For.A HVS-390MU2ME overview

  • 1Description

The For.A HVS-390HS Video Switcher with 2 M/E Configuration is a 3U multi-format video switcher with 16 SDI inputs, 8 SDI outputs, and 1 HDMI output. The SDIs support up to 1.5 Gbps and up to 1080/59.94i/50i. The inputs all have frame synchronizers on them. Signal processing is at 4:2:2. A large fan and an efficient exhaust process guarantee silent operation.

The switcher must optionally be paired with a compatible 2 M/E control panel -- either with the HVS-392OU from the HVS-390HS series, the HVS-392ROU rack-size from the same series, or the HVS-30RU remote control sub panel from the HVS-300HS series. All three can actually be connected at the same time for simultaneous control. The switcher can additionally expand to many more HVS-390HS components to support wider applications. By means of optional input/output option boards, the SDI inputs can be increased to 24 and the outputs to 13, all also supporting 1.5 Gbps.

Of the existing inputs, 13 through 16 can be used to resize SD signals to HD. The addition of optional boards will allow resizing on more inputs and will also allow resizing computer signals. 8 keyers come standard and each includes a bus and a luminance key and an independent 2.5D DVE. Up to 100 events can be stored, and each can be recalled at the push of a button. Many more features come standard, and many more can be upgraded to, as described below.

Frame Synchronizer on All Inputs
  • Individual frame synchronizers on all inputs support the switching of asynchronous signals
  • Includes Proc Amp control to adjust video and chroma levels
HD, SD Mixed Input; Resize Engine
  • Inputs 13 through 16 can resize SD signals to HD
  • Inputs on an optional HVS-30HSDI input board can also be used resize SD to HD
  • Inputs on an optional HVS-30PCIN input board can be used to resize computer signals
Keyers with DVE
  • 8 keyers come standard
  • Each keyer features a bus and luminance key and an independent 2.5D DVE
  • High-level chroma keyer on keys 1, 2, 5 and 6
  • Keys 3, 4, 7 and 8 can be assigned to AUX outputs for keying sizing or positioning
  • Four 3D DVEs are available for background and keyer
Transitions / Wipes / Effects
  • Transitions: M/E bus: CUT, MIX, WIPE
  • Wipe: 100 2D and 68 3D wipe patterns (including 3D Page Turn)

Dual Multi-Viewer
  • Each of two multi-view channels is capable of displaying a maximum of 16 split windows
  • 4, 10, and 16 window split patterns
  • Different display patterns and channels can be set for each of the multi-viewers
  • All sources, including internal sources, inputs and outputs can be monitored on the multi-viewers
  • Each multi-viewer window is equipped with title, tally and audio meter display
Event Memory with Loading Duration
  • Up to 100 events can be stored
  • Direct recall function recalls events at the push of one button
  • Event load with duration: sets transition time and effect for loading events
Still Stores
  • 4 standard still stores support animated logos
  • Input video and PGM output can be captured as still images
  • Still images generated on a PC or other source can be loaded over Ethernet
  • Images can be loaded via USB connection if an optional control panel is connected

  • Up to 120 frames can be recorded by means of an optional HVS-39MEM expansion card
  • Saves consecutive still images transferred from a PC as video clips (the number of frames that can be saved does not change, even when simultaneously recording Fill + Key)
Web Control
  • Many controls are accessible from an external PC via the switcher's built-in browser
  • Controls are accessible from notebooks and tablets via a wireless LAN router
Flexible Input / Output
  • 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs, 8 HD/SD-SDI outputs, and one HDMI output
