D³-Ingest is a powerful acquisition solution which supports multiple recording formats and content sources. It can work under either stand-alone mode, or distributed mode, providing various ingest options, such as scheduled recording, on-demand recording, and mirrored recording. Based on a distributed system architecture, D3-Ingest can easily support large number of ingest channels working simultaneously, and automatically trigger video matrix or satellite receiver for switching multiple signal feeds.

Distributed Mode

Stand-alone Mode

Increased Efficiency

Supports editing during ingest, clips can be shared & edited, seconds after recording starts;

Automatic quality control, greatly saves time on manual content checking;

Large number of ingest channels and VTRs can be controlled via centralized control stations, very few manual operations are needed;

Automatically switches multiple video routers and satellite receivers;

Offers repeat recording capability, automatically process same ingest tasks at the same time every day/week/month;

Automatic clip segmentation can be applied, offers better access for long duration ingested clips

Multi-format Recording

D³-Ingest supports multiple codecs such as DV, DVC PRO, H.264, MPEG2, QuickTime, DNxHD, DVCPRO HD, and many more. It also supports all the common wrappers including AVI, MXF, MOV, MPG, WMV, etc.;

Both low-res and high-res clips can be simultaneously generated during ingest, offering great flexibility for further editing and browsing purposes.

System Redundancy

Supports master/slave configuration, facilitating mirrored clip recording;

Clips can be mirrored in both local and network storage;

Fail over mechanism, automatically switches signal feeds and ingest channels in the case of ingest server fails;

Easy clip sharing

Ingested clips & metadata can be easily shared among multiple 3rd party systems including non-linear editing system, MAM system, and playout system.


Monitoring Interface

The system provides complete monitoring features. All ingest tasks and the entire device status can be easily displayed in a user friendly GUI.
