Avid Technology has unveiled its Xdeck v1.0 device at the Experience Avid|naked event in Cologne, Germany.“By recording media directly to the Avid Unity MediaNetwork, the Avid Xdeck system allows multiple users to access and edit footage seconds after recording begins,” explains Kevin Usher, European broadcast product marketing manager. “With unmatched control and flexibility, at greater speeds and lower cost than ever before,” Usher concludes.Each Xdeck device allows ingest of a single feed directly into Avid Unity MediaNetwork. Combined with Avid’s PortServer Pro solution, it can handle more than 50 simultaneous ingest channels. Smaller facilities that require fewer feeds can connect the Xdeck device to Avid’s Ethernet-based LANShare solution for a lower cost, but still powerful, ingest capability.
