Pixelmetrix, the global expert in Preventive Monitoring for digital television and IPTV networks, unveils an advanced Compliance Recording solution for Multi-Channel TS at IBC 2007 – DVStor-Flashback and DVStor-DAS (Direct-Attached-Storage).
The DVStor-Flashback examines the transport stream as it records, and reconstructs the Electronic Program Guide during playback (video and embedded meta-data). The DVStor-Flashback selects the video content out of the TS and trans-rates it to VHS quality to save on storage space, maximizing recording duration. This allows for fast and easy playback of archived segments, facilitating quick look up.
Users also get the option to play out stored media on a remote PC with popular third party TS player applications. The DVStor-Flashback also provides time stamp burn-in as an overlay during play out and recording.
“The DVStor-Flashback is perfect for complete transport stream compliance recording for broadcasters, given the proven trans-rating technology, flexibility of attached storage and instant access capability,” said Danny Wilson, Pixelmetrix President & CEO. “In this digital age of content broadcast, government and business requirements for compliance recording of digital broadcast systems can be fulfilled with the DVStor-Flashback,” he added.
The DVStor-Flashback is a compact compliance recording solution that allows storage of up to 180 days on a 4RU package. For extended long-term storage requirements of up to 3 years, the DVStor-Flashback can be supplemented with up to four Direct-Attached-Storage (DAS) modules. The DAS modules provide instant access capability, acting as a huge hard disk with complete RAID-6 protection. With storage capacities of 15 TB and 7.5 TB in module sizes of 4RU and 2RU respectively, the DVStor-DAS provides flexible recording solutions. It can capture every bit of broadcasted information with full transport stream archival.
At Booth 1.339A, Pixelmetrix will also showcase its new Electronic Couch Potato™ (ECP) and Consolidator™, the EndGame™, DVShift-S21, Video Validator™, DVStation-IP³™, DVStation-Mini™, DVStorIP-Gen™, DVB-H and DVB-S2.
Pixelmetrix develops a host of IPTV and Preventive Monitoring systems that offer unique attributes and versatility, allowing operators to achieve end-to-end visibility and keep tabs on their network architecture.
