Cache-Media unveils next generation video servers
The HARDATA .TV-manufactured range is said to address the need for multiple format delivery with key features including live input, simple import of graphics and text, and native playout of files.
Stuart Cameron, managing director of Cache-Media, exclusive HARDATA.TV distributor for Europe, comments: “We are convinced that HARDATA .TV is the perfect choice for cost-effective broadcasting applications including local TV.
“For too long people have spoken about a Channel-in-a-Box solution. What they really need is a fully integrated playout server with asset management. People need more content to more platforms fast. With HARDATA .TV we have seen directly that from delivery to being on air can take less than a day.”
John Golding, director of systems at Cache-Media, adds: “The heritage of HARDATA. TV as a television and radio automation supplier is well-known and respected. Coupling that with the use of an Enterprise class server will provide the level of reliability the market requires.
”We were particularly impressed with the system’s ability to play out HD and SD video in any format in the same playlist.”
