FOR-A has unveiled the MV-3240, a 32-channel, multiformat multiviewer that supports customised layouts with up to 25 windows for one 4K output. It comes with 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. The multiviewer 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. Customised 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.
Built on the same 1U chassis as FOR-A’s MV-1640IP multiviewer, 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 is said to make 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. 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.
