Ripley replay server and 4-camera videoReferee® system housed inside a standard size control panel debuts at IBC 2018

TORRANCE, CA (August 16, 2018) – At IBC (booth 8.B40),, a leading international producer of cost-effective high performance video record and instant replay systems, will debut the world’s smallest video replay server. Designated Ripley, this unique video replay server is configured within the form factor of the replay controller.

“Ripley is another significant step that is taking in making our solutions affordable and desirable for the broadest range of sports production,” said Michael Gilman, CEO of “This controller/server combo builds on the success of our Simple R and Jr. products: but in this case, our design engineers have succeeded in creating a fully functional server inside a 4.5 kg controller. This opens up a whole new world of opportunities for anybody who wants a broadcast quality slow motion instant replay server for sports and video-judging applications.”

Ripley is configured with eight separate bi-directional HD/SD SDI-interfaces supporting HD/SD channels in a 442 configuration (4 record, 4 search and 2 replay channels). Despite its ultra-compact form factor, Ripley supports 2x-3x SuperMotion cameras.

Also, Ripley can be used as a four-camera sports video judging unit. It has two graphics ports for the main interface and multi-viewer monitors. If the operator has only one monitor available, he can easily switch between these modes using the unit’s MultiSkin function. For easy integration within wider workflows, Ripley comes fitted with LTC input, an RS232/422 port as well as two In and two Out GPO interfaces.

Another unique feature of Ripley is four SDHC memory card slots for video import and export. Four-channel recording is achieved with H.264 or AVC-Intra 50Mbit codecs. Within the server, the recorded material can be exported for NLE editing by most popular codecs including ProRes, AVID DNxHD, XDCAM 50, DVCProHD, AVC-Intro.

As standard, the server has a 1GbE networking interface for file exchange between other systems. This combo server also includes two free options – a transfer (networking) option for exchanging clips and playlists within servers and a telestrator (Game Analyzer), which allows drawing on the video being played. reports that Ripley has been developed as a replay server for fly-away installations. Its robustness alongside with distinctive intuitive user interface makes it an ideal redundancy unit.
