Multi Channel Media Server

Insight [ODYSSEY]

Revolutionary Ease of Use Multi Channel Media Server

ODYSSEY’s Insight Production Server is a versatile system with many features designed to provide easy media management and integration with studio workflows. The channel density can grow from two up to four or eight channels, depending on the system requirements. A wide range of codecs and wrappers provide easy media exchange, playback and recording without conversion. SDI, 12G-SDI and NDI® interfaces are supported across the range of models.

Insight’s user interface is designed for concurrent operation, allowing multiple users to operate cooperatively on the server, providing integrated operation across the network. Different roles can also shape the access level of each user, limiting function and channel rights to keep operation safe for all users.

A tight integration with the Hanabi family switchers enables seamless operation and interaction for unified control. Other protocols like VDCP and AMP are supported for further integration with other devices.

Additional system modules may be added to customize the system to better fit the production requirements for enhanced productivity.Network workflows can be improved by means of automatic media transfer, shared network storage and server synchronization. In addition to the standard IO channels, more EditChannels can be added to existing systems for reviewing, trimming, cutting and exporting media directly through the system interface.
