Cypress, CA – When Worcester State University began its most recent studio upgrade, the school was looking for video equipment to take them into the world of high definition. In the market for a cost-efficient yet feature-rich switcher to train students, the university found what it was looking for in FOR-A’s HVS-390HS video switcher.

“We’d been using a switcher that limited our production capabilities. FOR-A’s HVS-390HS allows for more creativity and functionality, so we’re able to add an extra dimension into our teachings,” explained Tom White, Assistant Director of Multimedia Services at Worcester State University. “While our FOR-A switcher is HD, we had the option to keep our remaining equipment SD if we had to for budgetary reasons. This gave us some breathing room.”

Worcester State University’s video production studio went completely high definition in November 2013. The school primarily uses the HVS-390HS switcher for educational training purposes, but it also puts the switcher to work for in-house productions, such as student television shows, and announcement and marketing productions for the university.

The university has found the ease of use and design of the HVS-390HS switcher as two considerable benefits. Some of the students who operate the switcher have never done any type of video production before, but they quickly learn the basic functions of the unit. Durability and reliability are big factors of the HVS-390HS for the university, since around 80 students work with the switcher in a given week.

“We’ve been very impressed with the high cost performance of the switcher,” White said. “We’ve also noticed that there’s a great synergy with FOR-A’s HVS-390HS in the way it fits in our studio and works with our other equipment. It took almost no effort to integrate the switcher into our system. It’s just a beautiful unit that has been a great match for our school.”
