Sweden - Dataton unveiled the WATCHPAX 60 series of media servers at ISE. With the latest processor technology under the hood, robust exterior and redundant power supply as standard, the new rack-friendly series is suitable for demanding applications such as live events, attractions and broadcast installations.
“We gathered feedback from key users during the design process to produce a plug-and-play media server series that would not only meet, but exceed, requirements for the toughest show environment,” says Lars Sandlund, Dataton CEO. “The dual power supply, range of models, SDI bi-directional connector options and fastest discs in the market all ensure that even the most complex shows are delivered flawlessly.”
The new 2U media server will be available in three models offering from four up to 12 outputs and support for uncompressed video playback. Each model features HDMI and SDI input, balanced audio, dual 10Gbit/s network for high-speed content transfer, high performance ultra-durable NVMe media storage, as well as a WATCHOUT license.
The intermediate and top-end models include hardware synchronisation, with the top-end model also featuring an eight-channel bi-directional SDI card for live video capture and playout. Weighing in at a handy 10 kg, WATCHPAX 60 sports a rugged aluminium chassis, and a smart approach when it comes to installation - tabletop, rack-mounted or stacked.
“Our WATCHOUT system offers enormous possibilities for show producers,” says Lars Sandlund. “With performance-optimised servers, users can tap into all that creative potential and playback even more fabulous shows.”
