Product Image

Built to generate bigger returns for your business.

HDXchange makes it quicker and easier to get great-looking content ready for a wide range of play-out platforms - from conventional broadcast, tape and DVD to the web, IPTV and mobile devices. It’s designed to simplify today’s collaborative workflows and is a powerful, scalable platform built on widely recognised open industry standards - so you're not locked into proprietary acquisition formats or media. HDXchange is also agnostic to the type of NLE editing system that can be used directly on the system – minimising re-training requirements.

A key advantage of HDXchange Version 5 is its expansion of the range of ingest content to include almost any video, audio, graphic and document format, providing a robust and easy-to-use Media Asset Management (MAM) solution. MAM used to be viewed as a requirement for only the largest broadcast installations, however in today’s 24/7 world with multiple distribution platforms, including the web, the ability of content creators to quickly access valuable assets is a critical advantage for most businesses.

At the heart of HDXchange is a rugged, fully RAID protected central server, managed by a resilient database. A simple management GUI allows administrators to create and manage individual users or powerful workgroups who can seamlessly collaborate together on shared projects. As your storage needs grow, HDXchange can scale with you by adding additional disk based storage for online processes or a near line solutions such as a tape-based archive system like Sony’s PetaSite.
