Pro-Bel rolls out Morpheus ICE
Pro-Bel has launched Morpheus ICE (Integrated Content Engine), a standalone automation and master control system in a single 3RU box.
Based on its Morpheus automation and playout technology, Morpheus ICE supports a wide range of SD and HD video file formats, thus removing the transcode bottleneck. It also features at least 1TB of internal RAID storage, as well as connection to external network attached storage (NAS). This internal capacity equates to at least 100 hours of DV25, devoted to caching media for playout.
A fully featured mixer is included. It offers support for four external video inputs for live sources as well as fades, mixes and wipes from internal sources. In addition ICE can control an external Pro-Bel router for further source selection, and manage audio voiceovers using either embedded audio or the 16 discrete AES/EBU audio inputs. ICE can import and store graphical material (logos/bugs) and layer them onto the output stream.
