360 Systems introduces Image Server MAXX
The MAXX server includes an input frame synchronizer to allow "wild" sources from tape or satellite to be recorded.
At NAB2006, 360 Systems unveiled Image Server MAXX, a new broadcast server -that provides a complete set of advanced features needed in broadcast facilities.
New standard equipment includes faster FTP transfers with other servers, NLEs and network-attached storage; embedded audio, Remote Workstation Interface software, and an ability to perform MPEG-2 transfers in different forms, including MXF, IMX and D10, as well as DV formats.
The MAXX server provides compatibility for file-based workflows, while including base-band ports to retain compatibility with legacy broadcast equipment. It includes both composite video and SDI ports and AES/EBU digital audio as well as balanced +4 analog audio on XLR connectors. Additionally, an input frame synchronizer allows "wild" sources from tape or satellite to be recorded, while outputting genlocked content. Time stamping generates accurate as-run logs for reconciliation of playlists. An internal RAID array provides MAXX servers with up to 170 hours storage.
