Media Servers SL NEO 6000 Series

Compliance Recording, Monitoring and Logging


The SL NEO 6000 series servers are designed for local or remote monitoring and recording of television and radio broadcasts (logging). The broadcast recording system based on the SL NEO 6000 series servers permits the constant recording of an unlimited number of TV channels and radio broadcasts. 

There are two recording modes: uninterrupted, according to the server’s internal schedule (for example, “Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 12 a.m.”) or according to a more detailed preset schedule. Recording parameters may be set for every channel individually. The server gives an opportunity to import broadcast playlists, making searching for materials easier.

Cyclical recording mode

The system operates in cyclical recording mode that allows the disk space to be used effectively. For each channel, a materials’ storage period is set (for example 90 days), at the end of which the media- and metadata are automatically deleted.

Built-in Software MultiViewer for Client Workstations 

The SL NEO 6000 series servers use encoding and low-speed IP-streaming technology for control of input signals in multi-view mode on a PC monitor with the option of full-screen viewing of a chosen channel with sound. 

Access to the material within seconds after recording starts

Archive materials become accessible for search and viewing in 1 second after the beginning of the recording. Servers SL NEO 6000 implement a real-time search of materials according to basic attributes (date, broadcast time, channel, playlist event, text commentary), besides, they provide frame-by-frame precision of viewing and navigation.


SL NEO 6000 series servers can both export selected materials or fragments of materials in the form of separate files and export to DVD.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Automation of recording of various types of UHD/HD/SD signals: SDI/YCRCB/CVBS, SDI Embedded/AES/Analog Audio, SPTS/MPTS in ASI/IP, MPEG-2/Н.264 for embedded recording schedule;
  • Automated audio signal recording (for radio broadcasts);
  • Recording with various resolution parameters (Full Res/Proxy);
  • Ability to superimpose the actual date and time of the recording on the image while recording;
  • Management of media data in server archives, with search functions;
  • Collective, real-time editing of selected fragments from proxy copies, export of files to DVDs or external drives, with the support of the majority of popular encoder/decoders
  • Multiscreen monitoring of signals being recorded;
  • Combined, collective user operations when viewing materials with limited access rights to system resources, management of recording channels via a common simple, convenient user interface;
  • Generation of reports on major events (recording, data management, user activity).
The types, number, and settings for server program modules and their interaction determine the functionality of servers from a given series.
