Main Features
Supports HD/SD Mixed Input
Up/Down/Cross Converter
With its simple panel operation, the HVS-4000 lets you switch
between HD and SD signals and the various HD formats. With the
optional up/down/cross converter card installed, the system can
support mixed input from HD and SD devices. With the switcher
alone, it is possible to perform mixed processing without concern
for the differences between HD and SD signals.
The HVS-4000 allows the option of adding an up/down/cross converter*.
With a frame synchronizer, asynchronous video can be input as is (up to
four channels with this option).
Supported formats:
HD-SDI: 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 1080/30PsF, 1080/29.97PsF,
1080/25PsF, 1080/24PsF, 1080/23.98PsF,
720/60p, 720/59.94p, 720/50p
SD-SDI: 525/60, 625/50
Supports 3 Gbps Signal
In addition to HD and SD signals, support for the next-generation
signal standard 3 Gbps is an available option.
*No frame rate converter function provided.

MV. A side panel and safety marker can be added to the AUX
output.
The HVS-4000 also comes with four utility bus channels per M/E.
These channels can be used for keyer external mask, wipe border,
a background needed for M/E bus P-in-P, sources for keyers that
do not have a dedicated bus, side panel, and local still.

keyers are standard on the 2 M/E model, 11 keyers are standard
on the 2.5 M/E model and 12 keyers are standard on the 3 M/E
model (P/P line has 3 keyers).
Two keyers can optionally be
added to each M/E. This lets
you expand to up to 12 keyers
on the 2 M/E model, 15 keyers
on the 2.5 M/E model and 18
keyers on the 3 M/E model.
AUX Bus Dedicated DSK
As an additional option, you can add a dedicated DSK to the AUX
bus. Allowing you to do superimposing on each AUX output.
Combiner Function
HVS-4000 can be added with the independent combiner function
besides the M/E function. For example, the combiner function can be
used by installing the HVS-4000 in the stage prior to the M/E process
and adding DVE to the input signals in order to provide multiple
P-in-P video via a single channel (pre-combiner function). It can also
be used by installing the HVS-4000 in the stage subsequent to the
M/E process and utilizing it for CG composition (L-shaped left side
and bottom of the screen).

Color Corrector
Clip drive unit
Six still stores (Global Still) that can be selected for all buses come
standard. The switcher can be expanded up to eight still stores.
Furthermore, four more dedicated still stores (Local Still) can be
added in each M/E, bringing the number of still stores to a total of
12. A logo animation function, is also provided. A motion logo which
loops a succession of still images.
Also, uncompressed video can be
stored and used for operations
such as CG wipes.
A full-featured, optional two-channel color corrector can be added
for inputs. This allows color correction for any two input channels.
The color corrector option can also be added for each bus.
Because the color corrector option for four channels per single
output card can be added for the AUX bus, this feature is useful
for suppressing illegal signal outputs and color adjustment in
retaking monitor.
An optional motion picture playback unit can be connected. With
one unit, it is possible to record and play back up to one hour of
HD full motion video (30 minutes in the case of V+K), which can
be used for all types of animation, including CG wipes and
opening CG. When an optional clip drive is connected, the clip
function using the still store video path can be added.
To achieve CG wipes with ordinary video switchers, it is typical to
make the connection settings to an external device by using a
switcher’s timeline function to put together the key frames. But
with FOR-A’s HVS-4000 HANABI Series, all you need to do is
make the setting as a wipe function to achieve a CG wipe that
connects to auto-transition. This unit, which we offer as an
external add-on option, supports
video signal input and file
transfer (MXF files) from a PC by
Ethernet.

DVEs
2.5D DVEs and 3D DVEs can be added simultaneously. Up to six
channels can be added to the 2.5D DVE, whereas up to eight channels
(in 2-channel units) can be added to the 3D DVE. A total of up to 14
channels of DVEs can be added. All DVEs can process V+K on one
channel. The number of channels does not decrease even when the
flying key effect is used. 3D DVEs use the same architecture as in the
HVS-5000 series. This allows DVE effects with high image quality and
high functionality. HVS-4000 has adopted a conventional built-in DVE
system (LINE DVE) for four channels and external DVE system (INPUT
DVE) for the remaining four channels. This makes it possible to select
advanced 3D DVE video as a single body of material from multiple
buses. The use of DVE widens the scope of creative video
broadcasting, for example, using 2.5D DVE for
Picture in Picture (P-in-P),
3D DVE for P-in-P and
transitions, and 3D DVE
for video material
production added with
digital video effects.
Balanced mode:
For color correction in RGB
signals.
Differential mode:
For color correction without
upsetting the white balance.
Sepia mode:
For converting the colors into
a monotone.
LINE DVE
DVEs can be applied to each buses for enabling transitions for
the image using wipe or mix. This makes it easy to set
picture-in-picture and other effects.
Macro Function
The HVS-4000 Comes with macro function to record and play
back complex operating procedures with just one button. This lets
you easily register a series of operations and then perform
complicated operations with one push of a button. For example,
you could send a play command to a VTR, then switch to the VTR
channel after waiting a set amount of time before footage
playback begins.
Sequence Function
Allows you to register changes in parameters as a sequence. By
using the optional GUI software, a timeline can be displayed,
making it easy to make corrections or changes. Up to 100
sequences can be registered.
Event Memory
HVS-4ECD
External Device Control
Enables integrated control of various external devices such as
routing switcher, VTR, DDR, clip server and multi-viewer. Video
names on the switcher control panel can be changed in
accordance with crosspoint
switchers on the router. The
switcher tally information can be
also sent to other devices such
as a multiviewer through the
router with video names.
Stereoscopic 3D
With FOR-A’s optional stereoscopic 3D function, you can handle
the left and right video from a stereo camera as a pair. This lets
you switch or invert video, add delays, adjust parallax and more.
The M/E count does not change even if used as a stereoscopic 3D
switcher. (The number of keyers that can be 1 handled on one
M/E will vary.)
Stereoscopic Camera
The HVS-4000 comes with event memory capable of registering
all types of parameter settings. Up to 1000 events can be
registered.
