Avid announces AirSpeed 2.0 video server

The Avid AirSpeed 2.0 system, a multipurpose video ingest and playout server now supports two new formats: uncompressed SD and the Avid DNxHD format to facilitate HD production from capture to playout.

The new system is also available in two versions: one that includes front-panel video control and monitoring; and another that is optimized for HD workflows and remote operation, offering four times the storage capacity in place of the front-panel controls and monitor.

The system features VTR-like functionality with full remote programmability and control, and offers complete interoperability with the Avid Unity family of shared-storage solutions — including the new Unity ISIS system — as well as with Avid’s nonlinear editing systems.

In conjunction with the Avid DNxchange system, which automatically encodes HD content from cameras, switches, routers, and decks into the Avid DNxHD format, the AirSpeed 2.0 system supports a range of HD resolutions and frame rates, including 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, and 720p/59.94 converted to Avid DNxHD data rates of 145Mb/s or 120Mb/s.

The AirSpeed 2.0 system also supports standard definition formats: uncompressed, DV25, DV50, IMX30 and IMX 50.
