Model Details

The XT[2]® is an instant storage device. This production server allows broadcasters, in real-time, to record, control, and
play media easily, quickly, and intelligently. Originally developed for the fast-paced environment of sports production, the
XT[2]® has become the field-proven basis for workflows in any live or near-live mobile and studio production.
The XT[2]® offers permanent multi-cameras/multi-channels ingest of audio and video content in SD or HD originated
from any source. Up to 6 channels (e.g. recording of 3 cameras and 3 play-backs), its internal 3.0 TB capacity is able to
store around 250 hours of TV at bitrates up to 200 Mbps. Fully scalable and upgradable, it offers unique performance for
playback, on-the-fly editing or for transfer to post production, local or central storage, archiving and more.
