Dalet Digital Media Systems is announcing new configurations for the Dalet Brio servers that offer broadcasters tremendous flexibility for all types of ingest, production and playout workflows at NAB 2013, which will be held in Las Vegas April 8-11.
The Brio servers can now be scaled to a maximum of 12 ports in a single server, through a four-port extension board. When combined with the range of Dalet or third-party tools, the Dalet Brio servers provide even greater versatility with more improvements for workflows in news, sports, studio production and MAM, says Raoul Cospen, director of marketing and business development, Dalet.
Dalet Brio units are designed to ingest and playout broadcast quality video in SD and HD formats. These servers are built on IT-standard components and delivered in a compact 2RU chassis with a choice of inputs and outputs (up to 12 simultaneous channels) and storage combinations (local or direct connection to SAN). The “Ingest Once, Write Many” feature of the Dalet Brio helps operators optimize their overall infrastructure while providing reliability and high performance, says Cospen.
All Dalet Brio servers support broadcast quality video in a wide range of codecs, including DV25, DV50, DVCPRO 25 and 50, DVCPRO HD, IMX, XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX, AVC-Intra 50-100, Apple ProRes, DNxHD, and others. Dalet Brio servers can play any supported files, including a mix of SD and HD, on the same timeline.
Dalet Brio allows for on-the-fly cross-up and down-conversion of the video signal, as well as aspect ratio modifications. Brio also natively includes graphic capabilities for simple branding with bugs/logo insertion, text crawlers or animation. For more info go to www.dalet.com .
