intoPIX and AXON build on successful collaboration
Amsterdam, RAI, 07 September 2012 – On its stand at IBC, AXON Digital Design (10.A21), a leading provider of modular broadcast systems will introduce its first product in the range of JPEG2000 enabled broadcast products. This product, the HLD100, a High Definition version of the previously presented SLD100, is the direct result of the partnership with intoPIX (10.D31), a market-leading provider of JPEG 2000 compression solutions. Furthermore, new at IBC is the SLD 200 long time SD-SDI uncompressed baseband video delay with two discrete output delays.
The SLD 200 has been developed with +1 and +2 hour film channel, time zone compensation and Clip Server applications. The two individual output format engines of the SLD200 enable seperate outputs with different delays (such as +1 Hour and 2 Hour). The JPEG 2000 enabled HLD100 module can store and delay up to two hours of HD material including all blanking as RAW data.
The SLD100, SLD200 and HLD100 employ SSD disk technology making the modules extremely robust and reliable with very low maintenance requirements. Furthermore, when compared to rival server-based solutions, they have a relatively low environmental impact. The power consumption of this dual slot device is approximately 35W - a ten-fold energy saving over comparable server based unit, which generates significant cost savings through decreased energy consumption and air conditioning requirements.
The hardware employed within the units is fully 3Gb/s SDI capable, ensuring future proof investment for later planned migration to HD and 3Gb/s workflows.
AXON is positioned at the leading edge of technical development within the markets it serves. The majority of AXON’s product portfolio has been developed with a significant customer input, helping
