7thSense Launches Nano-SDI for Entry-Level Playback & Versatile Content Management
West Sussex, UK – 14 July 2016 – 7thSense has recently expanded its industry-leading media server portfolio with the addition of the Nano-SDI Media Server from the renowned Delta Media Server range. The product, an entry-level media server, is a highly affordable way of introducing uncompressed media playback into workflow for fixed installations.
John Harding, Senior Electronics Engineer at 7thSense explained; “Users of Nano-SDI will benefit from incredibly easy content management and seamless playlist operation. We developed this as a solution primarily for theme parks, museums, science centres and attractions – venues with a lot of content, a lot of displays, and a need to quickly and easily deliver media without compromise on quality. Already, we’re seeing significant interest from those who had previously used media format-specific HD playback servers that are no longer available.”
A key feature-set of the new Nano-SDI is that of extensive control capability. A new, simplified web browser-based user interface has been developed specifically for simple playlist configurations while full Delta GUI control is still available for more complex applications.
Network-based high quality preview via web browser plus web control over playback, playlist creation and interface customisation makes Nano-SDI a completely versatile option for clients seeking a simplistic yet high performance playback server.
Additionally, Nano-SDI boasts a broad range of external control options including TCP, UDP, ArtNet, DMS, Touch and RS422 Sony Protocol for true flexibility and fast compatibility with most installations.
Nano-SDI is available in two configurations: Nano-1-SDI with up to 2K / HD 60p output in both compressed and uncompressed playback formats. Nano-1-SDI-4K is capable of up to 4K 60p SDI uncompressed output with storage and playback upgrade options available.
Both configurations are capable of playing uncompressed or Codec-based media (including MPEG-2, M2V, MP4 and more) and with comprehensive real-time warp and blend features in-built.
The new features developed for Nano-SDI will be rolled out across the Delta Media Server product range.
