The Viz Video Engine is a cost-effective broadcast live video recorder for SDI acquisition. The recorder is controlled and managed by our Media Asset Management system, Viz Media Engine. A single engine handles four channels, each capable of recording files from an extensive selection of HD and SD broadcast video formats. All video is wrapped in the MXF format, stored locally and made accessible through an FTP interface. Files are automatically moved and transcoded to centrally managed storage by Viz Media Engine. This means assets can be searched, previewed and edited from Viz Media Engine – even while recording is still ongoing. Once recording completes Viz Media Engine automatically deletes unwanted media.
- Four channels of selectable HD or SD recording per 1U chassis
- Enables SDI acquisition in Viz Media Engine
- Fail-safe reliability provided by redundant RAID storage, power supplies, and network ports
- Cost-effective and easy to implement
