DVS Showcases VENICE Video Server with New Transcoding Mode (27/4/2010)

At NAB 2010, DVS showcased VENICE, a server for video content typically used in broadcast environments. In addition to supporting various uncompressed formats, VENICE now features extended support of compressed formats such as AVC-Intra, DVCPRO(r), DNxHD(r), or XDCAM(r).

DVS will presented the latest addition to its family of video systems: The broadcast video server VENICE captures data directly from cameras, tape recorders, P2 cards, the Professional Disc Reader(tm) or hard drives. Material can be accessed and processed directly with multiple editing systems.

Just one year after its launch, DVS's multi-channel video server is enhanced with new features: VENICE enables real-time capture and play-out of compressed formats, and is equipped with a vast feature set, that includes four independent video channels, playlists and intelligent global presets. With its extensive playlist support, VENICE even handles VDCP.

One of the main highlights is VENICE's native support of AVC-Intra. The Panasonic codec is rapidly becoming the acquisition format for many broadcasters and productions worldwide. The DVS video server handles three streams in parallel and allows capture and play-out of AVC-Intra material in real-time.

At NAB 2010, DVS presents VENICE's new transcoding mode, its extended support of compressed formats, and numerous workflow improvements. The video server enables users to achieve fast, consistent workflows by converting different data formats on-the-fly. VENICE supports both uncompressed and compressed formats including AVC-Intra, DVCPRO(r), DNxHD(r) and XDCAM(r). Essential MXF variants can be easily and securely used in file-based workflows. Moreover, VENICE also enables parallel processing of SD and HD projects.

With VENICE, DVS combines the reliability and performance of its established processing systems with the demands of future-proof tapeless workflows in broadcasting. In addition to functioning as a solid server for content ingest and play-out, VENICE also includes secure and quickly accessible RAID storage.

VENICE is also available as a separate module which can be connected directly to SpycerBox, DVS's storage solution. This combination provides 48 TB SATA storage with four channels I/O using only 7U rackspace.

Norbert Paefgen, Sales Director - Key Accounts at DVS: "VENICE constitutes the ideal solution for broadcasters who are faced with unique demands for time-sensitive content delivery while maintaining high quality. At NAB 2010, DVS will show how VENICE meets the market's requirements and enables broadcasters to react flexibly in any situation."
