NAB 2012: Abekas Offerings Target Sports Broadcast Industry
Abekas will offer a rich product line aimed at the sports broadcast industry, including instant replay and production servers, digital video disk recorders, profanity elimination delay systems, and digital special effects machines, at Booth SL1515.
The Mira production server is being used around the world for live instant replay, regular and super slow motion, and highlights editing. Event highlights can be “melted” to an external USB/eSATA drive or networked edit station in two popular media file formats: Sony XDCAM-50 and DVCPro-100. Mira is available in configurations ranging from a 4-channel system with 25 hours of storage to an 8-channel system with 350 hours of storage. By pairing channels, any Mira server can be instantly changed into stereoscopic 3D operation with 3G level-B interconnect.
Mira 8-channel servers can be configured as 6-IN/2-OUT; allowing six cameras to be simultaneously and continuously recorded while two output channels are used as PGM/PGM or PVW/PGM with dissolves.
Every Mira server operates in SD and HD, provides eight tracks of embedded audio per video channel and has integrated quad- and multi-viewers.
Other Abekas products on exhibit at NAB-2012 are the AirCleaner Profanity Elimination Delay and the ClipStoreMXc Digital Disk Recorder with Video+Key+Audio recording and playback.
