sQ server is designed for media management . Based on a realtime operating system and rugged design, sQ servers can deliver 24/7/365 operation for high-pressure fast-turnaround workflows like news and sports. One or more sQ servers can be controlled by an external manager, called an ISA, enabling fully scalable solutions to be built to meet the needs of the world’s largest content creators.
The sQ Server is the ingest, editing and playout server at the heart of Enterprise sQ. The system scaling provides any practical number of ingest and output ports; storage from as little as a hundred to many thousands of hours and direct support for tens or even hundreds of editors. Media is encoded and stored using industry-standard codecs and managed at the level of video frames. FrameMagicTM technology guarantees low latency workflows with automated protection of source files to edited sequences. Tandem encoding of broadcast and proxy files ensure immediate access for all users.
The latest sQ 1200 and sQ 1800 servers offer all these qualities with a smaller form factor, lower power consumption plus 3G SDI, 16 channel audio support, more storage and more disk bandwidth. 10G Ethernet connections deliver the additional bandwidth to editors and other system components.
Securing overall performance is essential to maintaining end-user satisfaction, which in turn results in sustaining and growing revenue. It is important to take steps to limit the risk of incidents taking place through fault prevention and planning and, if incidents do occur, to ensure that downtime is as short as possible.
