Utility Allows User to Schedule Ingest for Automatic Recording

The Media Bank ASR allows the broadcaster to schedule and automatically record satellite or other inputs with high-end multi-stream audio/video encoding.

Operated from a Microsoft Windows 2000? platform, the ASR converts traditional audio and video signals into studio-quality MPEG-2 digital streams. These can then be stored on a hard drive and/or transferred via a network, ultimately to be decoded with a Media Bank Video Server or any other MPEG-2 compliant server for broadcast or personal viewing.
