Dayang announces that its VIPS 3000 range of multi-definition servers is now in production. Introduced in prototype at NAB2006 in April, the 3000 series provides simultaneous output of HD and SD signals. HD ingest and playout can be performed in MPEG-I, MPEG-IBP and DVCPRO HD formats. SD ingest and broadcasting of files in DV25, DV50, MPEG-I and MPEG-IBP formats are also supported.
VIPS 3000 multidefinition servers are capable of handling HD or SD signals. VIPS 3000 HD servers incorporate a dual-core CPU and broadcast-quality I/O board accepting analog or digital HD or SD inputs plus external sync. IP-SAN networking is fully supported. Two 1Gb Ethernet ports are incorporated. Controllable via VDCP, the servers can be used to capture and play HD/SD signals, as well as for upconversion/downconversion playout. Component signals (4:2:2 and 4:2:0) can be handled as well as composite, Y/C, SMPTE-259M SDI and ASI. Two stereo digital/analog audio inputs are provided plus four digital/analogue stereo outputs. Audio processing is transparent for Dolby-E and Dolby AC-3 signals.
