MediaStar Multi slot 3RU Chassis with Integral Power Supply (Models 770 and 770-DR)
The MediaStar 770 and 770DR rack chassis are designed to house and power the range of MediaStar “blade” based products. These include MediaStar Encoders, LAN-Casters, Re-Casters and Multi-Mux units (which are supplied separately to the rack enclosure).
Model 770 is fitted with a single power supply unit and can support up to nine blades. Model 770-DR is delivered with a full “hot swap” dual redundant power supply capability and can support up to eight blades. The PSUs provide both DC power for each of the processor blades and forced air cooling to the whole rack enclosure.
Three LED indicators show the status of the LV rails and cooling fan operation and will signal status to the Media Manager management software (model 467) and optionally a corporate SNMP monitoring system. Both models occupy 3Ru of rack space.
When processor blades are fitted into the rack, their RF and Video/Audio inputs are accessible from the rear side, and network and control interfaces are available on the face. Blades may be “hot swapped” and will retain their current configurations. AC power to the rack is via IEC connector(s) on the rear.
Spare power supply units are available for both models as well as an upgrade kit to allow current field installed 770 single PSU models to be upgraded to dual redundant capability.
