An event that FOR-A likes to think is as significant as the Big Bang Theory that gave rise to the Milky Way is about to change video switchers for ever and send them into a new orbit. The VPS-700 "GINGA" (the Japanese word for "Galaxy") from FOR-A features completely new work flows, and is bursting with special effects that were not available until now. It paves the way for ground-breaking creativity in LIVE productions and editing suites. Be prepared to have all your ideas about video switchers shattered by the VPS-700!

Multi Layer & Multi DVE
The VPS-700 was developed based on an entirely new concept -- all inputs have independent 2D DVEs (option), making it equivalent to a monstrous 32-channel DVE. Mix/Effect (M/E) transitions are combined by two independent pre-combiners, and two-channel combined outputs can be assigned to the PGM and PST buses. This means that all videos that are input to the switcher can be combined and displayed at one time. This video representation delivers dramatic impact unattainable with previous video switchers.

Maximum of 16 Input / Outputs
All inputs in the VPS-700 include a frame synchronizer (FS) that provides asynchronous input. It also features a freeze frame function using FS memory and still store, can display video captured by M/E as still video for each input, and can display CG images that were created elsewhere. Basic input includes eight SD-SDI channels, and SDI input or analog input are also available as an option. As a digital/analog mixed switcher, the VPS-700 supports expansion up to 16 inputs. Basic output provides a total of eight channels: two PGM channels, PVW, Clean, and four AUX channels. Available options include eight SDI outputs (in four-output units) or four analog outputs (in two-output units for composite). The PVW and Clean output channels can also be used as KEY OUT, and the AUX outputs including the additional outputs can be freely assigned for enabling output of the required video from a selected terminal.

M/E Bus
The M/E bus can handle switching of 16 inputs (optional configuration), 4 matte generators, 2 still stores, 2 pre-combiners, and black for a total of 25 inputs. Transitions can be selected from cut, mix, wipe, and DVEs. More than 100 wipe patterns, including swirl and other distinctive patterns, are available that enable wipe borders and positioning adjustment.

Wide Range of Still Stores
All inputs can be frozen using FS memory. The frozen images at M/E bus can also be saved built-in-storage and can be assigned using two cross-points independent from other inputs.
Proc Amp / Clip Function
A process amplifier and white clip function are provided for each input as standard. This enables level and other adjustments within the switcher without the need for peripherals.

6 Keyers
6 keyers are available in the standard configuration, and 4 keyers can select from cut, mix, wipe, and DVE transitions. The 2 DSKs enable cut and mix transitions. All keyers incorporate chroma keys using the 4:4:4 process and can perform masking with wipe patterns, edge and shadow effects, and key channel effects with assigned DVEs.

Compact Main Unit
The main unit incorporates up to 16 inputs and 16 outputs, FS function, still store, Proc Amp, clip function, DVEs, keyers, and a wide array of other functions in a compact EIA 2RU size. A special main unit with a built-in redundant power supply is also available with all these functions incorporated into an EIA 3RU body size.

Compact and Instinctively Comprehensible Control Panel
The compact and easy-to-use control panel of the VPS-700 has basic PGM/PST rows and fader levels, 3-axis joystick, parameter display, and optional touch panel controller. Despite these numerous ground-breaking functions, the VPS-700 will not overwhelm you with complicated operations.
6-channel 3D DVEs
In addition to the DVEs provided for each input channel, the VPS-700 also provides 6-channel 2.5D DVEs. The addition of a 3D warp module option enables usage of Ripple, Swirl, Slats, Page Turn and a wide variety of other warp effects and a total of 12 lighting effects. The result when combined with the input DVEs will even surpass your imagination

A Low Cost, High Performance, Custom-Built Switcher
Why pay for more than you really need? Every single HVS-500HS is custom-built to fit the customer's exact needs. No more extra cost for functions you'll never use and no more wasted I/O's. Take advantage of FOR-A's proven broadcast technology in a low-cost, fully-customizable, and portable One Box System.
