NAB marks the official U.S. launch of Autocue’s first four standalone, Linux-based video servers. These versatile servers feature up to four bi-directional HD/ SD channels for simultaneous record and playout, and a range of storage capabilities.
They are an ideal replacement for tape machines, as well as an affordable solution for secondary applications within top-end broadcasters. A beta version of the next generation server will also be on show, which incorporates vision and audio mixer handling, virtual playback channels, internal character generation, channel branding and virtual record channels. This new system would allow customers to use a single system to produce live programmes without the need for additional hardware.
Also being launched at the show is the new Master Series 12” teleprompter, to complement the recently designed 17” and 20” models. The new range represents the latest and greatest in teleprompter hardware. Using LED backlit technology, Autocue’s design team has created the first ever slimline, high-bright teleprompter monitors.
