IBC 2022 - New multi-channel Recording and Replay server Arrow-V with 16 recording channels
The Arrow servers are compact and lightweight (2U, 88 x 482 x 512 mm, 15 kg) systems. They are ideal for mobile solutions and integration into the existing infrastructure of studios and OB Vans.
Compared to the previous model - Arrow-III, the new Arrow-V doubles the number of recording channels. The server is equipped with 16 bi-directional SDI I/Os and provides 14 3G/HD-SDI recording channels in replay mode.
In recording for NLE mode, the server supports up to 16 channels.
The SSD-based disk subsystem provides high performance and resistance to mechanical impact (shock and heavy vibration). The Arrow-V is available with different disk subsystem capacity - 66 / 133 / 266 / 530 hours of 100 Mbps HD video.
Despite its compact size, the Arrow-V server supports up to two independent full-featured workplaces.
For replay configurations with 1 workplace, the server provides 14 recording channels + 14 search сhannels + 2 playback channels with transition effects (FX). In a 2-workplaces replay configuration, each operator works with up to 7 recording channels + 7 search channels + 2 playback channels + FX with SDI output for PGM and PVW output on the Multiviewer screen.
A large number of 3G-SDI recording channels in replay mode and a simple quick interface make Arrow-V a perfect solution for slow motion replays at eSports events.
Using slomo.tv's unique DMR™ technology, the server can record up to 16 video channels with ProRes 442 codec into NLE native files on alienable disks. For recording of 5 to 6 channels with Avid DNxHD/ProRes 422 codecs slomo.tv recommends using SSD disks, which can be installed in 3 built-in trayless/toolless Racks located on the front panel (2.5 to 3.5 inch Hard Drive caddies/adaptors are required). Available codecs: DCT-based I-Frame, ProRes 422, DNxHD, DVCPro HD, XDCAM422 50Mbit, XDCAM 35, AVC-Intra 100/50, XAVC.
The system comes with a specialized replay remote panel - Control-ZR, equipped with 51 illuminated RGB buttons, Jog/Shuttle and T-Bar for playback speed control. The controller is connected via Ethernet, USB, RS-232 or RS-422.
