Chyron to use Ciprico PCI-X, PCIe RAID controller in XClyps

Chyron will integrate the Ciprico RC5252-08, an advanced RAIDCore RC5000 PCI-X- and PCI Express (PCIe)-compatible line of SAS and SATA II RAID controllers, into its new XClyps HD/SD clip server.

Ciprico’s enterprise-level RC5252-08 eight-port PCIe RAID controller will be used to extract the maximum I/O performance from the XClyps server to meet the sustained operational requirements needed for 24/7 SD and HD broadcast workflows.

XClyps enables real-time clip playback in single or dual-channel video and key. It can store up to 50 hours of SD content or up to 22 hours of HD video in a single system. The clip server will be used for news bumpers, station promos, coming ups, and to monitor background playback or any application where pristine video, key and audio playback are required.
