New video production switcher and graphics system for WLVT-TV

FOR-A HVS-2000 HANABI video production switcher and ClassX broadcast graphics system

PBS39/WLVT TV, part of Lehigh Valley Public Media based in Bethlehem, Penn., has upgraded its control room with a FOR-A HVS-2000 HANABI video production switcher and ClassX broadcast graphics system, FOR-A announces. The new equipment has improved the on-air look of the station’s original programming as well as its live production workflows.

For example, the HVS-2000 can load and playback graphics from the ClassX, so the TD can access them during live productions. As a result, PBS39’s graphics designer does not have to be in the control room for “routine” productions. Part of the station’s multi-year equipment upgrade plan, the HVS-2000 and ClassX replaced aging Grass Valley and Chyron systems. PBS39 equipped the new switcher with 32 inputs (expandable to 48) and a 3 M/E panel with 6 M/E performance, plus 4 MELite buses, which transform traditional AUX buses into fully functional M/Es.

FOR-A is the exclusive distributor of ClassX in North, Central, and South America. The agreement provides broadcasters and live event producers with the ability to create and play out ClassX real-time broadcast graphics integrated with FOR-A video switchers.
