Analog Way launches next-gen media servers for large-scale applications

Analog Way has released its next generation of Linux-based media servers: the Picturall Mark II series.

The series is designed for large-scale events and fixed installation for applications such as museums and houses of worship.

It replaces the current Picturall media servers. It includes four products: Picturall Pro Mark II, Picturall Quad Mark II, Picturall Quad Compact Mark II and Picturall Twin Compact Mark II.

The series can drive up to 16 4K@60Hz LED videowall controllers or video projectors from a single server unit and can play back media up to 16K@60Hz or uncompressed image sequences up to 8K@60Hz. Picturall Mark II media servers feature a redundant, hot-swappable power supplies option.

Servers can receive up to six low-latency input cards to capture either up to 24x 1080p@60Hz or 6x 4K@60Hz sources. A wide selection of input interfaces is available supporting one or more channels of 3G-SDI, HDMI 1.4 or HDMI 2.0. The Picturall Mark II media servers can also receive several network video streams and are compatible with NDI live video streaming. They can also display HTML-based web content with full Java script support.

They come standard with read-intensive professional drives. Several storage options are available to store hours of high-quality uncompressed video content. The Picturall Mark II media servers also offer high network bandwidth with two standard 10Gb/s Ethernet connectors for faster transmission of massive media files and for more networked video streams.

The Picturall Mark II media servers offer synchronised multi-channel audio playback and support real-time audio de-embedding and routing from HDMI or SDI sources, network streams and web sources. The Picturall Mark II media servers feature several optional audio interfaces and are also compatible with a wide variety of third-party multi-channel USB audio interfaces.

All products in the range feature Art-Net interface and Ethernet control via a standard TCP/IP socket connection. They can be also configured and operated by the Picturall Commander user interface.
