EVS GX Server Opens to Wider Range of Vision Mixers
Different media formats can be imported from the built-in DVD drive, from an external USB or eSATA hard drive or from the network through GigE ports of the GX Server. The EVS GX server is also capable of handling audio files which can either be embedded into the media file or associated with files manually. Once associated, files can play once as a loop or in a nested loop. To sustain the bandwidth required for uncompressed HD graphics, the GX Server uses a high performance internal RAID storage based on solid state technology offering instant recall and large storage space for multiple clips.
It also offers unmatched performance and reliability in a very compact chassis. EVS has also paid special attention to the GX Server's sturdiness making it suitable for use in OB trucks, fly packs or during frequent shipments. Media import and system setup can be controlled easily from the user interface built into the server. It is also accessible from any computer connected to the same network.
