This 2U rack mount product was developed for entertainment, sports and news. It provided multi HD video and audio I/O for capture, processing and feed and used RAID storage.
This customer wanted to maintain a family look with it’s predecessor 3U rack mount products. A new extrusion die was cut to provide the front panel profile they were looking for. For use in-studio the chassis needed to be quiet. The chassis design approach needed to provide for moving the cooling fans from the rear panel to a midpoint in the chassis setting up two zone cooling. Fans were also mounted on elastomeric isolators to reduce resonance. RAID system drives were place in front for easy access and upgrade.
The main chassis was of riveted construction with removable rear and top panels. This provided easy access for assembly as well as updating configurable modules.
