Ross launches SoftMetal video servers

Ross Video has launched its 3000 and 4000 Series SoftMetal video servers — integrated media servers that come with I/O and storage contained in a compact 3RU package.

The 3000 Series is available in either SD or multiformat (SD/HD) versions. It supports up to eight simultaneous record/play channels in SD and up to four simultaneous record/play channels in HD. The 3000 uses SATA drives and offers up to 14TB of media storage.

The 4000 Series is a premium server-class platform built with higher internal bandwidth and processing power. It is a versatile server that supports up to eight simultaneous record/play channels in HD. The 4000 features high-performance SAS drives with a total capacity of up to 6.3 TB and is designed to support 1080p50 and 1080p60 3Gb/s operation.

Shipments of both the new SoftMetal 3000 and 4000 Series servers will begin in March.
