IBC2022: FOR-A to highlight latest FA-1616 multichannel processor and NDI capabilities
FOR-A will demonstrate a range of IP production solutions powered by broadcast-optimised transport technology from Ammux during IBC2022. The company will also demonstrate practical implementations of 4K Ultra HD and live event broadcast solutions built on NDI connectivity and highlight the latest product innovations across its switcher, router, server and replay solutions portfolio, as well as its Integrated Live Production System.
FOR-A’s new architecture of software-defined IP solutions, integrated with software-based IP technology from Ammux will form the heart of its latest REMI offering. With low latency encoding and decoding and secure RIST (Reliable Internet Stream Transport) for simultaneous video, audio, data and equipment control streams, the Ammux operating system is optimised specifically for broadcast applications. Built-in Web Real-time Communication (WebRTC) eliminates the need for a specific player or gateway to ensure free access to files from anywhere via a web browser.
Visitors to the FOR-A stand will be able to see its new FA-1616 multichannel processor with software-defined architecture, which supports the latest requirements for 12G 4K and the hybrid SDI/IP environment in action. Having SMPTE ST2110 and ST2022 I/F, FA-1616 is described as an optimal gateway between SDI and IP as well as IP-to-IP and SDI-to-SDI – which is ideal for SDI and IP hybrid operation. Built on the upgraded versions of its FA-9600 multichannel processor, it handles up, down and cross conversion, and colour processing and colour space management.
To meet the growing need for live events and remote productions to handle a variety of signal formats, FOR-A will have a dedicated demonstration of its live hybrid production solution, which is both SDI and NDI compatible. Built on the upgraded versions of its HVS-490 video switcher and installed new board HVS-NIF , the demonstration will show a live hybrid production solution which is both SDI and NDI compatible, as well as incorporating sources such as multiple Zoom feeds.
