Grande Vitesse Systems Announces Release of the GVS9000 2XU 422 VTR
The GVS9000 2XU 422 VTR integrated media server delivers the highest broadcast quality video with mission-critical reliability in a convenient and cost-effective package. GVS 2XU 422 combines single video channels, Fibre Channel, and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity with hardware level secure RAID storage in a compact 2U rack space.
The GVS9000 2XU 422 includes 4 internal hot-swappable enterprise-class SATAII disk drives for content storage, local internal ingest and playback. It supports single channels of 10-bit Uncompressed RAW HD for the high-definition video I/O at up to 1,400 Mbps, or standard-definition video I/O at up to 100 Mbps, while at the same time handling IP-based file transfer traffic in and out of the system. Video I/O modules and redundant power supplies are also hot-swappable providing uninterrupted operation.
Dual Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for asynchronous playback or file transfer and support of FTP, SMB and the Apple® File Sharing Protocol, provide simple, standardized file movement techniques for all your MPEG and web streaming projects or areas in production that don't have Fibre access. Even the smallest broadcast and programming operations can implement the server-based ingest and playout operations or sophisticated file-based workflows in RAW Uncompressed or a broad range of compressed video formats.
The use of Fibre Channel RAID6 storage ensures that the system continues to operate at the speed of 3Gbit/sec., even in the event of the simultaneous failure of any number of the disk drives. In addition, the 2XU422 VTR offers Dual Fibre Channel connectivity allowing media transfer of 4Gbit/sec Fibre speed as well as connectivity to a standard SAN storage. In addition, with the Dual Fibre Channel ingested content is stored in a centralized location without having to move data in between media servers. The content can also be edited during ingest. This allows for greater productivity and reliability, while also offering extreme cost savings.
Delivering this high level of performance in a fully integrated system, GVS 2XU 422 establishes a new line of compact, high quality, versatile, professional grade, multi-channel media servers.
