SeaChange Bows New Play-to-Air Systems

SeaChange International has begun taking orders for what it is calling its "next generation" play to air systems, the new Universal MediaLibrary 7200 and the MediaClient 8200.
Both expand the company's support for tapeless workflows and the playout of multiple formats in a variety of resolutions and its use of open standard formats.

With the introduction of the two products, SeaChange moves from its proprietary media file formats to supporting open standard formats, such as MXF and MOVE.
The MediaClient8200 includes configurations for SD only and SD/HD to ensure seamless migration of analog to digital. The Universal MediaLibrary 7200 has a 10GigE storage infrastructure and has Linux-based servers that offer constant access to all drivers with a massive storage capacity of up 144 terabytes.
