Product ManualManual

The DreamCatcher™ 200NZ Series is a scalable IP-based low bit rate content recorder that enhances any DreamCatcher™ cluster by adding ingest, storage and compute capabilities. The rugged 3RU chassis supports native capture of up to 12x low bit rate IP inputs.

The DC-200NZ Series is available in three storage options with the ability to easily double each storage selection. 1, 3 and 5TB of storage are available supporting 60, 120 and 180 hours of 50MB/s content respectively. Each system has an additional 1TB of near line secondary storage for archiving content.

The DC-200NZ Series is designed to seamlessly integrate into an IP facility built around Evertz' revolutionary 10GbE SDVN technology. The DC-200NZ Series allows you to utilize the revolutionary DreamCatcher™ feature set in a native IP-based production environment.

The DC-200NZ Series allows for native low bit rate long GOP recording while utilizing Evertz' IP SDVN technology to provide unprecedented access from any client connected on the network. The IP-based design allows for hundreds of nodes to be connected on a DreamCatcher™ cluster for an unprecedented level of scalability.
