Grande Vitesse Systems Inc. is announcing a powerful new solution for the growing 2K and HD market. The GVS9000 4NXU Pro is a Digital Film Recorder and non-linear video Server with dual SDI offering uncompressed 2K, 4:4:4, 4:2:2 1080i/p 23.98-60 variable frames per second (fps) to 2K capture, fully redundant cluster storage. It is designed to provide the highest quality 4K playback with native direct RAW digital camera file format files as well as recording 2K RAW, 3D uncompressed during 4K 3D playback, record, edit, store, and broadcast w/16 channel audio, direct from camera, telecine, or tape deck for any studio requiring a tape-less production environment.

With built-in GVSAN the GVS90004NXU Pro provides the ultimate production tool. Its’ streamlined, open- architecture SAN and NAS storage delivers the high data rates that are required for the most intensive uncompressed 4K, 2K and HD applications in the digital video industry today. The dual 4GB Fiber Interface or 10Gbit option provides transparent, high speed, secure, shared storage for a wide variety of digital production options, including live capture, ingest, editing, and storage, with VDCP, GPIB and RS422, controlled. Best of all, there is no need to move media to and from different video servers - just plug in and broadcast with full on-air support, making it ideal for feature film production, live events, Broadcast Stations, Post Houses, 3D Effects, Trailer Houses, and much more. Users can share all live or recorded content during recording over network or SDI for immediate broadcast or preview. The internal storage delivers over 6.0Gbit/sec access for 40 hours of uncompressed HD video and audio. The GVS9000 4NXU Pro has been certified with a large number editing and retouching software so users can even start editing in both 2D and 3D while recording without the need for any conversion - just plug and play without spending hours on configuration or worrying about application and storage compatibility.

“This is an important development for users who want a high density rugged rack for their Video Server, with easy shared access to media 4K, 2K, HD and SD video applications, but were, up until now, limited to the alternatives offered by the dominant manufacturers,” said Jano Avanessian, GVS V.P. of Sales and Marketing. “GVS9000 4NXU Pro is the first product that offer such versatility, flexibility, and support for multiple 3rd party editing tools. Users can load this product in a Flypack and take it anywhere in the field and still have complete HD I/O support.”

Expansion is extremely cost effective because while GVS9000 4NXU Pro can plug in over 200 drives, you do not need to fill in all drive slots up front. Just acquire them as needed. With current drive capacities reaching over 2.0TB each, the total storage on line can exceed 400TB, without the need for expensive management tools. Support for smart park allows media that is not active to simply “park” without power consumption so it is just like having 200 tapes online and yet the retrieval time is instantaneous.

The GVS9000 4NXU Pro is designed with all recyclable materials, uses less than 430W power and operates at an extremely low noise level, even with all 32TB active. It provides the most cost effective on-line and off-line storage in today’s market place for a total cost of system with 32TB starting at $19,950-$74,950 based on specific configuration.
