Set on a Single-Link 12G Infrastructure, New World Symphony Installs FOR-A 4K/UHD Production Switcher plus Wide Range of Gear Routing Switchers, Signal Processors, Integrated Control Software, Multi-Viewer, Servers, Graphics Systems and Modular Universal System Frames Chosen for Upgrade

October 17, 2019

Cypress, CA, October 17, 2019 With its live WALLCAST simulcasts and concert auditorium surrounded by an immersive projection system, the Miami-based New World Symphony (NWS) features unprecedented integration of technology into its educational, rehearsal, and performance spaces. The New World Symphony prepares graduates of top music schools for leadership roles in orchestras and ensembles around the world. It combines teaching and technical innovation in a way that brings classical music into the 21st century and makes the music accessible to everyone.

When the leaders of NWS were looking to upgrade the already top-of-the-line audio and video infrastructure within the New World Center, their Frank Gehry-designed campus three years ago, they were set on a single-link 12G infrastructure as the backbone for the overall upgrade. They met with representatives from the Miami office of FOR-A to discuss FOR-As range of 12G 4K/UHD products.

"We determined early on that our specific needs would be best served by designing our new 4K/UHD upgrade project around a single-cable 12G infrastructure," explained Clyde Scott, Director of Video Production, New World Symphony. "Most options were quad-link and 4K IP, but FOR-A was the only manufacturer to make a single-link 12G switcher large enough for our purposes. We demoed the switcher and were impressed with its capabilities and ease of use."

After that, FOR-As Director of Latin Region Sales, Mario Rodriguez and Product Specialist Bob Peterson worked closely with NWS to identify several other key pieces of equipment in the companys suite of 12G products that would work well in the new installation, including: a large 12G router, production servers, and terminal gear.

After a highly competitive review, NWS went all in with FOR-A, purchasing: a 4K/UHD production switcher, two routing switchers, 19 signal processors, integrated control software, a multi-viewer, four 12G/SDI servers, two 12G graphics systems, and nine modular universal system frames.

Among the FOR-A products selected is the recently introduced 3 M/E HANABI HVS-6000 12G-SDI production switcher. Offering 12G-SDI capability on all inputs and outputs, the 3 M/E HANABI HVS-6000 uses a single cable link. Video signals are processed throughout as a single image. The HVS-6000 is a 12 RU switcher, with a maximum of 80 inputs/32 outputs or 64 inputs/48 outputs. It also offers frame synchronization, frame buffer, 3D DVE, and 4 keyers per M/E with DVE function + 4 DSKs. The switcher has an optional board-mounting SFP connector that supports an IP interface.

In addition to the HANABI main switcher panel, NWS is integrating a smaller 12-button HVS-2120ROU switcher panel into a remote control room for use with the main electronics for simultaneous use of the HANABI resources in multiple locations.

"Were thrilled to support the New World Symphony in its incredible mission to enrich the Miami community with its classical music offerings and the organizations progressive approach to the use of technology for education and performance," said Rodriguez of FOR-A. "Everything at the New World Center is first class. Were proud to be included with such high-end company. Were confident that our equipment will more than meet their expectations, and we look forward to providing New World Symphony with our latest technology for many years to come."

NWS presents approximately 70 performances each year, many of which include immersive projections and 12 of which are presented as live simulcasts on the 7,000 square foot exterior projection fa ade of its New World Center building (WALLCAST Concerts). Inside, the concert auditorium also features a large complement of theatrical lighting, ten robotic 4K cameras and a full broadcast-style control booth, top-of-the-line audio recording and sound reinforcement equipment. Every practice space in the New World Center is wired with connections for video and audio, as well as connected by miles of fiber to support the schools robust distance learning program.

The following comprises the full FOR-A equipment rundown for NWS:
