360 Systems' HD Servers Now Compatible with GVG Infinity Camera and Edius NLE

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. -- 360 Systems' new MAXX-1200HD and 2400HD servers are now JPEG-2000 file compatible with Grass Valley's Infinity(TM) camcorder and Edius NX(TM) workstation.

The 10-bit images created in JPEG-2000 by Grass Valley's Infinity camcorder can now be directly imported to 360 System's HD servers without transcoding. Wrapped as MXF files, video can be exported quickly from a 360 Systems server to Grass Valley's Edius NX workstation for editing. File-based return delivers the edited JPEG-2000 project to the server for playout.

360 Systems' MXF file transfers are fast, and maintain the 10-bit quality of the original image. Robert Easton, president of 360 Systems, states that JPEG-2000 is one of the few 10-bit video formats, delivering four times the chroma depth and dynamic range of standard 8-bit video formats - an attractive feature that is driving adoption of the format.

360 Systems' MAXX-HD servers provide up to four video channels, 3-D playout, outstanding slow motion performance, and a feature set that make it a first choice for broadcast, production, and Pro A/V markets. Recognized with the prestigious Pick Hit award at both NAB and IBC in 2009, the MAXX HD servers provide unmatched price/performance and a high level of reliability.
