Autocue introduces standalone, Linux-based video servers (8/10/2010)
Autocue will show its first four standalone, Linux-based video servers. The servers feature up to four bi-directional HD/ SD channels for simultaneous record and playout, and up to 12TB of storage. These products are an ideal replacement for tape machines, as well as an affordable solution for secondary applications within top-end broadcasters. The servers will start shipping to customers in October 2010.
The introduction of these new products forms part of a new strategy by Autocue to extend its reach within the broadcast sector. The products themselves build on Autocue’s extensive broadcast experience, for the first time providing broadcasters with servers of the high quality and affordability that they have come to expect from Autocue’s existing range of teleprompter and newsroom solutions.
As CEO, Frank Hyman explains, “Video servers are a natural evolution for the company and demonstrate the true breadth of our broadcast knowledge, design and development capability.” Hyman continues, “Autocue has been selling newsroom, automation and media management products to top-end broadcasters for more than two decades. In response to demand for a more affordable solution, we developed an end-to-end production system including an own brand video server. This was received so well that we decided to develop a video server that could be used standalone, as part of any production system.”
