The Evertz Media Clients are highly optimized digital Audio/Video I/O platforms that perform real-time, multi-channel HD or SD ingest and playout for broadcast and post-production facilities. Individual Media Clients can be provided with optional local RAID6 storage to allow a simple, standalone HD/SD ingest/playout platform as an inexpensive broadcast or post-production solution. The ability to exploit either networked or local storage allows the Evertz Media Client to be used in multiple operational models that feature real-time ingest and playback from central storage, local storage or both.
Broadcast and post-production workflows are no longer operationally constrained by the architecture of the server system or an individual box.
The Evertz Playout Client is a broadcast-quality, frame-accurate, digital baseband linear playout station that performs real-time SW-based decoding, and de-multiplexing of HD/SD-SDI content in either MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 formats. Currently supported HD codecs include XDCAM HD 4:2:2 and AVC-Intra HD 4:2:2.
A real-time, frame-accurate, linear playout channel is controlled via popular protocols over an IP network or individual RS-422 ports. For Playout Clients provided with local RAID6 storage, file transfers are accomplished using FTP or NFS.
