automation systems, industry-standard formats and wrappers, as well as such
creative tools as the Adobe Creative Suite.It’s available as a standalone half-RU package, integrated
into a MediaDeck 7000 chassis as an independent branding server, or integrated
into either a MediaPort 7000 or MediaDeck chassis to function with these
devices as a standalone branding server with media ingest capabilities.
