Why choose FastServe video servers?
Turn around content lightning-fast
FastServe is designed to accelerate today’s demanding HD, UHD, and HDR workflows, so you can get content on air quickly. Plus, with tight MediaCentral integration, you can automate ingest and file check-in, edit media while capturing it, and play back content as it’s being transferred.
Transition HD and HDR production to studio video over IP
FastServe supports the widely adopted SMPTE ST-2110 standard and Networked Media Open Specification (NMOS), opening up more flexibility in your workflow. The servers seamlessly integrate with a variety of studio video over IP-enabled third-party solutions and can be controlled by NMOS servers for on-the-fly remote configuration.
Get great channel flexibility
FastServe supports higher channel counts per video server, offering a lower overall cost per channel in a smaller footprint. With up to four UHD or eight HD I/O channels in FastServe | Ingest, up to two UHD or eight HD outputs in FastServe | Playout, and up to four HD I/O channels (or two UHD I/O channels coming soon) in FastServe | I/O—you can configure the ins and outs for your recording and playout needs.
The new MediaCentral | Acquire app - part of the web-based MediaCentral | Cloud UX - puts the power of acquisition in the hands of your users in the office or remote. The app can control multiple FastServe devices for the most efficient way to get media and valuable metadata directly to your loggers, journalists, producers, and editors.
