NextComputing Portables Deliver Maximum Performance in the Field
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome NextComputing as a premier sponsor.
Based in Nashua, NH, NextComputing specializes in extreme-performance portables and small form-factor workstations. The company’s open-standards, modular systems are used throughout many industries for a range of professional applications including real-time 3D visualization, high-throughput data streaming, and high-end application demonstration.
As a manufacturer of powerful computing solutions for users in remote locations, NextComputing’s line of broadcast-quality portable workstations, short-depth rackmount servers, and compact tower systems are designed to take up minimal space while delivering maximum performance.
“We know from our relationships with broadcasters that there is a driving need to reduce cost while remaining at the forefront of technology,” explains NextComputing’s President and CTO, Bob Labadini. “’Time to innovation’ is critical to stay ahead of the competition, and this drives a need for systems to be open and adaptable to multiple uses. Systems must also continue to be smaller, lighter, and more powerful as technology advances.
“By joining the Sports Video Group, we hope to develop a greater network of relationships with sports broadcasters who share a common need for robust, reliable computing that can benefit from the types of unique products and services NextComputing offers,” he adds.
NextComputing’s platforms uniquely address critical issues of size, weight, and power-efficiency for truck designers, remote operations managers, and technology integrators. Whether productions need real-time graphics, live encoding and streaming, or remote media asset management, the company’s systems are flexible and capable of running demanding broadcast applications.
Recently, NextComputing announced an expansion to its line of high-density rack-mount computing products with the introduction of Nucleus RM. Based on NextComputing’s small form-factor Nucleus series tower workstations and servers, Nucleus RM brings the same compact server appliance computing to rack-based environments. The Nucleus RM provides a combination of fast processing, storage, and I/O, but in less space than traditional rack-mount servers.
