Ascent Taps Doremi for Delay Gear

Ascent Media Network Services has purchased Doremi servers to provide time zone delay at its Asian origination facility in Singapore and the Discovery Television and Technology Center in Sterling, Va.

Fifteen Doremi MCS-2r2p video servers perform time zone delay of 30 SD video channel feeds and a Doremi V1-HD server delays a single HD video feed. The V1-HD uses JPEG2000 video compression and features independent record and play operations.

The MCS-2r2p features four independent channels; two record and two playback. Each MCS-2r2p can delay two video channels. The MCS server features MPEG-2 4:2:2 video compression up to 50 Mbps.

The delay operation can be set from the front panel or via serial RS-422 for remote operation. The Doremi servers installed by Ascent are configured with dual-redundant power supplies and external RAID5 or internal storage. The MCS Server can delay SDI, YUV, S-Video or composite video and up to eight channels of audio embedded on SDI. The V1-HD delays HD-SDI video and up to eight channels of audio.
