Accom Announces New APR/ClipStoreMX Disk RecorderOffers high-performance uncompressed HD/SD (May 18, 2005)
Accom recently announced at the National Association of Broadcasters convention, the launch of APR/ClipStoreMX, part of a range of new high-performance universal-format disk recorders. Combining Accoms new Sequoia video+audio processing hardware, state-of-the-art high-performance disk drive technology and network access via a powerfully-enhanced NetPanel graphical user interface, the APR/ClipStoreMX supports uncompressed 10-bit high-definition video, standard-definition video and 24-bit AES/EBU digital audio.
Targeted for applications requiring uncompressed video+audio at the highest quality, including television production and post-production, telecine, digital cinema, effects animation, and scientific visualization, APR/ClipStoreMX provides versatile and feature-rich HD and SD functionality at a highly competitive price point.
APR/ClipStoreMX offers 2.5 hours of real-time storage for 1920x1080/60i HD video and audio equivalent to over 13 hours of 525 or 625 video and audio. APR/ClipStoreMX supports interlaced and progressive HD video at 1920x1080 and 1280x720 at all popular frame rates, and offers eight tracks of uncompressed AES/EBU 24-bit digital audio, with support for embedded and discrete audio input/output.
To provide powerful and extensible facilities for multi-user collaborative workflows, APR/ClipStoreMX can be operated via the new NetPanel interface from any networked computer running Windows, MacOS, Linux or Irix. NetPanel is a browser-based, platform-independent application compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape and Safari browsers, giving full machine control, built-in clip viewing, media management and system configuration facilities for APR/ClipStoreMX. NetPanel can also be run directly on APR/ClipStoreMX itself with the addition of a VGA monitor, for stand-alone operation.
Offering outstanding operational convenience, APR/ClipStoreMX provides plug-and-play functionality, without the need for complicated setup or drive partitioning, and offers a powerful set of features including: Auto Edit; watched folders with automated file transfer to and from networked external devices; support for all major file formats; and Windows Media 9 encoding for creating digital dailies, DVD content and web streams. APR/ClipStoreMX also features an application programming interface (API) that allows third-party programmers to control all attributes and image transfer operations.
APR/ClipStoreMX can be controlled from almost any external RS422 controller ? including third-party control panels, editors, and automation systems, as well as acting as a master device to control almost any external VTR for fast, frame-accurate media ingest and off-loading; and multiple Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports for convenient and reliable backup of stored media to external Hi-Speed USB disk storage sub-systems.
Also launched at NAB 2005, APR/ClipStoreMXc provides high-quality JPEG 2000 compressed HD video, uncompressed SD video and audio, and removable drives for easy transfer to remote locations. See separate release for details.
