Simian Rack Systems



NOTE: Actual appearance may differ from the illustrative examples shown here. We can provide customized solutions to match your stations need (optional 20″ or 18.5″ rack depths for example, 28″ by default).

BSI can provide customized turnkey solutions based on 4U rack mount PCs, designed to provide more flexibility, scalability and customization than other systems.

These systems are built with an Intel® i5® processor, DDR4 memory, Serial ATA Hard Drives, DVD Writer, and dual Gigabit Network Connections.

With the rack-mount chassis’s sturdy construction and features that include high quality temperature controlled low SPL fans, this system provides a perfect solution for any demanding radio station or broadcast facility.

BSI’s rackmount systems are designed to deliver the best all-in-one solution and fulfill the requirements of a standard broadcast facility and are very carefully optimized to reflect this. This means that while the hardware supplied may support certain features, these may have been disabled or modified during system optimization in line with our policy of prioritizing multimedia performance and long term reliability.

Systems contain enough hard-drive storage for considerably more than 6,000+ songs in Linear PCM format (though we do not recommend using many more files than this), as well as a dedicated hard-drive for the Operating System to ensure maximum performance.
