The Spectrum X software-based media server supports a wide range of SD and HD formats up to 1080p (3G) and Ultra HD. All the functionality is available through license keys, resulting in a flexible system that allows the easy addition of new codecs, CIaB function, IP I / O and among other advanced functions.
By integrating SDI and IP I / O in the same chassis, Spectrum X also facilitates migration to IP playback workflows, allowing the baseband transition of the stations at their own pace.
Spectrum X combines file entry, baseband, and transport with integrated channel playback capabilities, including graphics, branding, DVE, and live switching from compressed baseband and IP sources.
This solution can work as CiaB or as part of a shared storage infrastructure. It has great interoperability because when configured as an independent server, it receives and plays from the shared MediaGrid storage. This configuration results in a highly scalable and optimized Ethernet-based shared storage system for digital media workflows with virtually unlimited number of channels.
