Integrated playout company BroadStream Solutions will launch its new Armada
Time Delay Server at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) 2015 at stand
B29 in Hall 8. The Armada Time Delay Server provides customers with fully
automated time delay and replay from zero to 72 hours.
“Armada is unique in that it can provide a time delay of up to three full days
without any intervention,’ said Ben Wolk, president of Sales and Marketing at
BroadStream Solutions. “It’s perfect for recording the live feeds that you need to
capture and delay on a consistent basis. For broadcasters, telecom companies,
service providers and television networks who work on time zone delays, regional
delays, quality assurance or disaster recovery; the Armada provides cost-effective,
yet sophisticated and safe time delay options that you simply set and forget’.
The Armada Time Delay Server takes live inputs from SD-SDI, HD-SDI or IP and,
provides SD-SDI, HD-SDI or IP outputs. With the option “Delay-Out’ the system can
play multiple time delay outputs from the same input and each output can have the
same or different delay periods. Additional outputs can be added to the Time Delay
Server with the same or different delay and/or graphic overlay. This means the
Time Delay Server can be used as a virtual distribution amplifier with optional
delays and overlays.
Multiple delays are also possible on the same server with an optional single fixed
graphic overlaid on each delayed output. This feature provides improved flexibility
depending on the number of inputs and outputs in a given system.
Intended for fully automated operation with no user intervention, the Armada Time
Delay Server saves on man hours and eliminates human error. Furthermore, the
Armada Server and the associated Time Delay application are contained on one
device so there is no need to use a separate control PC for the Time Delay Server.
With various configuration options on inputs, outputs and storage, Armada is
available in 3RU as standard or 1RU where space is at a premium.
