About Our Servers
Say hello to our new flagship server.
VYV’s previous server architecture has been used across the world on permanent shows and tours alike. Known for its ruggedness and reliability, it has been a challenge to come up with a new product that would pack the same punch in a smaller package.

Design & Architecture
Sleek Form Factor
Occupying only a 2 RU space and managing from 8 (PHOTON) to 16 (XENON) HD outputs, our new servers will still deliver the content you need while having a much smaller footprint than their predecessors.
Standardized yet Configurable Solution
PHOTON, XENON and ALBION will from now on take advantage of the DELL EMC architecture. Moving to this new standardized design will greatly simplify maintenance and support operations. Even if our servers operate from a unified design, they will still feature customization options that will allow you to expand storage, change the quantity of video outputs or add media acquisition cards.
