For the first time in four years, FOR-A will exhibit at “InterBEE 2023.” They will have a large booth at Exhibition Hall 5, Booth No. 5412.
With the main theme of “Find Your Next Innovation,” For-A will introduce products in three broad categories: “MoIP Solutions,” “Cloud Solutions,” and “Presentations.”
MoIP solutions include software-defined products, studio sub, file-based production, and network management solutions. Cloud solutions include remote live production that links data centers outside the venue, non-linear editing, and cloud production environments for caption production. They will exhibit a variety of products and solutions that can help save labor and automate production sites. For-A will also exhibit all-in-one products, archive solutions, and imported products.
For-A at InterBee – Cloud Solutions
Remote live production
Cloud console ceacaa:
The Ceacaa arovides a “console function” that allows users to run caption production and editing applications on the cloud. High-speed screen transfer technology creates a comfortable production environment.
NLE on ceacaa: Non-linear editing is possible on the cloud. Compatible with Adobe PremierePro or EDIUS Cloud.
Preview on ceacaa: Instantly check the editing screen and preview screen of NLE on ceacaa from a remote location. Detailed editing instructions, instant confirmation, and confirmation of completed materials are now possible using “cloud preview.”
VWS on ceacaa: Collaborate with the on-premises VWS caption production system within the broadcasting station. Create, proofread, check, and preview captions on the cloud using the same interface and operability as in-house.
Wasabi collaboration (VGI): Share and edit editing materials with MediaConcierge® in an on-premises environment. This is by using AWS S3 compatible cloud storage provided by Wasabi Technologies, a FOR-A affiliate company.
Collaboration with NTT West Japan Group:
In collaboration with NTT West Japan Group, FOR-A started providing remote editing services from the West Japan area.
Collaboration with NTT Data Center:
With the cooperation of the NTT West Group, FOR-A products are installed within the data center. By controlling from the Makuhari Messe venue, on-premises and cloud environments can be seamlessly linked. A real demonstration will be done by FOR-A at InterBEE venue.
