New generation NEXIO Volt server showcase at CABSAT and NAB

- PRESS RELEASE
Harris Broadcast introduces its next-generation, software-based NEXIO Volt server, addressing customer needs for higher channel counts in a compact form factor, while increasing options for robust media storage. Now shipping, the company will publicly unveil the new server at the CABSAT 2013 show in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, taking place March 12-14 at the Dubai World Trade Center (Booth C7-10); and the NAB 2013 Show, taking place April 8-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth N2502).
The available automatic generation of low-resolution images during ingest provides other benefits for ingest-heavy media workflows, such as news, for low-resolution viewing, editing and conforming to high-resolution video for playout. It is also suited for bandwidth-efficient monitoring and digital asset management environments, where automatically producing low-resolution content eliminates the need to create it later — minimizing labor and removing transcoders.
Harris Broadcast also expands media storage options with the new NEXIO Volt, offering an integrated storage model; plus direct connections to Harris NEXIO Farad systems for shared storage configurations via Gigabit Ethernet or optional fiber channel interfaces. Redundant connections for both options maximize system resiliency and availability, while giving all channels instant access to all available content.
Customers can initially use internal storage and scale to shared storage systems using Harris' unique NEXIO Farad in cost-effective RAID-60 or highly scalable RAID-601 versions. The latter software-based RAID protection scheme enables users to expand shared storage bandwidth and capacity, and integrate with additional NEXIO servers, Harris Velocity editors and third-party editing systems. Furthermore, customers can integrate NEXIO Volt servers with Harris Versio integrated playout systems via file interchange or connection to the same shared storage system, blending standard ingest and playout applications with channel-in-a-box operations.
Additional benefits include 3Gb/s-capability for compliance with high-bandwidth facility upgrades; multi-lingual audio support; and back-to-back native playback of multiple codecs in any order, including MPEG-2, DV25/50/100, H.264, DNxHD and AVC-Intra.
"The marriage of highly integrated IT platforms with Harris' proven NEXIO software allows us to deliver the real-world operational benefits that our customers need today and into the future — notably increased channel density, higher reliability, forward-looking compatibility, and better connectivity across the media workflow," said Harris Morris, president, Harris Broadcast.
