DVEs. The mapping is real time and features uncompromised image quality.
Color Correction Features Added
Optional color correction functions can be applied to the primary inputs and keyers. Proc Amp controls, gamma corrections and various clip functions are all available. The parameters for any of these functions can be registered in the event memory to enable different changes to be made in the course of sequences.
