​Slomo.tv To Launch Dominator AT/12G 4K Replay Server

Costing from €80,000, the instant replay machine is claimed to be the world’s most affordable and powerful multi-functional 4K server.

Slomo.tv says it will launch “a new aggressively priced server” designed for the fast growing 4K market at IBC2018.

CEO Michael Gilman, says that this latest addition to the company’s Dominator range represents the world’s most cost-effective and powerful multi-functional 4K server.

Designated Dominator AT/12G, the unit provides slow motion and instant replay capabilities as well as direct recording for editing ‘on site’. In the 4K mode it supports the 662 configuration (6REC+6SEARCH+2PLAY), however in 3G/HD replay mode it supports 10-channels recording, search on all channels and four channels replay (10REC+10SEARCH+4PLAY). Mode switching is achieved with one button push and does not require any re-configuration of the system.

“Since many manufacturers use 12G SDI interfaces for 4K operation, the new server is equipped with 12 universal 12G / 3G / HD / SD video interfaces,” explains Gilman. “This allocates one (BNC) connector for all standards, which perfectly fits modern cameras and mixers and significantly reduces the number of connecting cables.”

Two operators can work simultaneously on the same unit. With four independent graphics outputs each operator can work with separate monitors using the main GUI and Multiviewer. The GUI built-in Multiviewer has five basic configurations, displaying video windows of different or equal size, for input video, search channels, and video outputs.

Of value in compact OB environments, an optional MultiSkin function allows the user to display several different interfaces on one monitor: these include the main GUI interface, Multiviewer and Game Analyzer (telestrator).

The €80,000 base configuration includes the 4U server unit, 266 hours capacity of SSD storage (100mbit HD video), 10GbE and 12G SAS connectivity, redundant power supply, remote controller and DMR ProRes 422 support for 4K mode, Telestrator and transfer options.
