[SatNews] Tekserve is demonstrating a complete video workflow solution at NetApp’s NAB booth (SL9510), featuring the new NetApp E-5500 series and EF550 all-flash array.
The joint demonstration will highlight 4K 60 frame-per-second (high frame rate) acquisition and playback. Region-of-interest control enables replay of an HD-sized frame from within the acquired 4K content. A joystick controls frame position, pan and tilt during slomo playback. The extreme performance and enterprise-grade reliability of the NetApp E-5500 series and EF550 all-flash array, when used with ATTO Technology Celerity 164E quad-channel PCIE 3.0 host bus adapter card running Multi-path Director software, makes shared 4K productions a reality.
With density and modular flexibility for the widest range of data-intensive workloads, NetApp’s new E-Series controllers are plug and play with the existing line of modular chassis holding 12, 24, or 60 drives. These chassis can be configured with SAS, NL-SAS or SATA hard disk drives or SSDs. In addition, hybrid architectures can mix types in a single enclosure. NetApp's EF550 all-flash array can independently scale compute and capacity up to 96TB at 450K IOPS with less than one millisecond latency. Designed to support the recording and distribution from 4K sources for ROI HD extraction using AJA’s TruZoom™ application and Corvid Ultra hardware with TruScale™ card’s superior scaling technology for live-action sports broadcasts; a version of the complete Tekserve workflow solution was first used earlier this year during a major U.S. sports broadcast.
