UltraNEXUS-HD Blade

The UltraNEXUS-HD Blade™ takes a cue from the UltraNEXUS-HD X5 and UltraNEXUS-HD X2, offering H.264 recording with simultaneous playback and scaling to both HD and SD outputs, and puts it into an easily expandable chassis for multichannel applications. Manage up to 12 channels in a compact, four rack unit chassis facilitating the seamless implementation of multiple broadcast systems without sacrificing large amounts of rack space. Moreover, the UltraNEXUS-HD Blade requires considerably less energy in comparison to other multiple channel playback systems, easing power requirements and saving money.

Digital Video Messaging

UltraNEXUS-HD series video servers handle your video messaging needs without external hardware. Standard JPEG images can easily be created with the included browser-based Advanced Slide Editor or any third party graphics program to enhance your organization’s message. In addition, logos and attention-getting messages can be effortlessly incorporated as part of a normal playback schedule, or quickly created and activated as emergency messages. The on-screen program guide can be scheduled to appear at specific times as an individual slide or within the normal rotation of one or more slide shows. An easy-to-implement online program guide is also available.


For the utmost ease and convenience, use the included Virtual Channel playlists to automatically display slide shows, video clips, and external sources between programs. Save even more time by supplementing your generated content with the TOTAL INFO-HD™ dynamic video content service, which automatically displays graphics and text from a variety of user-specified categories, such as: weather, traffic, news, and more.


UltraNEXUS-HD Zone Templates and Advanced Twitter Integration

Engage viewers like never before with UltraNEXUS-HD Zone Templates! In addition to fullscreen playback, the UltraNEXUS-HD series supports additional customizable zones. Use lower third messaging to keep your audience informed and entertained. With a dynamic, squeeze back template, users can add messaging on the right side of the screen as well.

Broadcasting and Streaming


UltraNEXUS-HD series video servers are designed to fit into a wide variety of HD/SD video workflows. If HD video isn’t an option for your organization, the UltraNEXUS-HD Blade provides an industry-first enhanced SD mode that dramatically increases the quality of SD video. Using a number of different interpolation tools, users can tweak the output of their video and make their content look better than ever. Additionally, the UltraNEXUS-HD Blade even offers an IPTV streaming output for broadcasting existing digital video and graphic content over Ethernet!


Along with broadcasting, the UltraNEXUS-HD Blade has a built-in workflow for video-on-demand streaming that natively encodes high-quality digital media files for both television broadcasting and video-on-demand (VOD) streaming. Once files are recorded, it automatically transfers VOD files to VieBit®, the web hosting and video-on-demand web streaming service from LEIGHTRONIX.


UltraNEXUS-HD series video servers also easily accommodate live web streaming for viewers to watch your events online while they happen. Simply connect the IncodeX Vier®, or IncodeX Stream™ live streaming media encoders to an output on an UltraNEXUS-HD series video server. The encoder captures and delivers the stream to the VieBit live web streaming service, making the event immediately available to viewers with minimal impact on a local network.

UltraNEXUS-HD series video servers are versatile and full-featured. Contact a LEIGHTRONIX sales representative at (800) 243-5589 or sales@leightronix.com for more information or to schedule a web demo.
