Zeplay Unveils Redesigned Replay Server

At the 2019 NAB Show Zeplay will show a new instant replay server called Zeplay R7. It is more compact that its predecessor, reducing weight and energy consumption.

The company said the newly redesigned Zeplay R7 server adds solid-state drives that accelerate processing and enhance reliability. The change does not affect Zeplay’s existing control system and ability to manage and deliver instant replays.

Brandon McKenzie, Co-Founder and Principal Engineer at Zeplay, said that the new R7 server operates on less than 350 watts of power. While TV stations, arenas and stadiums will also benefit, McKenzie sees the redesign as a major advantage for mobile production trucks.

“Power is always a concern in mobile production, not to mention keeping weight in control on a moving vehicle,” said McKenzie. “Our new server amplifies both of these benefits in the core, while also lowering the upfront cost.”

The system now starts at $27,500. A new RAID option will be made available at an additional cost for customers desiring additional storage redundancy and content protection, along with an option for 1080p video support.
