The HVS-110 HD/SD Portable Video Switcher from For.A is a compact and portable unit that incorporates a range of functions and features including mixed SD/HD input, frame synchronizing, re-sizing engine, 2.5D wipe effects, DVE, keyer with chroma key, and DSK. The switcher also includes a built-in Web server that lets you change settings from a PC or tablet. A clip memory feature has been added to the still store to support elaborate performances such as through the use of CG wipes, while the multi-viewer meets a diverse range of monitoring needs.

The switcher combines the main unit and control panel into a compact and portable unit. With its ample amount of video input and output functionality, the HVS-110 is suitable for a variety of locations, including live events, ports, news studio, OB vans, helicopters, editorial offices, and presentation venues. Despite being portable, a redundant power source is also possible using an AC adapter (sold separately).

12 Inputs; 6 + 1 Outputs
12 HD/SD SDI inputs, 8 HD/SD SDI outputs, and 1 HDMI output come standard. Mixed HD/SD input is also supported in the standard configuration, and the 9 outputs can all be freely assigned.
Frame Synchronizers
Eight inputs in the HVS-110 are fitted with frame synchronizers that enable switching of asynchronous video signals. Installation of optional expansion cards supports asynchronous picture input from PCs, etc. Each input is also equipped with a process amplifier capable of adjusting the video level and chroma level, etc. of the input signal.
Re-Sizing Engine
A re-sizing engine (expansion) is provided on 4 of the standard inputs. This achieves a fully mixed SD/HD environment with a switcher alone, with no need to connect any external equipment such as an up-converter. This is readily suitable for re-sizing not only SD signals but also PC video.
2 Keyers and 2 DSKs
The mixer features 2 keyers, 2 DSKs, and 4 2.5D DVE engines. The keyer has a chroma key function. A chroma keyer can be assigned to any one of the two M/E keyers or two downstream keyers. The 4 DVE engines can be assigned to any keyer or used for functions such as transitions. With their standard 2.5D ability, allows flexible creativity for the operator to enhance productions.
Abundant Transitions and DVEs
Cut, mix, and wipe can be chosen for the transition. Diverse DVE wipes include 100 2.5D wipe patterns and page turn. Along with wipes, effects like mosaic and defocus are also provided.
2 Still/Clip Stores
Each store can hold up to 227 frames of HD video. Images can be recorded and played back from incoming video or PGM o/p, or animations transferred over FTP (.bmp, .jpeg, .tga sequences). Clip store images can be used as CG wipe transitions, to further enhance possibilities and add production value. In addition, should both stores be used for clips, then still images can still be used as well, by the standard feature of using some of the inputs as still stores.
Display channels can be freely assigned, allowing assignment of not only input source but also PGM output. Each channel offers title display and tally display functions. The multi-viewers lets you display 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, or 16 sources at once.
Event Memory and User Button
The main unit is equipped with an event memory function allowing up to 100 events to be stored. Event memories can be simply recalled by the user buttons. Mixer set-ups and useful operational tools such as key set up and DVE position/size can all be stored in event memories. You can freely set the transition time and effect for loading events. By setting up in advance, event memories can bring extra power and creativity, simply by pressing buttons during the live event. User buttons can also be used for many other features, such as instant navigation to a selectable menu page, grab a still, send a GPI, and preview a key.
Macro Function
A macro function enables you to store and register a series of operations and then perform complicated operations with the push of a button.
Freely Assignable DSK
You can assign 2 DSK channels to either PGM, PST, or AUX. This unit not only supports M/E and P/P bus, but also AUX bus transition switching. As a result, when displaying videos on a separate monitor besides the main system, you can actively use AUX to expand the range of your production.
External Interfaces
External interfaces include GPI port supporting up to 24 inputs/outputs and two RS-422 ports as standard. The RS-422 ports support for connecting an HVS-30RU remote unit, tally expansion boxes, device specific VDCP, VTR, MFR routers, or TSL. An Ethernet port is used during PC control. An editor interface option allows you to connect to an editor/automation system or other external control system.
GUI Control Function
A built-in Web server enables switcher settings to be changed from a PC via a network. Mobile and tablet devices can also be used through a wireless access point.
Redundant Power Supply
An optional redundant AC adapter enables doubling-up of power source. An enlarged fan and improved exhaust process provides quiet operation, making it suitable for installation near the control panel or in quiet environments.
