The latest addition to the Arrow series of broadcast production and replay servers is now available to the public.
The updates, which came in early April at the 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas, include a 2U rack space footprint, six recording channels with simultaneous search on all channels, and two playback channels with transition effects.
One of the servers from Arrow manufacturer Slomo.tv can be used as a seven recording channel replay system.
“The servers are based on our successful server platform, with eight bi-directional 3G/HD/SD SDI video ports, which makes it possible to remotely upgrade the basic 442 model to a 662 configuration,” notes Slomo.tv CEO Michael Gilman.
The Arrow II 662 model provides six recording channels with simultaneous search on all channels and two playback channels with transition effects. If necessary, the 662 server can be used as a seven recording channel replay system.
Arrow II provides a DMR option for direct recording in NLE file formats.
This option includes an external 1U device that records video on standard 3.5” SATA hard drives installed in four racks, enabling the recorded video to be used immediately for NLE. The server also has 10 GbE interface, which allows recording of NLE files on any Network Attached Storage (NAS).
