Tria+ | Multi-Channel Production Server

Today’s live production environments demand cost-effective playback of video, key and audio content. Tria+ is the ultimate production server that provides the flexible, feature-rich, multi-channel capability you need to deliver compelling live programming.

Channel Flexibility

Create your ideal configuration. Tria+ offers 4, 8, or 12 symmetrical video channels – meaning every channel is instantly switchable between record and play.

Simple File Management

Integrated media file import and export tools dramatically streamline file-based workflows. Files are automatically matched to production format on import and the export process features a variety of user-defined parameters.

File & Format Diversity

Compatible with the spectrum of resolutions and formats, including Ultra HD-4K, HD and SD. A wide variety of the most popular self-contained media files can be imported and exported with ease.

Single Clip Workflow

Tria+ “video+key+audio” (VKA) architecture unifies these three media elements into a single clip. This dramatically simplifies clip management, import/export, and live playout control.

Intuitive Operations

An uncluttered and intuitive display of transport controls and real-time monitoring for each video channel. Control software can also be operated from any Windows-based computer on the local network.

Content Sharing

Quickly and easily share media clips between any number of Tria+ production servers interconnected via Gigabit or 10-Gigabit Ethernet. No matter where a given clip is stored—any clip can be played back in real-time.

Unique Codec Features

Tria+ servers fitted with AVC-Intra and JPEG-2000 video hardware provide unique operational features that are great for a variety of production applications:

Software Transcoder Import – AVC-Intra & JPEG-2000
The Software Transcoder imports media files without the use of a video channel, allowing you to dedicate all your server’s channels to live recording and playout tasks.

Growing File Export – AVC-Intra
This powerful feature can be deployed while capturing one or more live video sources. It works by writing a continuously growing MXF media file for each live recording stream onto external network attached storage (NAS) – including one of the affordable Ross EVO Signature Series storage solutions. From there, edit systems capable of editing with growing source files can begin using these files, even while live capture is still underway. This streamlined live editing workflow save both time and money; and gets your finished productions to air faster than ever before!


Choosing a Tria+ Production Server begins with selecting the native recording & playout video codec:

AVC-Intra model: 720p & 1080i HD @100Mb/s | 1080p HD @200 Mb/s | UHD-4K @800Mb/s
DVCPRO-HD model: SD @50 Mb/s | HD @100Mb/s
JPEG-2000 model: SD & HD @15Mb/s to 200Mb/s

This determines the supported video formats of the system:

UHD 4K Video 2160p /50 /59.94
HD Video 1080p /23.98 /24
1080p /50 /59.94
1080i /50 /59.94
720p /50 /59.94
SD Video 625i /50
525i /59.94

After that, select your desired symmetrical channel count and storage time:

Storage Times AVC-Intra | JPEG-2000 | DVCPRO AVC-Intra
4-Channels 8-Channels 12-Channels
40 Hours
80 Hours
580 Hours
