Alcorn McBride is now shipping the Digital Binloop HD, a 3RU product that provides playback of up to eight HD video channels. Ideal for themed entertainment, museums, and other applications requiring high-resolution video playback, the Digital Binloop HD stores video on CompactFlash so it has no moving parts to wear out. It handles video resolutions of 1080i, 720p, 480p/576p, or 480i/576i. The Digital Binloop HD outputs video via HDMI or HD-SDI (SMPTE-292M) with embedded audio. Analog video formats include component (YPbPr) or RGB, with composite standard-definition monitor output; the unit can offer simultaneous SD and HD monitor outputs. In addition to the unit’s HD video capabilities, the Digital Binloop HD also supports stereo audio along with Dolby or DTS bit streams. It can also output networked audio via a CobraNet option. Any or all tracks can be synchronized with each other or with an external source. The unit can be controlled via SMPTE, RS-232, MIDI, or Ethernet.
