FOR-A Processors Chosen for Political Conventions


FOR-A_FA-505_ConventionFOR-A Corporation said a major television network installed four new FA-505 processors to feed a large video display wall comprised on several monitors in a studio. The project was specifically designed for coverage of the political conventions.

While the FA-505 is often used as a general frame sync, it is equipped with an array of essential functions used in video production that allow multi-channel routing – 5 inputs/5 outputs. In this case, however, the FA-505s are being used to feed the in studio monitors of the video wall looking for a 1080p source. Because the network facility uses 1080i as their standard format, the monitors need to be converted from 1080i to 1080p (HD to 3G) for better image quality with no degradation.

“The FA-505 is a complete toolbox for any video production scenario and is ideal for 4K applications as well,” said Jay Shinn, FOR-A VP of the Americas. “We have been told many times over, that the FA-505 has been extremely reliable and very easy to use.”
