Rohde & Schwarz, a global leader in broadcast media technologies has announced the introduction of a new member of its SpycerNode media storage family. Completely Ethernet based, the R&S®SpycerNode SC targets the storage requirements of both broadcast and post production workflows. SpycerNode SC is designed to fulfil the requirements of modern post production teams, where performance is a higher priority than redundancy, but reliability, compact design and affordability are key requirements.

Based on the latest High Performance Computing (HPC) technology SpycerNode SC is capable of delivering a data rate of up to 22 GB/s within a single device. Rohde & Schwarz production asset management software, SpycerPAM, can run natively on SpycerNode SC eliminating the need for separate infrastructure or further interoperation. All SpycerNode products use 400 Gb ethernet connectivity to enable both SAN and NAS operation within a single system. Ease of set-up, ease of integration and ease of maintenance were key design goal to reduce IT complexity or intervention.

“Creative teams need to collaborate without fear of technology limitations dictating awkward workflows,” comments Andreas Loges, Vice President Media Technologies at Rohde & Schwarz, “the powerful, unique performance and redundancy features of SpycerNode SC ensures that talented content creators can access assets fast and work with confidence.”

SpycerNode SC can accommodate up to 60 drives configurable in sets of 30 spinning or flash. Fully equipped the net capacity in a single unit is 800 TB spinning or 430 TB flash.

SpycerNode SC can perform as a stand-alone unit or configurable within larger clusters of a SpycerNode system. Using Rohde & Schwarz’s metro cluster technology, SpycerNodeSC can be used in environments with high redundancy requirements, such as broadcast production and playout workflows.
