FOR-A America announced last week an exclusive sales and service agreement with ClassX for its 2D/3D character generation and live motion graphics and playout software in North, Central, and South America.

The agreement provides broadcasters and live event producers with the ability to create and play out ClassX real-time broadcast graphics integrated with FOR-A video switchers.

“With ClassX, a premium graphics suite of solutions, our FOR-A portfolio of live production solutions becomes a complete range of best-in-class solutions,” said Hiro Tanoue, president of FOR-A America. “Adding ClassX to the FOR-A suite of live production switchers strengthens our graphics reach to end users in university, digital signage, live events, and sports production applications. We’re thrilled to offer such a powerful and cost-effective graphics creation tool.”

The FOR-A/ClassX combination will be seen at upcoming 2017 NAB Show in the FOR-A booth – #C5117 where ClassX’ graphics, 3D animation and video playout will be demonstrated on FOR-A video switchers, including our Thunderbolt™ interface collaboration.
