Media Processing Platform - Miniature Frame

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:

The SCORPION-2 Media Processing Platform is a miniature form factor, multi-service signal conversion, aggregation enclosure capable of simultaneously transporting video, audio and data services over Ethernet or fiber networks. Using SCORPION MIO modules, the SCORPION-2 is highly flexible and can accommodate a multitude of video, audio, and data signals. The SCORPION-2 will take on the function of the mini I/O module installed and can become a standalone IP gateway, miniature throwdown encoder, or dark fiber media converter to highlight a few use cases.

When combined with other SCORPION form factors, the SCORPION-2 becomes part of an integrated, scalable transport network, enabling the sharing of content from different sites using different transport media.

The SCORPION-2 possesses a compact fanless form factor, and is designed to be operated in portable and/or low noise environments. SCORPION-2 is ideal for mobile and live sports production applications.
