360 Systems – MAXX-2420-EX

360 Systems' High Definition 2420-EX sets a new standard among broadcast servers. Now, get four video channels, up to 16 Terabytes of storage, and a full set of server tools, all in a compact, two rack-space design.

Four High Definition Channels

The 2420-EX can play four HD video streams at once, or it can record two and play two others—and simultaneously ingest content via Ethernet. It’s also a graphics store with linked key-and-fill capability. Standard features include HD-SDI video I/O with frame sync, so it can handle wild sources like tape, cameras and satellite feeds. Audio formats include embedded audio, and options for AES/EBU or balanced +4 analog.

JPEG 2000 Quality Imaging

When image quality has to be high and cost manageable, JPEG 2000 is a first choice. Its wavelet-based coding is a leading format for new cameras and production, with an I-frame structure that makes editing easy. JPEG 2000 is a growing standard for sports, and the sole format in digital cinema. 360 Systems offers JPEG-2000 at bandwidths to suit every level of image quality.

Managing Today’s Workflows

The 2420-EX supports file-based work-flow over Gigabit Ethernet, using affordable, real-time transcoding from Ipera and Telestream. It’s file compatible with Grass Valley’s Edius® NLE, with Infinity JPEG 2000 MXF. The 2420-EX is well suited as a play-to-air server, as a cache for satellite ingest, a graphics store, and in remote trucks for sports. It operates with VDCP automation and Odetics controllers.
