SHINE Server


SHINE Server is a modular software package devised for integrators looking for powerful and flexible videoservers to be implemented with standard IT components. Integrators are free to choose hardware configuration and then install SHINE Server firmware to get a multichannel videoserver ready to fit customers’ needs.

It is the answer to today’s demand from broadcasters to have solutions able to face the rising range of digital SD/HD workflows in their environment.

SHINE Server is designed for easy integration with third party components and automation systems and therefore SHINE based videoservers can be supplied either in addition as well as replacement of existing ones.

Modularity and scalability make this product the right choice for integrators, letting them configure videoservers with the only channels and features required by the projects and enabling them to offer affordable and tailor-made solutions to their customers.
