ViBox Servers 
Ultra Flexible Choices

Choosing the right ViBox Server is extremely important when putting together your total ViBox system. After you’ve decided which application layer(s) you need, you should ask yourself one question.

How much power and flexibility do I need for my productions today, and in the future?

If you are planning to run one application layer at a time and you need affordable portability…the V Mini Server might be your best choice.

If your productions need a single-user All-In-One system one day, and then a multi-user workflow with A-I-O on one touch-screen and SloMo running on 2 other touch-screens, you should be looking at the V16/8 Server.

And if you need the maximum power and flexibility for your UHD productions, we have the powerful line of ViBox UHD servers for the highest quality for cost-conscious budgets.

Other questions you may want to ask are…where do you want your production teams to be? Do you want your people at the venue, back at the production facility or across town?  Or at all of those locations?  The ViBox architecture is natively designed for your “at home” production needs.  The ViBox solution allows the operators to seamlessly operate applications remotely while the ViBox server interface is located with your cameras at the game or at your production center.

Even though Simplylive is a software company, we know the importance of extremely reliable hardware in our systems.  When we choose the component pieces that make up a ViBox Server, we look for a careful balance between hardware power, reliability and cost.

Then we test it.  A lot.  We move the gear around, we bang on it, and we demand performance.  We put our components in real world conditions to ensure that a system is going to work for you when you need it most.

​But like we said, we are a software company.  No matter the server, our applications work the same, whether you are on a V Mini or V12 UHD Server. The applications maintain their simplicity and flexibility as technology migrates to an IP & cloud infrastructure.  When it’s time for you to migrate your Simplylive system to something different, you’re not going to need to re-learn the software. You are already up to speed and ready to go.
