360 Systems introduces MAXX-2400
360 Systems’ new MAXX-2400 is a two-channel video recorder, a four-channel playout server and a graphics store with linked key-and-fill capability, plus 700 hours of storage time. Standard features include composite and SDI video ports, a frame synchronizer for recording wild sources and a complete set of audio formats.
Fully compatible with leading automation systems, MAXX-2400 is ideally suited as a play-to-air server, as a cache for satellite ingest, for graphics storage, in weather systems and remote trucks and for extra channels in DTV broadcast.
The file-based design of the MAXX-2400 effectively speeds production and on-air tasks. It easily exchanges MPEG-2, IMX and DV files over GigE with popular nonlinear editors like Final Cut Pro and Avid. In addition, it imports TARGA files — with their alpha channel — from many professional graphics programs.
Available in both NTSC and PAL versions, the MAXX-2400 handles content in many file formats and provides the widest possible range of connectivity.
