disguise announced the launch of its new vx 4 server, which has been engineered to play back video at higher quality and resolution than ever before.
The vx 4 is optimized for playing up to four times uncompressed 4K60 using its high-performance NVME RAID drive array, as well as the capability of playing lossless 10-bit video. Additionally, it can capture either 16 3G-SDI sources or four 4K sources (2160p60). With the introduction of r15.2 and the vx 4, disguise now supports HDR content and provides a means of applying color profiles. Consisting of a colour space and a gamma curve, users can now set a color profile to their content or capture images and disguise does the real-time conversion.
The vx 4 also offers users a choice of content quality using industry recognised codecs, from delivering high quantities of compressed content to the higher visual fidelity of uncompressed image sequences (TGA, TIFF and DPX). The new flagship pro range server has even more network bandwidth with dual 25GbE and dual 10GbE ports, enabling faster media file transfer and higher resolution networked live video capture.
Like other pro range servers, the vx 4 is ultra rugged with a cross-braced stiff chassis and isolated core components. The new chassis design also features a new hi-res OLED front panel for more detailed system information. The vx 4 also features disguise’s unique VFC technology, which allows users to output DisplayPort, DVI, SDI or HDMI without changing the system, as well as mix signal formats and resolution types in the same project, with guaranteed frame synchronization and near-zero latency. The vx 4 ships standard with the latest in disguise’s VFC technology, the HDMI 2.0 VFC cards.
The disguise vx 4 is available for shipping and here it is.
