FOR-A Debuts MFR-3000 Routing Switcher at NAB 2015

Cypress, CA – At the NAB Show, FOR-A is debuting its new routing switcher, the MFR-3000 3G/HD/SD/ASI unit. Building on the success of the company’s larger MFR-5000 and MFR-8000 units, the 4RU MFR-3000 is an ideal solution in midsize systems where variable input/output capabilities and mixed signal formats are used. FOR-A is exhibiting the MFR-3000 along with its wide variety of video and audio production solutions at NAB in booth C5117.

Designed for mission critical broadcast facilities, the MFR-3000 routing switcher can be expanded by eight inputs or outputs modules, up to a maximum of 64-input/64-MFR-30FPoutput matrix. Operators can also use up to four inputs and four outputs for 8K facilities, as well as 16 inputs and 16 outputs at 4K, making it an ideal selection for any growing facility. The unit offers auto signal detection and provides standard support for 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, and ASI input and output.

FOR-A’s MFR-3000 offers outstanding redundancy to ensure continuous operation if problems arise. The unit provides a built-in Web server for immediate setup, eliminating the need to install software on external devices. The routing switcher can be integrated into a SNMP monitoring system to oversee various operational states and to set system failure and recovery alerts. The MFR-3000 requires easy maintenance and offers versatile crosspoint control, interface expansion units, and connectivity with other products, such as FOR-A’s HVS-2000 video switcher for input expansion. In addition to the MFR-3000 routing switcher, FOR-A is showing new video switcher, multi-viewer, signal processor, and 4K high-speed camera technology at NAB 2015.
