New World Symphony with a a massive 4K Ultra-HD video system

R&S SpycerNode delivers performance and security

The New World Symphony (NWS), an educational institution training the next generation of orchestra and ensemble musicians, has deployed the Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) SpycerNode storage solution as part of a nearly $8.5 million upgrade to transition its video production, distribution and presentation technology to 4K Ultra-HD.

NWS has installed a 1.4 Petabyte (PB) R&S SpycerNode to record and archive 4K Ultra-HD program feeds and ISO camera shots of orchestral performances. The solution also stores productions of NWS rental clients. The R&S SpycerNode leverages a High-Performance Computing (HPC) file system for seamless workflow integration and HPC RAID technology for comprehensive redundancy.

The storage solution is fully scalable and can be adapted to capacity and bandwidth demands during operation. Multiple R&S SpycerNode devices with different configurations can be combined. The New World Symphony deployed its R&S SpycerNode in its IT server room. The unit takes up less than half of a 72-inch-high rack, which later can be populated with up to about 5 PB as future needs require, says Slentz.

NWS transports signals in the ProRes 4444 format via 12G SDI cables. Its new production setup boasts 30 12G SDI camera drops, 22 4K Ultra-HD cameras, including units from Hitachi, Panasonic and Io Industries, 12G production switcher, 144 x 144 routing switcher and a new Ravenna-based audio-over-IP network.
