90 Day Compliance Recording for 1 – 48 Channels
Cambridge Imaging Systems have partnered with leading storage vendor SGI to produce a world beating ‘one box’ compliance recording system. The solution can record between 1 and 48 channels for 90 days and supports both SD and HD channels.
Orbital software is preloaded on SGI’s Modular InfiniteStorage Server – a breakthrough storage server platform that delivers extreme density in a 3U chassis. The storage space available ensures that the entire broadcast stream as originally transmitted can be captured – including all EPG data – no need for downsampling or lost data.
Orbital software enables broadacasters or producers to review the transmitted content, export for further analysis, repurposing or editing, or simply to provide a copy to the broadcast regulator. Orbital also integrates seamlessly with Imagen2 making it possible to build up an online archive from broadcast material.
+ Simple ‘One Box’ solution
