The NEXIO AMP® advanced media platform is much more than a robust HD/SD transmission server — it represents an entirely new approach to managing digital content. From ingest to transmission, NEXIO AMP delivers exceptional reliability, flexible media I/O and complete format transparency.

Standard on all NEXIO AMP mainframes are cutting-edge IT connectivity and direct access to the advanced NEXIO® shared storage. Each NEXIO AMP supports up to six channels of SD or four channels of HD or mixed HD/SD real-time I/O. The system is fully software configurable, using agile software-based codecs to encode and decode HD and SD content.

NEXIO AMP is optimized for use with NEXIO’s true shared storage, a modular and scalable system that makes it easy to add channels and storage as a broadcaster’s requirements change. Multiple NEXIO AMP mainframes can be attached to shared storage, enabling systems with hundreds of channels and integration with other NEXIO components, including editors and gateways. Access to shared storage is via redundant, dual-port 4 Gb/s fibre channel.

As a member of the NEXIO server family, NEXIO AMP runs the Harris patented and Emmy® award-winning RAIDsoft™ software RAID management system, which allows all channels and network ports to simultaneously access content without restriction. RAIDsoft provides three methods for safeguarding stored media in each volume: RAID 3, for protection against single drive failures per volume; Error Correction Code (ECC) Parity, which guards against two simultaneous drive failures per volume; and Intrinsic Mirroring™, which simultaneously writes all data to two shared storage systems to provide complete data protection. The intelligent RAIDsoft system keeps cached copies of the frame allocation table (FAT) in RAM and on disk, adding exceptional system resiliency.

Ethernet and FTP connectivity support network devices such as shared folders and near-line storage systems.

Ethernet and FTP connectivity support network devices such as shared folders and near-line storage systems. Import and export of data to external devices is facilitated through front and rear USB 2.0 and FireWire® ports, and a 5.25 in. drive bay accepts supported third-party devices, such as a Panasonic® P2 deck.

NEXIO AMP performance can be enhanced with a number of software options. These media applications include NEXIO AMP ChannelView™, which integrates multiviewer I/O monitoring directly onto the server, and NEXIO AMP PRX Encoder™, which enables simultaneous proxy-file generation during high-resolution video ingest. Other task-specific applications are also available.

PRODUCT DETAILS

HIGH-PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY Processors

Two 64-bit AMD Opteron™ processors provide real-time, high-bit-rate coding and decoding, and enable the NEXIO AMP server to ingest and play out up to six channels simultaneously.

MediaCore™ Engine

MediaCore™ is a high-performance, 64-bit software engine that controls all low level NEXIO AMP functionality. This multistream module manages real-time transactions and system status updates, as well as RAIDsoft, the NEXIO software RAID and disk storage management system. MediaCore employs

task-specific, multicore CPU/GPU/FPGA processing to effortlessly handle all baseband video and file I/O. The module canw w w . b r o a d c a s t . h a r r i s . c o m " id="pdf-obj-2-3" src="pdf-obj-2-3.jpg">

task-specific, multicore CPU/GPU/FPGA processing to effortlessly handle all baseband video and file I/O. The module can be controlled via external or internal interfaces.

Shared Storage Connectivity

All NEXIO AMP mainframes connect to the NEXIO shared storage and enjoy the same level of content sharing as all other servers in the NEXIO product line — instant access to all content, all the time, by all users, without restrictions.

STANDARD APPLICATIONS NXOS

The standard user interface for the NEXIO AMP mainframe is NXOS. This intuitive operating system allows users to control ingest and playout on all channels — including off-speed play, trimming and sub-clip creation. NXOS includes the versatile NEXIO MediaBase™ feature. As the NEXIO content management system, MediaBase updates the NEXIO AMP clip list in real time whenever changes are made to the content residing in storage.

NEXIO FTP Server™ and FTP Client™

The NEXIO FTP Server™ application enables the movement of material from server domain to server domain, and import and export of material outside of the NEXIO server environment via Ethernet. NEXIO FTP Client™ facilitates MXF file exchange and simplified transfer of Panasonic P2 (including AVC-Intra import) and Sony® XDCAM/XDCAM HD files (including access to multiple XDCAM decks via Ethernet).

PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT

Add any of the following optional applications to boost the performance of your NEXIO AMP advanced media platform:

NEXIO AMP ChannelView

NEXIO AMP ChannelView integrates software-based multiviewer I/O monitoring directly into the NEXIO AMP server, allowing users to easily and cost effectively monitor the server’s input and output ports on an attached VGA monitor. Choose from preconfigured layouts that correspond to the different channel configurations available with NEXIO AMP, or customize layouts using the included Layout Designer software to match your specific I/O configuration.

NEXIO AMP PRX Encoder

NEXIO AMP PRX Encoder enables the NEXIO AMP server to automatically generate low-resolution H.264 proxy files simultaneously with the baseband ingest of up to two channels of high-resolution video. These proxy files are saved to the NEXIO Browse Server™ storage array, where they are available for viewing and editing on a low-resolution NEXIO Browse network.

NEXIO ClipSync™

Use NEXIO ClipSync™ to play two clips in sync for key-plus-fill and similar applications when the two

elements exist as separate clips.

NEXIO Delay™

Use NEXIO Delay™ to apply a delay to your air channel for safety in live-to-air transmissions, or for time

zone-specific playback delay.

NEXIO Navigator™

Identify potential problems before they impact your on-air product with NEXIO Navigator™, an

SNMP-based application that supports remote monitoring and diagnostics of NEXIO servers and

network-attached devices. NEXIO PlayList™ NEXIO PlayList™ is an event-sequencing application that can be used for play-toairw w w . b r o a d c a s t . h a r r i s . c o m " id="pdf-obj-3-3" src="pdf-obj-3-3.jpg">

network-attached devices.

NEXIO PlayList™

NEXIO PlayList™ is an event-sequencing application that can be used for play-toair operations such as commercial insertion, time-of-day events, moving backgrounds and more.

NEXIO Remote™

Extend control of server channels using NEXIO Remote™, an application that provides control of up to

six NEXIO AMP channels over a standard LAN connection.
