ArKaos introduces A30 Media Server – the ultimate combination of performance and reliability
Posted on Monday, June 6th, 2011
ArKaos, the world-leading provider of technology for live visual performances, is pleased to announce its new hardware A30 Media Server.
Built for the MediaMaster software, the A30 delivers outstanding performance, stability and durability. It is the result of the latest research made by ArKaos in terms of raw performance but also structural strength, vibration protection and heat tolerance.
The case has been designed to allow a very efficient air flow. Several fans, protected by a dust filter, are located at the front of the case and can be easily serviced without opening the rest of the case. This is done through a special door that gives access to both the fans and the filter without exposing any cables or electrical connections. This is very handy when working on long tours.
The custom-made case provides a very convenient display on the front which allows the server to be used without the need to connect to an external display. The front cover also provides a large LED strip that gives feedback on the state of operation of the server.
Every aspect of the server has been carefully studied. Neutrik connectors are used exclusively on the back of the case to provide sturdy connections. Similarly for the audio, the server provides balanced audio on XLR connectors for both input and output.
This incredibly powerful system is delivered with a vast library of high quality digital media from the world’s best visual content providers.
It is pre-configured to work directly with all market-leading DMX lighting desks. Everything has been designed so you just have to plug and play.
The ArKaos A30 guarantees smooth playback of nine simultaneous HD layers or six Full HD* layers on up to 6 outputs.
