Slomo.tv introduces RED ARROW full 4K replay and slow-motion server
Showcased at NAB 2016, RED ARROW offers four channels recording, 4 channels search and 2 channels playback with six 4K physical video ports – all in 4K 50p in a single 2RU enclosure. RED ARROW can also be used for 6-channel 4K 50p recording for non-linear editing.
Thanks to its four graphics ports RED ARROW allows four operators to work on one machine at the same time. For example, two operators work with configuration 662 (6 recording, 6 search and 2 replay channels), the other two with configuration 442 (4 recording, 4 search and 2 replay channels). While working simultaneously on one machine, each operator has their own display that can function as the main interface or in multiviewer mode.
The system interface has a built-in multiviewer that provides monitoring of input and output signals and search through four channels using one standard 1920×1080 monitor. Its SSD based array provides for storage of 266 hours / 100 Mbit HD video. The built-in DMR SATA slots can accommodate nine (9) 3.5” SATA drives that can record 18 channels in ProRes 422 and 18 Proxy SD channels or 24 channels DVCPro HD with SD Proxy.
The RED ARROW can be operated as a standalone unit and, unlike others, does not need any additional software or hardware. In 3G or HD the RED ARROW can operate with 20 channels recording and replays, while providing four physical outputs.
In 3G/HD mode the server offers 20 channels of 3G. Unlike competing products, that offer maximum 4 channel recording + PRV and PGM typically in 6RU, RED ARROW is described by Slomo.tv as “a true gamechanger in the field of high-end servers and offers functionalities never dreamed of before”.
For integration with various production environments there are two 10 GbE interfaces.
