Slomo.tv, which provides SSD-based video record and replay systems, will launch its Fulcrum AT/12G 4K instant replay server at NAB 2018.
The 4K server system enables advanced slow motion and instant replay capabilities, as well as direct recording for editing on site. The platform offers operators a total of ten replay channels (four record + four search + two play). Search is available on all recorded channels simultaneously, with recording and playing back of two channels with transition effects. The automatic creation of clips during instant replays is a Slomo.tv proprietary feature, which allows the operator to create highlights/summary packages while working in instant replay mode.
“While 4K cameras are becoming more affordable, the cost of a 4K replay channel is still expensive,” said Igor Vitiorets, CTO at Slomo.tv. “Addressing this issue, we have developed our most affordable, but still powerful, broadcast-grade 4K Slomo server in the Fulcrum AT/12G. Since many manufacturers use 12G SDI interfaces for 4K (UHD) production workflows this server is equipped with universal 12G/3G/HD/SD video interfaces, enabling just one (BNC) connector for all standards. This perfectly fits modern cameras and switchers and significantly reduces the number of connecting cables.”
The built-in Multiviewer features five basic configurations of different numbers of video feeds, displaying video inputs, search channels and system video outputs. Developed specifically for production environments where space-saving is at a premium, a MultiSkin function allows the operator to use one monitor to display different interfaces: the main GUI interface, Multiviewer or Game Analyzer (telestrator).
Together with several SSD technology developers, Slomo.tv has developed the capability of recording and storing high-quality video with SSD technology. The use of SSD storage empowers Slomo.tv servers with a number of advantages – search on all channels, recording uncompressed full-resolution video signals, large built-in storage capacity, lightweight servers and the ability to operate in harsh conditions including high vibration levels.
