Harris intros NEXIO XS server
The NEXIO XS server scales from two channels to well over 100 channels, thousands of hours of shared storage and hundreds of megabytes per second of IP network bandwidth-all within a single NEXIO SAN.
Harris has introduced NEXIO XS, a modular transmission server system that offers SD and HD support, integrated codecs, and DV/MPEG playout.
Housed in a single 3RU frame, NEXIO XS features all-software codec technology, integrated editing applications and front-panel access to drives.
The new system manages SD and HD content from ingest to playout. No external coders or decoders are required, no I/O-to-storage bridge devices are needed, and no third-party editing systems are necessary.
Since the system uses software-based codec technology, compression formats can be changed through standard software updates. The system connects to the NEXIO SAN, providing broadcasters with an infrastructure for producing, processing, distributing and managing SD and HD content.
