DVS Hydra Systems

DVS Hydra Systems are multi-channel, high performance systems designed to handle interactive playback on up to twenty four, 4K video outputs.

Utilizing AMD's FirePro range of high performance professional graphics cards, twenty four outputs can be delivered with a massive 64GB of graphics memory. An additional Sync module allows all outputs to be frame-locked together, giving clear crisp images across multiple screens and GPU's.

These systems use two Xeon processors with 16/32/64GB of DDR3 Memory allowing it to handle massive levels of multi-tasking for interactive projects.

It has eight 3.5 inch Hard drive bays, connected to a dedicated hardware raid card allowing for rapid read/write speeds, large storage capacities as well as redundancy for the system and its content. With raided solid state drives we are able to deliver insane IOPS and incredible read and write performance.

This system has a redundant 1400watt PSU to prevent the system turning off due to a power failure. This is a great asset in critical systems that can not be offline unexpectedly.

The large chassis is still only 4U and can be easily converted into a rack-mount system.


- Hydra 6 - Six Outputs and 16GB of Graphics Memory
- Hydra 12 - Twelve Outputs and 32GB of Graphics Memory
- Hydra 18 - Eighteen Outputs and 48GB of Graphics Memory
- Hydra 24 - Twenty Four Outputs and 64GB of Graphics Memory
