Two world premieres promised by slomo.tv for NAB
NAB in Las Vegas will see the world premiere of two new 4K 50/60p slow-motion replay servers. Slomo.tv will show at its booth SL6321 the RED ARROW and BlackJack 4K — two new product family members. RED ARROW offers four channels recording, four channels search and two channels playback with six 4K physical video ports – all in 4K 50/60p in a single 2RU enclosure. BlackJack 4K offers three recording, three search and two playback in 4K 50p/4K 60p in a single 4RU enclosure.
RED ARROW has 24 reversible 3G/HD SDI video ports: Due to its four graphical ports RED ARROW allows for four operators working on one machine together at the same time — for example, two operators work with configuration 662 (6 recording, 6 search and 2 playback channels), the other two with configuration 442 (4 recording, 4 search and 2 playback channels). While working on one machine, simultaneously each operator has its own display that can function as main interface or multiviewer.
The system interface has a built-in multiviewer that provides monitoring of input and output signals and search using one standard 1920×1080 computer monitor. The SSD based RED ARROW provides storage of 266 hours 100Mbit 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.
BlackJack in 3G/HD mode provides up to 30 channels (12 recording, 12 search and six playback). Up to three replay operators can work on four different channels each (slomo and highlights) with independent crossfade outputs.
Unique to the BlackJack 4K is its capability to search and mark clips on three 4K channels simultaneously and to playback two channels 4K with FX. For monitoring, 4K BlackJack uses standard computer monitors for displaying the interface with built-in multiviewer – so there is no need for several 4K/4x3G SDI monitors.
Its SSD storage is big enough to record 266 hrs at 100 Mbit/s HD.
DMR is available on all 12 input channels. Slomo.tv offers this unique technology capable to write NLE native files of all channels live during recording, thus providing all content without delay for further processing.
BlackJack 4K supports a large set of codecs: MJPEG, ProRes 422, DVCPro HD, AVID DNxHD, XDCAM 50Mbit, MPEG2, MPEG4, H264, DVCPro50, DVCProHD, DV25, IMX and containers natively compatible with Apple Final Cut, Avid, Adobe Premiere, GVG Canopus. All slomo.tv servers are delivered with a specialised
