One Stop Systems Provides a Rugged Touring Media Server for d3 Technologies

ESCONDIDO, California – August 13, 2014 – One Stop Systems, Inc. (OSS), a provider of PCI Express (PCIe) expansion technology and custom servers, today announced that it is providing two custom 4U rackmount rugged media servers for d3 Technologies, a provider of video production solutions. The integrated servers utilize One Stop Systems’ core capabilities of design and manufacture of custom rugged rackmount systems and its expertise as the leading provider of PCIe expansion products.

Together forming the new d3 pro range, the d3 4x4pro and d3 4x2pro media servers include custom anodized aluminum chassis integrated with a number of I/O and specialty PCIe that ensure enough power, convenience and flexibility for today’s shows as well as for tomorrow’s.

Far more than servers, the d3 4x4pro and d3 4x2pro platforms include powerful graphics capabilities, video capture from four independent SDI cameras, Solid State Media Storage, Broadcast Quality Audio, and PCIe expansion capabilities. The components combined with d3’s developed technology result in blistering performance, including playback of 8x 4K videos, the equivalent of 32 HD channels simultaneously.

d3 is the world’s first integrated video production suite, based around a real-time 3D stage simulator. d3 lets you work with props, venues, LED screens, projection, lighting and moving stage elements. This is the single software solution needed to design, present, communicate and sequence and your show. To playback the show, just copy the project file developed in the software-only d3 Designer to the d3 server and fully utilize the next level of networking, integration, and optimized playback performance.

“The d3 media server is a good example of One Stop Systems’ design, integration, expansion and test capabilities,” said Steve Cooper, CEO of One Stop Systems. “We first delivered the prototype systems and have been delivering production units since June. It has been a very successful deployment aided by d3’s exceptional professionalism. This new server is a first of its kind in the industry and we are very happy to play a pivotal part in its success.”

Luke Malcolm, d3 product manager for the new pro range, chimes in: “We decided to make the d3 pro range so we could offer a rock-solid solution in a fast-changing industry that would hold its value over time. One Stop Systems was with us all the way through as we designed the servers together - there were a lot of firsts in this process, so we’re very pleased with this collaboration.”

The d3 4x4pro platform is packed with industry grade input/output capabilities. With two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, you can meet the transfer needs of huge, high-resolution shows. USB 3.0 and Firewire 800 both provide high-speed connectivity to external devices. Audio is provided by professional audio cards. PCIe Expansion paves the way to further IO expansion. All this connectivity is provided on ruggedized connectors.
