Spectrum MediaDeck 7000 Features
Built for Real-Time Performance
As part of the Spectrum family of media servers, MediaDeck 7000 is optimized to satisfy the demanding reliability and performance requirements of broadcast operations. Unlike media servers that rely on PC computing platforms, MediaDeck 7000 leverages IT technologies and is purpose-built for the broadcast industry. As a result, MediaDeck 7000 users benefit from the price/performance gains driven by general IT technology enhancements without compromising mission-critical 24/7 broadcast operations.
MediaDeck 7000 supports up to four channels of SD or HD video I/O at up to 100 Mbps, while simultaneously handling IP-based file transfer traffic in and out of the system. By delivering this high level of performance in a fully integrated system, MediaDeck 7000 establishes a new price-per-channel benchmark in media servers.
Compatible With Hundreds of Software Applications
MediaDeck 7000 uses the same time-proven, robust code base as Harmonic Spectrum media servers, allowing it to work out of the box with all applications supported by Spectrum systems. MediaDeck 7000 uses a standard implementation of high-speed Gigabit Ethernet for asynchronous file transfer and support of FTP, SMB and the Apple® Filing Protocol.
Complete Video Format Flexibility
MediaDeck 7000 provides mounting space and power for up to two independent MediaPort™ 7000 I/O modules, providing ingest and playout of HD and SD video and digital audio. A module can be added to an empty slot at any time, and different MediaPort modules can be mixed in a single MediaDeck.
