Tightrope Media Systems releases Cablecast SX video servers
Tightrope Media Systems has released the Cablecast SX 2, Cablecast SX 4 and Cablecast SX LE video servers. The video servers are all multiformat capable, playing back MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DV25, DVCAM, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50, Windows Media, QuickTime and H.264.
The Cablecast SX 2 and Cablecast SX 4 video servers both encode and decode MPEG-2 in both 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 profiles at up to 50Mb/s, as well as encode DV25. Both servers also feature composite and SDI outputs as well as embedded audio on the SDI output and balanced XLR connectors for the analog output. The Cablecast SX LE is a lower cost version of the Cablecast SX 2.
Each server includes Cablecast Station Automation software that schedules and controls all playout hardware including DVD and tape decks, downstream keying, routing switchers and Tightrope’s Carousel Bulletin Board. The Cablecast SX servers are also completely integrated with Tightrope’s Cablecast SX Live streaming media server and the Cablecast SX VOD media server for Internet video on demand.
