Product highlights

  • Optimize your media workflow
  • Create higher-quality content faster
  • Gain flexibility while lowering costs
  • Simplify and accelerate production with a choice of three configurations—FastServe | Ingest, FastServe | Live Edit, and FastServe | Playout. Whether you need a powerful server that streamlines media ingest and file check-in, a dedicated playout server, or a complete turnkey solution that offers ingest, editing, playout, and hands-on control in one, you get the media efficiency you need to get on air faster.
  • When used with MediaCentral and Media Composer, you can log and edit media as it’s being captured, enabling almost instant content turnaround. And with support for a wide range of HD, UHD, and HDR formats and codecs, you can modernize your workflow while increasing production value at every stage—from ingest and edit, to replay and playout.
  • FastServe features a modular architecture that enables you to be “future-ready” right now. It offers an easy transition from SDI to video over IP through interchangeable interfaces—including support for SMPTE 2110 (studio video over IP)—providing a more flexible production environment and wider vendor integration while reducing infrastructure costs.
