production switchers from leading
provider of live production technology,

sure our live production equipment
supported this migration, so the
decision to deploy XT4K servers was
an easy one to make," said BNC GmbH

as well as redundancy and archiving,

CEO Enrico Ganassin. "At the same
time, the XT4K provides our customers
with more 1080p channels, giving
them the capacity to do more with less
because they can deploy just one XT4K
instead of two XT3s."
The XT4K allows users to deliver four
flexible I/O channels of uncompressed
UHD-4K and natively supports both SDI
and IP connectivity. Users can deploy
the servers in both HD configurations
