NAB 2021: New FOR-A 32-Channel Multi Viewer Supports Multi-Format Productions, Customized Layouts

Cypress, CA, Sept. 9, 2021 – FOR-A Corporation of America today announced the MV‑3240 multi viewer, a 32-channel, multi-format multi viewer that supports customized layouts with up to 25 windows for one 4K output. FOR-A will demonstrate the new MV-3240 at the 2021 NAB Show (Booth C4918), which runs Oct. 10-13 in Las Vegas, Nev.

The MV-3240 supports up to 16 inputs for 6G-SDI and up to 32 inputs for 3G/HD/SD-SDI, as well as HD-to-4K up-resizing. It includes five outputs for 3G/HD-SDI or one output for 12G-SDI, as well as one HDMI output that duplicates the SDI output. Cascading connections between multiple units allows users to expand the number of inputs with low latency. Customized layouts for up to 40 windows for four 2K outputs, as well as optional support for up to 16 inputs for 12G-SDI, are under development.

“Not every facility or production truck is ready to move to IP, but they still need to manage extensive SDI inputs,” said Satoshi Kanemura, president of FOR-A Corporation of America. “The compact MV-3240 offers the flexibility needed to display HD or 4K sources, as well as the ability to support multi-format productions that use both. With our powerful processing engine, you can enjoy the highest picture quality along with customized layouts.”

Built on the same 1 RU chassis as FOR-A’s recently introduced MV-1640IP multi viewer, which was designed for IP or hybrid workflows, the MV-3240 also shares many of the standard features found in other MV Series units. For example, displays can include tally, title, and time code, as well as time, timers, and information display. The MV-3240’s built-in layout manager makes it easy to create custom layouts, which can be saved and then recalled directly from the unit’s front control panel.

Up to four logos can be stored for display in title areas. Audio level display and audio monitoring output are also supported. Plus, flashing borders or error icons help identify screens with errors. An integrated M-JPEG streaming video output serves as a simple way to monitor signals outside of the control room, with users accessing the signal from any web-enabled device. The dedicated app for Windows is also offered for easy monitoring of the M-JPEG streaming video, and its pre-alarm recording allows footage to be stored on a PC HDD and reviewed when an error occurs.
