High-Productivity Computing

Delivering breakthrough results, demanding efficiency and consistently staying on the cutting edge is what high-productivity computing is all about. Whether it's designing a multimillion dollar aircraft or editing a commercial, supercomputers enable you reach your aspirations rapidly. The idea is about delivering competitive advantages and technology that optimizes workflow in an environment designed for productivity. By investing in these technologies, enterprises can turn data into information for making correct decisions faster and better than their competition.

I/O Partners understands that to truly deliver breakthrough results, you need a computing environment incorporating three key aspects:

  • Scalability - Knowing there is flexibility for increased demands
  • Resource management - knowing all components are working together
  • Deployability- Knowing there will be ease in implementation

SGI Media Server™ for Broadcast-Models MSB 320, 380
The world of broadcasting has changed dramatically over the past few years and broadcast organizations demand increased efficiency and technical innovation that servers based on dedicated proprietary technology no longer meet. Scalability, format agility and integration between ingest, browse, rough-cuts, graphics, news edit, media management and archive systems is what broadcasters demand today. Utilizing robust, open systems as the basis for media serving allows for streamlining of the broadcaster's workflow.

SGI Media Server for broadcast is a unique offering, designed to manage both video and data in a broadcast facility. File-based video managed as data can be distributed over data networks with efficiency and speed. Superior LAN/WAN media distribution and supporting industry-standard networking protocols such as 100Base-TX Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet and ATM is standard for this server. This open-architecture and high-bandwidth networking approach goes a long way to reduce bottlenecks and allows faster to-air operations while ensuring interoperability with third-party devices.
