Harmonic’s latest four-channel Spectrum MediaDeck 7000 SSD integrated media server system offers the reliability, low power requirements, and lower weight of solid-state disk (SSD) storage, while providing the broadcast quality and cost-effective design of the MediaDeck 7000.
Equipped with four 480-GB SSD drives, the MediaDeck 7000 SSD provides 57 hours of 50-Mbps storage capacity. The integrated system packs up to four SD or HD video channels and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity into its compact 1-RU chassis. The flexible server system also features multiplecodec playback, up/down/ cross-conversion, and HD/SD simulcast capabilities. Featuring two-channel modularity, the system enables even the smallest broadcast and video production operations to implement robust server-based ingest and playout operations—or sophisticated filebased workflows—for a broad range of video formats.
