SeaChange introduces MediaClient family with CIFS support

SeaChange International introduced the SeaChange MediaClient family of broadcast I/O subsystems, which embrace the Common Internet File System (CIFS).

The first products in the MediaClient family are MPEG-2/DV-based video codecs designed to support recording, playout and workflow regardless of video image format, file type or compression scheme.

The new CIFS-based client/server architecture leverages SeaChange’s Broadcast MediaLibrary (BML), which provides fault-resilient storage, independent of the image format, compression standard and file type. The BML 24000e is now available as a high-performance CIFS server, complemented by SeaChange’s new software-based MediaClient Codecs. The codecs couple real-time, broadcast-quality I/O and high-quality MPEG-2 and DV coding with CIFS storage access over Gigabit IP networks.

SeaChange’s MediaClient (mcl) Codecs support MXF, QuickTime and AVI (DV) file formats and MPEG-2 program stream and transport file formats. The MediaClient Codecs eliminate compression transcoding by supporting back-to-back playout of MPEG-2, IMX, DV-25 and DV-50, and H.264, Windows Media 9 and JPEG2000 compression standards. Both HD and SD television are supported.
