Cypress, CA – When the Communication Arts Department at the Long Island campus of the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) began the process of upgrading its studio to HD last year, the school looked for a reliable, cost-effective switcher. NYIT uses video production for hands-on classroom training and for show production for its global digital network, so the video switcher had to be easy to use and flexible for a variety of production scenarios. The school selected FOR-A’s HVS-390HS switcher, which has proven an ideal fit since its installation last September.

“Our 2 M/E HVS-390HS is a cost-efficient unit that provides NYIT with a variety of features, including extensive DVE and keyer options on each channel, and a variety of multi-viewing and routing capabilities built right into the switcher,” said Herb Savran, NYIT’s Chief Engineer of the Communication Arts Department. “The switcher gives us the flexibility we need to produce a variety of fast-changing shows. We love the light-up buttons and alphanumeric display over the keys and the ability to easily reconfigure settings.”

NYIT’s global digital network, Globesville, allows students to leverage the power of social media and engage with students and alumni from across the world. Students at NYIT rely on FOR-A’s HVS-390HS to produce online shows about sports, news, and pop culture. Roundtable discussions with participants from around the world, utilizing Skype and FaceTime technology, is just one way that NYIT leverages the switcher’s flexibility.

The HVS-390HS switcher is also used in classroom settings to train and educate students. NYIT has found the ease of setting up and configuring the switcher as an aid in catering to its different classes and programs.

“Not only are we very pleased with the switcher itself, but we have been overwhelmed by the service from FOR-A,” explained Savran. “Our sales manager, Jay Shinn, has been extremely supportive and proactive in making sure we’re happy with the product. I’ve had over 25 years of experience in using FOR-A equipment, and they’ve always been a reliable technology provider with a track record of great products and support.”
