The DreamCatcher™ 400E Series is the most advanced replay system and production suite available today. Leveraging Evertz' IP SDVN technology, the DreamCatcher™ network allows for a distributed system design that is scalable and flexible.

The rugged 3RU chassis supports up to 16x channels in HD, 12x channels in 3G and 3x channels in 4K/UHD, while the license-free design makes all features and configurations available to users through a simple web-based configuration tool. The DreamCatcher™ replay system is truly a storytelling tool that can adapt to the needs of every production.

The DC-400E Series is available in storage options from 1TB to 12TB supporting up to 240 hours of live content storage with an additional 1TB of redundant archive storage. In addition, each system includes an integrated transcoding engine to allow for import and export of all live production codecs.

The DC-400E Series also includes advanced production tools like 4K/UHD pan and scan zooming, frame accurate split screen views, graphics overlays, statistics integration as well as support for 2x 4K-UHD slow motion cameras and 10x HD super slow motion cameras.
