Broadcaster announces two new HD Geevs Servers

Gee Broadcast have announced two new low cost Geevs Servers for HD and SD applications. The Geevs Slim HD and Geevs HDE provide flexible SD/HD servers with Digital and Analogue i/o.
Geevs Slim HD is a compact 1RU Server with one input channel and one output channel which can operate as independent channels. Included is one Tbyte of storage for up to 18 hours at 100Mbits/sec. Additional external storage can also be used. Multiple Geevs Slim HD units can be combined to make a larger multichannel array under a common control interface. The need for HD servers is increasing as more users prepare for or make the transition to HD and Geevs Slim HD offers an affordable and compact entry to this HD Server market.
Geevs HDE is a 4RU Server with two inputs and two independent outputs. Up to six Tbytes of storage can be fitted internally or more added as an external chassis.
All the standard Geevs control Software is available for Geevs Slim HD and Geevs HDE allowing both of them to be used in a wide range of applications for Ingest, Management and Playout.
Both models feature SDI or component HD input and output, with Composite also available when running in SD.
Audio can be embedded, AES/EBU or analogue. Clips can be encoded with MPEG2 or DVCPro100 codecs in AVI or Quicktime wrappers allowing easy file interchange with NLEs or other applications.
Geevs has always offered good value, but these new models provide a lower entry point for HD Servers. The recent fall in value of the UK£ has also helped highlight Geevs outstanding value.
