Product Highlights

  • Play to air flexibility
  • Automated capture
  • Automated playback
  • Fits your budget
  • The AirSpeed 5000 server was designed with workflow speed and playback flexibility in mind. Clips that don’t match the preferred playback format are automatically up, down, or cross converted, and channel output switching between HD and SD eliminates the need to dedicate channels to one format. Included high quality slow motion playback is the perfect solution for key sports highlights under the most demanding broadcast conditions.

  • Full integration with the Interplay | Capture ingest control system delivers reliable feed scheduling and recording, and the included IsoSync application which allows one-button, frame-synchronized multi camera capture into Avid ISIS shared storage for fast editing and turnaround. For events spanning days or weeks, AirSpeed 5000 seamlessly handles recording, eliminating the need to manage ingest scheduling.

  • When it’s time to go to air, multi-channel playlists can be built in the AirSpeed 5000 Remote Console for automated playback, and the iNEWS | Command playback control application provides cost effective play to air under automated, assisted, or manual control. AirSpeed servers also interface easily with automation systems through an available API, industry standard VDCP, and Sony BVW 75 Protocol support for external timecode, and GPI/O.

  • With full-featured two or four channel versions and direct operation with Avid and other editors, AirSpeed 5000 gives you the confidence of a professional broadcast server that can fit budgets. Fully tested and qualified workflow solutions range from standalone operation with Media Composer to workflow enabled solutions with Interplay | Production, Avid ISIS shared storage, and more. When ready, add the Avid Interplay | Production, iNEWS, and iNEWS | Command systems for central asset management, complete news content management, and assisted playback automation.
