ÆON is a multichannel videoserver designed for streamlining the digital video workflow of modern broadcasters with a flexible and reliable turnkey solution.

It exploits the power of two 64bit Intel Xeon processors and provides rack-mountable chassis, redundant components, SD/HD SDI input and output and bi/tri-level genlock.

ÆON is the right solution for tapeless transition and SD/HD digital video workflows, and it can be controlled through protocols by third-party systems bringing the versatility to be supplied either in addition as well as replacement of existing videoservers.

Delivering the advanced and powerful features of SHINE Media Platform ÆON can be integrated in wide range of broadcast environments, from simple ingest to Stereoscopic 3D playout.
