Dayang unveils new SD/HD server

Dayang has a new addition to its range of broadcast video servers, the VIPS 3000. Designed for high definition or multiformat broadcast applications, the VIPS 3000 provides simultaneous output of HD and SD signals.

HD ingest and playout can be performed in MPEG-I, MPEG-IBP and DVCPRO HD formats. SD ingest and broadcasting of files in DV25, DV50, MPEG-I, MPEG-IBP formats are also supported.

The new server is housed a compact 4U chassis and provides RAID5 data protection and support for multiple data stream file formats, including Motion-JPEG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DV, and Windows Media (VC-1). The VIPS 3000 also allows MXF file interchange and the VDCP universal control protocol, allowing easy integration with broadcast automation systems. Server status can be monitored via SNMP-protocol TCI/IP. Microsoft Windows XP is incorporated to ensure a stable operating platform and familiar user interface.

An internal broadcast-quality I/O board accepts analog or digital HD or SD inputs plus external sync and provides two analog or digital outputs (I-frame, long-GOP). VIPS 3000 can handle 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 component signals as well as composite, Y/C, SMPTE-259M SDI and ASI. Two stereo digital/analog audio inputs are provided plus four digital/analogue stereo outputs. Audio processing is fully transparent to Dolby-E and Dolby AC-3 signals.
