Flexible Configuration

High flexibility

  • Three types of memory card sets are available to choose from: 0.25TB, 0.5TB, and 1TB
  • Hot swappable cards make it easy to expand I/O's and memory capacity. Add channels, formats and bandwidth as needed.
  • The system can be upgraded automatically by changing the configuration of the cards and software.

One Chassis Solution

  • Offering encoders, decoders, flash memory storage, controllers and system management, all in a single 5RU chassis. Minimizing chassis size, lowering power consumption, fewer internal cable connections, hot swappable, easy maintenance contribute to a greener footprint.

Free Slot Configuration

  • ON-AIR MAX FLASH™ has a free slot architecture. Up to any 16 cards can be installed into a single 5RU chassis. The card combination and slot location can be adjusted by user's request.
