Intelfax choose Edifis Sting disk recorder

London-based Intelfax, one of the UK's leading independent media services companies, has purchased an Edifis Sting dual-channel disk recording system with 60 minutes of uncompressed digital video and audio storage capacity.
The Sting will be used for recording lines-in feeds, inserting Line 335 subtitling data, and outputting the combined signal as part of a main programme feed for DVD or off-air broadcast.
Intelfax managing director Bill Skirrow comments: "We cannot afford to compromise on the quality of digitised video and audio material recorded and stored at our production centre which must replicate the standard of the original content. Edifis meets this requirement."
Edifis sales director Richard Lilley adds: "This is one in a series of new Edifis contracts after what has been a quiet summer for the entire broadcast industry. Broadcasters and production companies are keener than ever to find the most cost-effective tools with which to maintain and upgrade their facilities. Growing interest in high definition is also making signal quality a major consideration even in standard definition applications, reflected in an increasing demand for uncompressed signal storage."
Sting can be controlled via standard PC Web browsers on any connected network. A selection of pages allows for clip selection, playlist generation and EDL upload/ download. The system can be controlled remotely without the need for a local panel. Custom pages can easily be created using standard HTML commands. The browser interface offers the user the most flexible expansion of the system.
Support of standard IP protocols, over Gigabit Ethernet, allows rapid transfer of data files between the Sting and host computers.
Sting is part of an expanding family of Edifis systems, which includes Scratchbox HD and SD, Graduate, Telecine Brick and Gearbox, all of which are already working very profitably with major broadcasters and post houses.
