To commemorate the appointment of systems integrator Tegas Broadcast & Multimedia as its distributor in Malaysia, FOR-A recently conducted a 4K seminar in the country.
At the heart of the demonstrations were FOR-A’s HVS-6000 large-scale production switcher and the HVS-490 compact switcher, both of which are ready for 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) over 12G-SDI, offering a practical and cost-effective transition to higher resolutions.
Also displayed were a range of FOR-A 4K capable production tools, including multi-viewers, routers, infrastructure products and the new SOAR-A customisable IP platform.
Harry Yee, Executive Director, Tegas Broadcast & Multimedia, said, “Malaysia is well established in HD production and delivery, and naturally the major studios and broadcasters are looking towards 4K. FOR-A has an excellent reputation as a manufacturer of highly reliable and easy-to-use products, which show a clear upgrade path towards 4K.
“The [FOR-A] production switchers are powerful, flexible and intuitive to use. Bringing these and other products from the FOR-A family together with world-leading equipment like Canon lenses and Ikegami cameras means we can deliver the highest quality systems to our users, ready to face all future challenges.”
FOR-A’s 4K system is complemented by Canon 4K lenses and Ikegami 4K cameras to produce a complete production system.
Robert Shen, Regional Sales Manager, FOR-A, added, “As a business we have always embraced partnerships where we can work with other vendors to really meet the customers’ needs. Production system cameras are perfect partners for our switching and signal processing.
“Tegas recognises this and is actively working to show producers and broadcasters in the region how they can build a transition path, creating excellent HD today and ready for even better quality in the immediate future.
“We really look forward to achieving great things in the important Malaysian market in partnership with Tegas.”
