European Debut For Slomo.tv’s Arrow II Server
Arrow II Server costs from Euro 20,000.
Direct recording in NLE file formats, videoReferee and Game Analyzer (telestrator) options now available.
First introduced at NAB 2018, Slomo.tv is offering a special price for the basic 442 model of its Arrow II Server, providing four record, four search and two playback with transition channels of Euro 20,000.
“The Arrow line is our entry-level solution, setting a new standard in cost-effective production and replay servers,” commented Michael Gilman, CEO of Slomo.tv. “The servers are based on our successful server platform, with eight bi-directional 3G/HD/SD SDI video ports, which makes it possible to remotely upgrade the basic 442 model to a 662 configuration. With built-in storage of up to 533 hours of HD video as a standard feature Arrow II offers a uniquely cost-effective option in the professional broadcast market.”
For more demanding applications, the Arrow II 662 model provides six recording channels with simultaneous search on all channels and two playback channels with transition effects. If necessary, the 662 server can be used as a seven recording channel replay system.
Arrow II is claimed as the first budget server to provide a DMR option for direct recording in NLE file formats. This option includes an external 1U device that records video on standard 3.5” SATA hard drives installed in four racks, enabling the recorded video to be used immediately for NLE. The server also has 10 GbE interface, which allows recording of NLE files on any Network Attached Storage system.
The DMR option supports ProRes 422, DNxHD, DVCProHD, XDCAM 422 codecs. Also, the new server includes a free of charge Transfer (networking) option for exchanging clips and playlists, as well as telestrator (Game Analyzer), which allows operators to draw on the video being played.
Arrow II has a 2U, 9 kg size for small OB vehicles and fly-away installations and has a redundant power supply option. Also, the videoReferee option of Arrow II can be used as an eight-channel video judging system in different sport leagues, including, soccer, ice hockey, basketball and handball.
