NX3601HDI
Media Platform with Integrated Storage
Features
The NEXIO AMP™ NX3601HDI media platform
with integrated storage is much more than a
robust HD/SD transmission server — it
represents an entirely new approach to
managing digital content. From ingest to
transmission, the NX3601HDI delivers
exceptional reliability, flexible media I/O and
complete format transparency.
The NX3601HDI supports up to six channels of
SD I/O or three channels of HD or mixed
HD/SD I/O. Six internal, hot-swappable 750 GB
SATA-2 storage drives, agile software-based
codecs and cutting-edge IT connectivity come
standard. The system is fully software
configurable and provides real-time I/O and
network interfaces.
External device support is provided with USB
2.0 and FireWire® ports for file import and
export, and a 5.25” drive bay accepts
supported third-party devices, such as a
Panasonic® P2 deck. Ethernet and FTP
connectivity support network devices such as
shared folders and near-line storage systems.
As a member of the NEXIO™ server family, the
NX3601HDI runs Harris’ patented and Emmy®
Award-winning RAIDsoft™ software RAID
management system, which allows all
channels and network ports to simultaneously
access content without restriction. The
intelligent RAIDsoft™ system keeps cached
copies of the File Allocation Tables (FAT) in
RAM and on disk, adding exceptional system
resiliency.
The NX3601HDI can be upgraded to the
NEXIO AMP™ NX3601HDX media platform
and attached to a NEXIO™ storage area
network (SAN), enabling a shared storage
system with more than 100 channels.

®
High-Performance Technology
NXOS also includes two versatile NEXIO™ features: MediaBase™ and
Transfer Manager.
Processors
Two dual-core, 64-bit AMD OpteronTM processors provide real-time,
high-bit-rate encoding and decoding, and enable the NX3601HDI server
to ingest and play out up to six channels simultaneously.
■
As the NEXIO™ content management system, MediaBase™ presents the
NX3601HDI clip list with real-time updates when changes are made to
storage.
■
Transfer Manager enables server-to-server and server-to-drive
transfers to and from the NX3601HDI server, including support for
USB and FireWire® devices, and networked and local drives.
MediaCore™ Engine
MediaCore™ is a high-performance, 64-bit software engine that
controls all low-level NEXIO AMP™ functionality. It’s a multistream
module that manages real-time transactions and system status updates,
as well as RAIDsoft™, Harris’ software RAID and disk storage
management system. MediaCore™ employs task-specific, multicore
CPU/GPU/FPGA processing to effortlessly handle all baseband video and
file I/O. The module can be controlled via external or internal interfaces.
Standard Applications
NXOS
The standard user interface for the NEXIO AMP™ mainframe is NXOS.
This intuitive operating system allows the user to control ingest and
playout on all channels — including off-speed play, trimming and subclip creation.
NXOS Standard Interface
NEXIO™ FTP Server
The NEXIO™ FTP Server application enables the movement of material
from server domain to server domain, and import and export of material
outside of the NEXIO™ server environment via Ethernet.
NEXIO™ PlayList
NEXIO™ PlayList is an event-sequencing application that can be used for
play-to-air operations such as commercial insertion, time-of-day events,
moving backgrounds and more.

applications when the two elements exist as separate clips.
Performance Enhancement
Add any of the following applications to boost the performance of your
NX3601HDI media platform:
NEXIO™ Navigator
Identify potential problems before they impact your on-air product with
NEXIO™ Navigator, an SNMP-based application that supports remote
monitoring and diagnostics of NEXIO™ servers and networkattached devices.
NEXIO™ Remote
Extend control of server channels using NEXIO™ Remote, an application
that provides control of up to six NEXIO AMP™ channels over a standard
LAN connection.
NEXIO™ Delay
Use NEXIO™ Delay to apply a delay to your air channel for safety in liveto-air transmissions.
