DreamCatcher™ 200NZ Series

IP-Based Low Bit Rate Content Recorder

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. Storage options from 800GB to 12TB available supporting 30 hours to 480 hours of storage @50MB/s. 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.
