360 Systems to Show Enhancements to Image Server Line
will unveil new and expanded features for its Image Server product line of video servers at NAB2005.
The new features include Advanced Playlisting software, a 1.6 TB drive array with 170 hours of storage, embedded audio, remote-location of the server GUI and built-in frame sync.
The new Advanced Playlisting software provides clear, on-screen presentation and a highly intuitive user interface that enables users to quickly build and edit commercial breaks, news rundowns and clip lists. Available as a new standard feature of the Image Server line, Advanced Playlist features include:
- Drag and drop list building and editing
- Editing while running
- On-the-fly use of Pause, Skip, Hold and Next functions
- Six programmable GPI output events for compatibility with switchers and CGs and
- Programmable time-of-day start.
All events are recorded in a daily "as-run" log for export.
In addition, the Image Server line now features embedded audio for broadcasters transporting audio within the SDI video stream. A new frame sync feature makes Image Servers compatible with satellite receivers, tape machines and other non-genlocked video sources. The Image Server line can now receive FTP transfers of video and graphics content from desktop workstations and accepts a wide range of file formats without the need for additional file conversion gear.
360 Systems will be in Booth SU11011.
