The SCORPION-6 Media Processing Platform is a silent standalone form factor enabling the aggregation, transport and processing of video, audio and data signals. Using SCORPION MIO modules, the SCORPION-6 is highly flexible and can be connected into fiber, baseband or IP networks ranging from 1-25GbE.

When deployed as a flexible IP edge device, the SCORPION-6 becomes part of an integrated, scalable transport network, enabling the sharing of content from different sites using different transport media.

The SCORPION-6 is a small fanless form factor, and is designed to be operated in portable and/or low noise environments.
