The Perfect Unit for File-Based Production

These three models (MBP-100SX/110SXA/100PD) are compact (1 RU) video clip servers equipped with HD/SD-SDI inputs and outputs and a solid-state drive (SSD) for recording. Record and play MXF files compatible with Sony XDCAM/XDCAM HD/XDCAM HD422 or Panasonic P2/P2 HD equipment. Clips can be transferred or saved over Gigabit Ethernet. Highly versatile and reliable, the servers can be used in a variety of applications including ingest, playback, and even program playout using a playout system.

Sample Applications

Features

Conversion of Video Signals and MXF Files

  • Equipped with HD/SD-SDI input and output, and supports conversion between baseband signals and MXF files (ingest applications)
  • Even during video recording or playback, clips can be added over the network; no time lost for switching disks or media (seamless operation)
  • Supports up to 8 channels of audio in embedded format

Convenient Control Software

  • Can be used as a clip server providing database-driven management of video clips and playout programs, in conjunction with the MediaConcierge™ media management system
  • Comes equipped with control software, for standalone operation when the unit is connected to a mouse and PC monitor or touch-panel interface
  • Registered clips are instantly recognizable by thumbnail display in the control software
  • Can be controlled remotely over a network by installing the software for remote operation on a PC, in addition to standalone operation (optional)
  • Add-on software available; manage lists indicating the playout order, or manage playout involving multiple lists (optional)

Hardware Engineered to Leverage Advanced Technologies

  • Compact 1RU vibration-resistant case, ideal for off-site and in-vehicle applications
  • Dedicated hardware; unlike products based on computer platforms, the converter can be easily turned on and off with a single switch
  • Real-time recording and stable playback of video on hardware developed by FOR-A
  • Recording to SSD enables solid, vibration-resistant video performance

Full Range of Interfaces

  • Ethernet: 100Base-TX/1000Base-T Ethernet port for high-speed file transfer
  • USB: 4 USB 2.0-compatible ports (2 each in front and back), enabling connection of external XDCAM or P2 drives or a keyboard and mouse
  • RS-422: Serial port enabling control from an external controller using VTR emulation commands
  • GPI: GPI port enabling remote control of playback (3 inputs, 3 outputs)
  • VGA: Computer display port enables access to settings and use of control software

Playback Application - MBP Standalone

  • Transfer MXF files (produced or edited in nonlinear systems) over the network to the MBP for conversion and output as HD/SD-SDI baseband signals
  • Control the MBP using a touch-panel interface, mouse or keyboard
  • GPI external triggers also supported
  • *Encoding and decoding cannot be performed at the same time.

Playback Application - Playout of Shared Material on Multiple MBP Units

  • Store material produced or edited in nonlinear systems on a shared NAS unit
  • Transfer MXF files on the NAS over the network to multiple MBPs
  • Coordinated control of multiple MBPs using a touch-panel interface, mouse or keyboard from the computer where the remote control software is installed
  • GPI external triggers also supported
  • *Encoding and decoding cannot be performed at the same time.

Playout Application - Using MBP as a Video Server

  • Store material produced or edited in nonlinear systems on a shared NAS unit
  • Transfer specified MXF files on the NAS over the network to multiple MBPs using the automatic program playout system
  • Output from MBPs follows the automatic program playout system
  • Enables a basic playout system to be built without installing a dedicated playout server by combining multiple MBPs
  • A configuration of three MBP-110SXA units (128GB models) enables a midsize playout system (128GB MBP-110SXA units offer 8 hours of recording at 25Mbps)
  • *Encoding and decoding cannot be performed at the same time.
