    The For-A HVS-300HS-TYPEA HD/SD 1M/E Portable Video Switcher is the newest addition to For-A's popular Hanabi series of video switchers. Boasting one of the most powerful feature sets while still being remarkably compact, the HVX-300HS takes up only 1RU of space in any standard 19" racking system. 

    The switcher features frame synchronization, along with channel resizing across the board. When using the resizing option, standard definition signals can be easily and effectively up-converted to high definition signals. Additional features include 2D and 3D transitions, keyer and chroma key, dual picture-in-picture, a 16-channel multi-viewer, and still stores. 

    This unit serves as the foundation for a fully customizable system that can be built out or scaled to match your changing needs. Rather than include multiple features inputs/outputs that oftentimes go unused, For-A designed this unit as a solid base solution with the option to expand the system at will by adding new cards and other functional upgrades.

    Compact Main Frame
    The main unit incorporates up to 12 inputs and 8 outputs, along with a frame synchronizer, re-sizing engine, still store, keyer with chroma key, DSK, and a wide array of other functions in a compact 1RU frame.
    Inputs and Outputs
    Four HD/SD-SDI inputs and outputs are provided in the standard configuration. This includes 2 PGM outputs and 2 AUX outputs, including analog component, composite, DVI, and RGB.
    Frame Sync
    Each input is fitted with its own frame synchronize which can be turn on or off for minimum delay. This is also allows any sources without genlock capability, including consumer devices and computers, to be used.
    Up-Conversion and Re-sizing
    Up-converter/re-sizing engine on every input. Should you need to use standard definition equipment in HD mode, just plug in. This is ideal for users making the transition to HD production.
    Keyer/DSK
    One keyer and one DSK are provided as standard features. The keyer provides an easy way to use broadcast level chroma key. Both keyer and DSKa re equipped with 3D DVE for positioning graphics or over the shoulder shots.
    Transitions
    CUT, MIX, and over 100 wipe patterns plus 56 2D/3D-DVE wipe patterns are all included. Additionally, the software comes with separate transitions for the keyers and picture functions.
    2 Still Stores
    The base unit also comes with 2 dedicated still stores, which can upload or download images via the USB port. The USB port also makes up and downloading users settings very quick and easy.
    Split Multi-Viewer
    One of the most popular new features of our switcher is its built in 16-channel multiviewer, a standard features. You can freely assign any input or output to the multiviewer, using its 4, 10, or 16 channel display. The multiviewer also features tally and tilting functions so that users always know which signals are going to each output.
    Picture-In-Picture
    For box shots, over the shoulder shots and graphic display, there are two dedicated picture-in-picture channels that can compress any input from 1% to 25%. These are in addition to the key DVEs. Users can also expand, squeeze, crop and add borders with the dual picture-in-picture mode. These effects can be assigned to user buttons so that fade-ins, fade-outs, slide-ins and slide-outs for picture-in-picture transitions can be operated by single button operations.
    On Screen Display
    Another new idea is to allow switcher settings to be displayed on a preview output so that configurations can easily be modified and status verified at a glance.
    Interfacing
    The unit also supports many types of interfacing such as RS-422, editor, arcnet, Ethernet, GPI and tally.
