THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HARDATA, a developer of workflow efficiency solutions for the broadcast and entertainment industries, today announced its new HARDATA.INGEST server 1520, designed to ease the video input workload of today's busy broadcaster with advanced automation features and seamless integration with other system components.

The two-channel HARDATA.INGEST records and stores video content that users can then preview, catalog and mark. The server gives users the flexibility to manually import video or to schedule recordings either from a workstation or remotely using video desk control protocol (VDCP).  Once recorded, the server can be set to transfer clips to other workflow components - making the content quickly available to editors.

"This automated recording server was part of the HARDATA Video EcoSystem product roadmap from the start," said Philip Cox, HARDATA president and CEO. "We now have a comprehensive, super adaptable and future-proof system of products that satisfies the needs of most broadcasters launching new stations or expanding operations".

The server records in SD and full HD with "on the fly" up/down conversion on playback and features 1.8 TB of free storage.

The HARDATA.INGEST server 1520 is available now and will be on display at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 12-17, in HARDATA's booth #8.C16. For more information, please visit www.hardata.com.
