Flexible Configurations

K2 Summit 3G Production Clients are available in 2 or 4 channel models with internal or external RAID protected storage or connected to a large SAN system with up to 150 channels or more. Systems can easily be expanded with more storage, more channels or more bandwidth and compression formats can easily be added or changed within each client.

Multiple Format Capabilities

The K2 Summit 3G is the only video server that provides agile codecs enabling playback of SD or HD content seamlessly on the same timeline with any supported format (DV/DVCPRO, MPEG-2, AVC-Intra, and H.264/AVCHD). It automatically up-, down-, or cross-converts a clip to the desired output resolution providing full support for all SD and HD formats.

Built-in Mix-Effects

For generating quick highlight packages or simple playlists, often all that is required is simple dissolves between two clips. Each channel in the K2 Summit 3G has this capability built-in (most servers require two channels to do a mix effect). An integrated mixer dissolves between two clips or to a matte color.

Built-in Multiviewer and Monitor

To easily monitor each channel without extra equipment or desk space, the built-in Multiviewer displays all 4 channels on a standard VGA monitor with transport controls for recording, playback jog/shuttle, or stopping along with audio meters, clip name and other important data. Each channel has an on-air SDI output and an SDI monitoring output with timecode burn-in.

ChannelFlex™ Compatible

ChannelFlex doubles K2 Summit 3G's capability from four bidirectional channels to application-specific configurations equivalent to eight channels:
  • Record up to 8 camera feeds
  • Record up to two 2X/3X super slo-mo cameras
  • Record up to four 3D cameras or video+key pairs
  • Play up to four 3D files or video+key pairs
