REASONS TO BUY
1Easy-to-use control panel
Offers enhanced usability and supports accurate control through color-coded button lights for specific material or button functions, a built-in 7-inch mini menu touch panel with thumbnail display, button/macro bus macro name display, and more. Direct input via a three-axis (XYZ) joystick, dials, and a keyboard. Several user-customizable buttons are available to assign as functions.
26 M/E performance
2M/E + 4MELite™ with FLEXaKEY™ architecture
In addition to two full M/E’s, the switcher includes MELite. With cuts, mixing, wiping, and keying “all with preview” available from four MELite buses. Operators will enjoy the performance of 6M/E’s in a single unit. MELite is ready for a broad range of scenarios, such as providing an independent “web cut” output, expanding an operation with multiple control surfaces, delegating M/E resource and even allowing a single operator from a single desk to easily control independent transitions on multiple monitors. Excellent for staging applications.
34 keyers per M/E, plus 4 FLEXaKEY per system
The four FLEXaKEY system can be freely assigned to M/E 1, M/E 2, or MELite (AUX output). When assigned to M/E 2, up to eight keyers (4 keys and 4 FLEXaKEY) can be combined. DVE is available for FLEXaKEY to generate multiple P-in-Ps. FLEXaKEY can also be assigned to an MELite bus and Advanced Aux as an upstream keyer, and to multiple AUX buses to change each with keying output. Useful in many scenarios.
424 inputs/18 outputs standard,
expandable to 48/18 or 40/22
Besides standard inputs and outputs, six expansion slots enable you to add optional I/O cards for easy in-field expansion. Easily incorporate an array of content from PC sources (such as PowerPoint, videos played on computers, webcam images, or Skype calling screens) and combine it with broadcast material. Even analog composite I/O can be added.
5Four 2.5D DVEs per M/E, Four 3D DVEs
2.5D DVEs enable free arrangement of P-in-Ps in a 3D space using global axes. Also combines exceptionally well with 3D content, as with virtual studios. Flying key, which moves titles with DVEs applied, is available from all DVEs and can be assigned to all resources in any M/E, whether PGM, PST, or KEY 1-4. P-in-Ps are available in a variety of other shapes besides standard shapes such as quadrilaterals, and can be used in live sports coverage, for example. The switcher’s 3D DVEs include page turn and other warping effects.
63G and 4k upgrades
Systems supporting 3 Gbps 1080/59.94p or 50p and even 4K are a requirement today in many operations. Rest assured that the HVS-2000 is ready today or for your future upgrade plans.
Powerful quad FLEXaKEY allows the operator to place keyers in practical areas of the switcher:
- Add keys to traditional M/E resources to provide more graphic layers
- Add keys to AUX and multiply additional M/E’s (MELite)
- Can also expand and multiply AUX bus transitions
This powerful, distinguishing and core feature allows a traditional AUX bus to transform into a full functional M/E with cuts, mixes, wipes, keys all with preview (MELite). The MELite is the building block to a real full-function 6M/E switcher and can be assigned upstream or downstream from main mix effects. Also, MELite allows operators to configure a 3M/E switcher with a 3 rows control surface that provides independent output with transitions to display sources on back monitors in the studio.
Independent output with transition function and keyer allow sources to be displayed to the studio back monitor.
Multiple image display wall
4 outputs of MELite allows operators to control a multi-display wall as if it were a single display. Graphics can be displayed over a large video wall canvas and transitioned over the quad background.
Running multiple programs
Connecting a small control panel allows a single unit to supply dual operation and share all resources between two suites.
2 M/E switcher x 2
Using MELite + M/E 1 in pairs, and MELite + M/E 2 in pairs, the HVS-2000 can be transformed into two 2 M/E switchers.
Multiple language programs
With bus and key linking, the unit is able to function in a multi-language operation. Language B will follow Language A, displaying the same sources and programed graphics as Language A output with different language.
Simple 3 M/E
Operators can deploy MELite as a third-M/E, transforming the switcher into a 3M/E switcher. The third M/E can be a source for M/E 1 and M/E 2. MELite can also compose M/E 1 and M/E 2.
6 M/E switcher capability
2 M/E + 4 MELite with FLEXaKEY architecture allow the system to be utilized as a 6 M/E switcher.
ONStage is an extremely powerful capability, exclusive to FOR-A! With ONStage mode and our agile MELite, operators can now preview the MELite before mix, wipe and keying. In addition, operators can assign multiple MELites so the operator has delegable manual lever arm transition control and assign keyer functions. With MELite and ONStage any staging venue can operate a main center Program display and operate multiple independent Image Magnification displays. Never before has this sort of power and creativity been offered to video professionals.
A new menu system that allows operators to easily configure and change system parameters, offering full system control, using both a built-in 7-inch touch panel (MiniMenu™) with thumbnail display and external monitor.
P-MEM is capable of saving and recalling full switcher set-up or series of operations on M/E, MELite and AUX. P-MEM can be used with macro functions and operators only need to push one button to perform a complex series of events.
