(Miami, Florida--March 10, 2009) FOR-A Latin America, Inc, a division of FOR-A Corporation leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, announces the sale of two VPS-715 Ginga switchers through VideoMedia in Chile. VideoMedia, based in Santiago, Chile, worked with FOR-A to integrate one switcher for use at “Camara de Diputados” House of Representatives TV network.

The “Camara de Diputados” is a television network whose main objective is to broadcast sessions of the Chilean Parliament, commission meetings, press conferences, activities of the presidency and cultural sessions. Deputy Sessions are aired throughout the day, live.

The second VPS-715 has been installed into a mobile unit designed by VideoMedia for Accionmedia Television. Accionmedia Television’s mobile unit is equipped with five Hitachi triax version cameras with Canon lenses as well as connections for two additional cameras. Accionmedia’s Mobile Unit provides mobile production services to a variety of companies such as Air Channel TV, Cable Channel TV, Producers of TV, and other companies.

The switchers chosen by VideoMedia ideally suited the needs of the Chilean market, according to Claudia Oyarce, Project Engineer of VideoMedia in Chile: “Broadcasters here are becoming more familiar with FOR-A’s products. We consider FOR-A’s products to be of the highest quality. VideoMedia is very happy with the equipment we’ve installed and are currently considering purchasing more products from FOR-A in the coming months. The quality of their equipment is what stands out, but sales are increasing in part because FOR-A offers us the support we need to continue growing their customer base.”

“We consider these two purchases from major players in the Chilean broadcast industry offer evidence of FOR-A’s growing presence in the market,” said Pedro Silvestre, FOR-A Regional Sales Manager Latin America and Caribbean. “VideoMedia’s reputation and extensive experience in the market are first rate. The fact that they have selected our equipment for their clients is a major testament to our product quality and reliability. We expect a long fruitful relationship with them in this region.”
