Linux Media Arts announced the availability of the L-Server, a 64-bit Linux digital disk recording (DDR) system. The L-Server employs AMD dual Opteron 64-bit technology, dual DDR memory, 1TB of storage, an AJA HD capture/playback card and eight-channel embedded AES/EBU audio. It has Serial RS232/422 control ports with Sony protocol for external deck control. It is available in an LMA mini-tower or 3U LMA rackmount configuration. Its open architecture supports any plugin, or users can build their own. The L-Server SDK allows developers to build plugins, codecs and special effects that can be dropped onto the video track timeline. Users can operate the L-Server and/or remote tape deck from a control panel or from a browser window. L-Server can capture directly from all HD VTRs and various HD cameras. Graphics can be shared across platforms using the standard NFS/SMB filesystem.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
