See how this modular product fits in a frame:

Media processing in a compact modular chassis has never been more flexible. The MIO-BLADE-Z21 is a generic FPGA based compute module capable of running a catalogue of software services as defined by the user. This adds a layer of agility and flexibility with the SCORPION solution, allowing any deployed functionality to dynamically change or be updated with changing infrastructure and workflow requirements.

The MIO-BLADE-Z21 has the capability to run unique software functions (APPs) and have each been scaled to process a specific family of functions enabled by the Evertz Virtualized Compression Stack, APPs that can be delivered to the modules and run through the application of a valid license or channel key. The ability to stop, deploy and run functionality in this manner provides the capability to enable the most agile network edge and also produces an opportunity for network costs to be moved more to an opex model if desired. Licenses can be temporal or perpetual depending on customer requirements.
