For-A on an Odyssey for Insight

For-A has partnered with Uruguayan software developer Odyssey Development to produce the Insight4 multichannel video server. Also referred to as the Insight Production Server, it is a 4-channel playout system designed for use in studio and OB applications.

Insight includes a web interface facilitating control of the server from any device. Assignable user groups and a range of security settings aim to offer confidence in content protection for large-scale productions in particular. Meanwhile, a relaxed security mode is available for a simplified operation in trusted environments. Different content can be made available to different user groups and video is streamed to web clients, displaying the actual content to allow users to visualise and control Insight from a single computer screen.

Insight supports up to four SD or HD channels, or single-channel 4K, from its 1U enclosure. It includes sub-clip editing functionality for the creation of multiple clips based on in-point and out-point. Files can be ingested and sent to network locations for full workflow integration, and mixed file formats can be included in a single playlist.

When used alongside For-A’s Hanabi switchers, Insight provides a full production suite. The newest Hanabi family member – the HVS-490 3G/HD/SD video switcher – inherits many of its traits from the HVS-2000 and HVS-390HS, while adding 4K capabilities to the mix. The HVS-490 features MELite technology, which using an optional HVS-49IO card, boosts the switcher’s two M/Es to offer six M/Es worth of performance. The switcher’s capabilities are further expanded with the ability to assign FlexaKey or 2.5D DVE for the compositing up to 12 keyers.

Finally, there’s the FA-505 multichannel signal processor, which For-A has affectionately nicknamed ‘THE Processor’. It’s a frame synchroniser that enables multichannel routing for five video/inputs and the same number of outputs. The processor is 4K-ready and HDR compatible, as well as being compatible with 3G, SD-SDI and HD feeds.
