At NAB2007, Omneon will launch MediaDeck — a compact, integrated media server system based on the technology of the company's flagship Spectrum media server. MediaDeck integrates media storage, system management, GigE connectivity and SD or HD video I/O modules in a 2RU package.
MediaDeck storage consists of eight 500GB SATA disk drives with dual-parity RAID, providing 3TB of useable storage with protection in the event of two drive failures. The system also features modular I/O components, so users can mix and match modules to fit their needs. SD modules for ingest and playout (up to six channels per unit) and HD ingest modules (up to two channels per unit) are immediately available. The company plans to release additional modules that will add further ingest and playout channels and formats.
