Harmonic today announced that it has added the MediaDeck 7000 system to its Omneon Spectrum media server product line.

The fully integrated, four-channel MediaDeck 7000 system is the newest member of the Spectrum media server family, and it offers multiple-codec playback, up/down/cross conversion, HD and SD simulcast capabilities and two-channel modularity.

“With broad and flexible codec support, as well as valuable conversion and simulcast capabilities, the MediaDeck 7000 system is optimised to serve as an ingest or playout edge server, delay server, or stand-alone media server,”said Mark Cousins, senior product line manager for media servers at Harmonic.

The MediaDeck 7000 system employs two hot-pluggable MediaPort 7000 Series modules to provide video and audio I/O, as well as interfaces for external reference, timecode, and automation control.

Harmonic said the modules can be mixed in any combination, providing flexibility for support of mixed-codec (MPEG-2, XDCAM HD, AVC-Intra, and SD/HD DV) workflows.
