Dayang multi-def servers available
Dayang's VIPS 3000 range of multi-definition servers are now in production and shipping. The 3000 series, introduced at NAB in April, provides simultaneous output of HD and SD signals, while HD ingest and playout can be performed in the MPEG-I, MPEG-IBP and DVCPRO HD formats. SD ingest and broadcasting of files in DV25, DV50, MPEG-I, MPEG-IBP formats is also supported.
Dayang's VIPS 3000 multidefinition servers are available in three versions: VIPS 3412 (one input, two outputs), VIPS 3424 (two inputs, four outputs) and VIPS 3404 (four inputs, four outputs). All inputs and outputs are capable of handling HD or SD signals. The servers leverage a dual-core CPU and broadcast-quality I/O board that accepts analog or digital HD or SD inputs plus external sync. Two 1Gb/s Ethernet ports are incorporated and a separate 2Gb/s port is available as an option.
The servers can be controlled via the VDC protocol, and they can be used to capture and play HD/SD signals as well as for up- and downconversion playout. Component signals (4:2:2 and 4:2:0) are supported as well as composite, Y/C, SMPTE-259M SDI and ASI. Two stereo digital/analog audio inputs are provided plus four digital/analog stereo outputs. Audio processing is fully transparent to Dolby E and Dolby AC-3 signals.
