FOR-A to show multi-purpose signal processors at NAB

Improving live production and newsroom workflows

FOR-A Corporation of America will showcase its processing solutions at the 2020 NAB Show (Booth C5016), which runs April 19-22 in Las Vegas, Nev. The versatile FA-9600 multi-purpose signal processor, which was featured at a world rugby event in October, will be used again by premiere broadcasters at the 2020 Tokyo summer games.

Suited for transmission centers, mobile production vehicles, production studios, and news stations, the compact FA-9600 simplifies all types of video conversion, and has been highly evaluated for its fully compliant HDR/SDR conversion specifications. Each of its two HD/SD inputs includes a frame synchronizer, HDR and Wide Color Gamut support, and conversion of multiple formats, including 12G, 4K (UHD), 1080p, and HD/SD. Users can switch between simultaneous 4K/HD mode with single-channel up/down conversion or dual HD mode with dual-channel up/down conversion.

Designed for live HDR broadcast production, the FA-9600 also supports 3D LUT for advanced color grading. The processor features unprecedented conversion accuracy with its built-in LUTs and support of 3D LUTs for SDR-HDR, HDR-HDR, and HDR-SDR conversions in mixed SDR and HDR production environments. The flexibility of the FA-9600 also allows user LUTs to be saved for instant recall. Several SDR/HDR log curves are supported, including SDR BT.1886, SDR BT.709, HLG BT.2100, SMPTE ST 2084 (PQ), S-Log3, Canon Log 2, and Canon Log 3.

The FA-9600 supports Sony's SR Live workflow for the simultaneous creation of 4K HDR and HD HDR in live production. Plus, its 12G-SDI terminals provide support for 4K production (with optional software), while an optional expansion card provides four additional channels of 3G-SDI I/O or six channels of 12G-SDI distributed output.

For multi-channel routing and processing, the FA-505 multi-channel signal processor features five inputs and outputs, with support for 4K and simple HDR conversion. It supports 3G-SDI and HD/SD-SDI as standard, with aspect ratio conversion and up/down/cross conversion including 720p-to-1080i and 1080i-to-720p. Other features include frame sync, color correction, SNMP support, and eight-frame frame buffer that can be individually applied to each channel. The FA-505 also features versatile audio signal processing, with delay adjustment, remapping, and sampling rate converter.
