Autocue Launches Highly Versatile Two-Port Video Server

Autocue has introduced a new two-port server with SDI inputs to complement the existing analogue and four-port products. The highly adaptable server is touted as the ideal choice for a wide range of applications including education, corporate and faith productions, live events, cinema, theatre, small TV stations as well as support functions for large broadcast operations.
The servers can be used standalone as an e-VTR or VTR replacement; as part of an Autocue automation system; or as part of other third party transmission or automation systems. The versatility of the product means that it can fulfil specific roles as part of a larger system or act as
the central component in any production workflow.
With over two terabytes of useable storage, the 3U, rack-mountable Linux-based server includes a custom, easy-to-use GUI that incorporates video and audio monitoring and supports a wide range of formats for record and playback. The new system also utilises the latest custom firmware, which is already available across all of Autocue's existing SD and HD servers.
Additional software modules for tasks such as creating playlists, linking ports for simultaneous playback or record operations, marking in and out points, and third party control via VDCP or P9 protocols are also available for all models in the range.
According to Autocue Chief Technical Officer Neil Hutchins: "We relish the challenge of delivering video server systems for a range of non-traditional environments. We have always been willing to adapt our software to accommodate particular workflows, which in recent months has included the addition of features like sub-directory support for media, and delayed playback control directly from the server. We can do this because we have a highly experienced development team, allowing us to react quickly to the amazing variety of applications that our customers request. We derive a great deal of satisfaction from consistently deploying elegant solutions to previously complex workflow challenges, whilst retaining a highly competitive price point."
Autocue are located at stand 11.E51 at IBC 2011, 9-13 September.
