Main features 

The M|62 Bundle - All in!

The M|62 is a hardware and software bundle that we provide. It includes:
  • Six licenses of MovieRecorder and two licenses of OnTheAir Video Express (on a single dongle),
  • One SDI Video card from Deltacast card (DELTA-hd-elp-d 62) with 6 inputs and 2 outputs,
  • One Sonnet Echo Express SEL Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis,
  • One Black Thunderbolt cable.

You will just need to connect it in Thunderbolt and the dongle to your new Mac Pro and you are good to go. The only thing you'll need to buy is a Mac Pro, because, no the Mac Pro is not included for the price...

A small and silent expansion chassis.

Softron has a lot of experience working with Sonnet and their xMac mini Servers and xMac Pro Server solutions. These are amazing products that have been put into service by a number of our users who require rack-mountable solutions. The Sonnet Echo Express SEL is the only Thunderbolt 2 device that is suitable for Low-Profile cards, making it the smallest yet most powerful solution to accommodate the Low-Profile Deltacast card that we chose for the M|62. As you can see in the picture above, you will notice notice that this chassis is very small - just like the new MacPro! AND most importantly, it is QUIET!

With the M|62, you are able to record either:

  • 6 x HD (or SD)
  • 3 x 2K
  • 1 x 4K signals

And to playout either:

  • 2 x HD (or SD)
  • 1 x 2

System Requirements.

As usual, the system requirements will depend on the format and codec that you will be using, and we recommend that you run tests to confirm.

  • For 1080i and 720p, encoded in ProRes (Proxy) or ProRes a 6-core Mac Pro will be able to sustain the required CPU power to encode 6 streams and decode 2.
  • For 1080i and 720p, encoded in ProRes (HQ) or ProRes 4444 or DNxHD an 8-core Mac Pro will be able to sustain the required CPU power to encode 6 streams and decode 2.
  • You won't be able to encode 6 streams of HD in H.264, this is simply too much. With a 12-core Mac Pro, you will be able to record maximum 2 streams of HD in H264
