NEWBURY PARK, Calif. October 10, 2017 – 360 Systems, a leading manufacturer of broadcast video and audio products, together with DNF Controls, an award-winning developer of device control solutions, today unveiled an affordable solution for the scheduled recording and playout of video server-based program and commercial content.
The solution is based on 360 System’s flexible new TSS range of multi-format video servers featuring record/play in 720p, 1080i or SD on any channel, and using standard codec and file formats such as H.264 or MPEG-2 in mxf, mp4, mpg or mov containers. The bundle incorporates a tailored version of DNF Controls’ proven SPS series, an operator-friendly server management system for calendar-based acquisition and play-to-air scheduling. It supports Time-of-Day, Back-to-Back, Manual, and Remotely Triggered playout, as well as Secondary Events via GPI/O or other optional protocols for routers, master control switchers, graphics, and more. Drag & Drop functionality permits modifications — edit or append the playlist; add or delete elements — even while a list is running.
“Combining DNF’s functionality with the new TSS Server series will give our customers a sophisticated, yet cost-effective scheduling option for our multi-format video servers. With the support of our partner DNF, 360 Systems continues to offer budget-friendly video server solutions without sacrificing quality and reliability,” said John Hall, director of global sales at 360 Systems.
“Both our companies have survived and thrived through many format changes and technology advancements; it was a pleasure to combine forces with 360 Systems on developing a common-sense solution that makes the business of program distribution more accessible,” added Dan Fogel, chief technology officer of DNF Controls.
The combined 360/DNF solution is available for immediate delivery through 360 Systems.
