New FOR-A IVS-200 Video Stabilizer and Automatic Video Optimizer improves Live, Recorded Footage


FOR-A, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, will introduce the IVS-200 Video Stabilizer and Automatic Video Optimizer at the 2010 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nev., April 12-15 (Booth C5219). The new stabilizer is the latest member of FOR-A’s family of video stabilizers for image stabilization, and is ideal for improving unsteady video for security and surveillance applications.

The IVS-200 corrects any video source

The IVS-200 corrects any video source, from live feeds to VCR tapes and DVDs, stabilizing shaky video in real time during capture or video that has already been recorded. While other video stabilizers correct vertical and horizontal shaking, the IVS-200 also corrects rotation and diagonal shaking. In addition, the Auto Video Optimizer (AVO) component makes automatic corrections of video to appropriate levels.

“In today’s security applications, the right technology can make all the difference in protecting life and property,” said Mr. Hiro Tanoue, President, FOR-A Corporation of America. “By correcting camera shake in two dimensions, our new IVS-200 is an ideal tool to help law enforcement analyze recorded video for potential evidence or correct poorly shot live video.”

Suited for a variety of applications, the IVS-200 is compact and features simple “plug-and-play” operation. Other functions include analog composite I/0, correction area masking function, and time and title display.

The IVS-200 will be available May 2010.
