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.
