360 Systems introduced a new broadcast server, Image Server MAXX, at NAB2006. The server features faster FTP transfers with other servers, NLEs and network-attached storage. It also has embedded audio, remote workstation interface software, and the ability to perform MPEG-2 transfers in different forms, including MXF, IMX and D10, as well as DV formats.
The server provides exceptional speed and high level of compatibility for file-based workflows, while including base-band ports to retain compatibility with legacy broadcast equipment. It includes composite video and SDI ports, as well as analog and AES/EBU digital audio. An input frame-synchronizer allows "wild" sources from tape or satellite to be recorded. Time stamping now generates accurate as-run logs for reconciliation of playlists. An internal RAID array provides MAXX servers with up to 170 hours storage.
