New compact server from Harris at CABSAT 2013

Broadcast & Playout News Press Releases Solutions 0

Harris Broadcast introduces its next-generation, software-based NEXIO Volt server, addressing customer needs for higher channel counts in a compact form factor, while increasing options for robust media storage.

The company will publicly unveil the new server at the CABSAT 2013 show in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, taking place March 12-14 at the Dubai World Trade Center (Booth C7-10); and the NAB 2013 Show, taking place April 8-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth N2502).

Leveraging the latest processor, storage and connectivity technology, the new NEXIO Volt server platform, like its predecessor, offers a 1RU package with low operating costs and high levels of resilience and reliability.  However, it doubles the number of available record ports with four bi-directional HD channels (up to eight SD), and offers exceptional overall channel density for ingest and playout operations.  Its software-based codecs and software license keying provide flexibility, including custom features and capabilities to suit users’ exacting needs.

The available automatic generation of low-resolution images during ingest provides other benefits for ingest-heavy media workflows, such as news, for low-resolution viewing, editing and conforming to high-resolution video for playout.  It is also suited for bandwidth-efficient monitoring and digital asset management environments, where automatically producing low-resolution content eliminates the need to create it later — minimizing labor and removing transcoders.

Harris Broadcast also expands media storage options with the new NEXIO Volt, offering an integrated storage model; plus direct connections to Harris® NEXIO Farad™ systems for shared storage configurations via Gigabit Ethernet or optional fiber channel interfaces.  Redundant connections for both options maximize system resiliency and availability, while giving all channels instant access to all available content.
