Gee Broadcast premiered two new versions of its server family at IBC. The Geevs SD and MR use the familiar and trusted client/server architecture of existing Geevs servers. The hardware acts as a platform for a variety of clients. These include AutoRun for clip list playout, EZ Delay for time shifting using minimal storage, Multicam recording, Live studio playback and Archive.
Additional clients are designed to facilitate management and control of Geevs servers and their content such as Link for automation control, Replicate for mirroring and Translate.
For SD operations, Geevs SD brings improved performance and a lower cost. Fast cue and play with support for DV25, MJPEG and MPEG-2 are featured along with the comprehensive cache of Geevs software tools developed over previous generations. Offering a wide range of applications, Geevs SD is easily integrated with existing systems and can be configured with up to four channels in and out.
The Geevs MR multi-definition, multi-channel ingest and playout server is designed to handle any content whether HD or SD. The architecture is scaleable and designed to work independently or as part of a mass-distribution or capture facility. Storage options include support for SATA, SCSI, or Fibre Channel storage. While purpose-designed for tight integration with Lightworks’ Alacrity and Touch NLE’s, Geevs MR is compatible with almost any editing system.
