EditShare releases Geevs x10 update
EditShare announced the availability of its newly updated Geevs X10 broadcast I/O solution.
Designed to seamlessly integrate with EditShare Flow media asset management, XStream EFS scale-out shared storage and Ark archiving, Geevs completes the EditShare end-to-end workflow with extensive tools to manage ingest, distribution and station playout for programs as well as fast-turn for news and sports. The new hardware offers significant speed improvements for managing frame rates, complex codecs and status graphic overlays.
The all-new Geevs X10 boasts a sleek compact design and powerful multi-threaded CPU, which can support up to eight streams of AVC-intra in 1080i (4/4 configuration). The new sleeker chassis features six-caddy media RAID 6 drives for local storage and is equipped with two high-speed 10gig network ports as a standard configuration.
In addition to key hardware improvements, the accompanying Geevs V7 software update supports MOS channel selection from the rundown, as well as support for multiple variations of Apple ProRes including 1080p25, 29.97 and 30 fps which complement the existing 1080p50, 59.94 and 60 fps ProRes, supported formats. New templates allow capture and playout of the recently popular AVC-i 50 MXF OP1a format. Geevs Simple Delay has also been reintroduced to support channel +1 playout, a feature that facilitates one-hour time-shift of a main service channel.
