for a infocomm

FOR-A will highlight a turnkey XR package designed for educators at InfoComm 2024 this year. The company says the all-in-one Elitium XR system from FOR-A partner ClassX will be offered with a three-year maintenance agreement with unlimited support and software updates, as well as 20 hours of training. A real-time, multi-camera tracking workstation, Elitium provides a cost-effective way to create virtual studios and augmented/mixed reality production. It is particularly suited for green screen studios and can be used with LED walls.

Here’s a video of the Elitium XR system we shot at InfoComm 2024:

“Based on its price point, ease of use and expansive feature set, Elitium is an ideal entry point for educators to teach students how to create XR-enriched content and for campus stations to add the creativity of virtual production to their programming,” said Satoshi Kanemura, president, FOR-A America. “It makes graphic playout easy, users can change data and assets on the fly and multiple inputs are automatically tracked. Elitium is a complete, real-time system with very high-end output. And it doesn’t require the user to choose from complicated options or software versions. We can’t wait to show it off at InfoComm!”

Now shipping, FOR-A says the new HVS-190S/190I NDI-compatible video switcher is another part of FOR-A’s live production ecosystem that will also be on FOR-A’s InfoComm 2024 stand. The HVS-190 series supports NDI high-bandwidth and NDI HX input and output and marks the expansion of the HVS switcher series. It is a one M/E version of FOR-A’s flagship HVS-490 video switcher and comes standard with 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI interfaces.
According to the company, the HVS-190 series features frame synchronization and processing amplification on all

inputs and is available in two models. The HVS-190S, with a control panel separate from the main unit, comes with eight inputs/five outputs, and is expandable to 20 inputs/11 outputs. The HVS-190I is an integrated control panel/main unit video switcher with the same standard I/O configuration as the HVS-190S and is expandable to 16 inputs/9 outputs.

FOR-A will be located at booth W2821 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas during the InfoComm show.
