Coyote Playback Servers

Powerful Playback, Simplified

Coyote Playback Servers come in two models; the Coyote Q3G and the Coyote S12G.

They both feature four 3G SDI outputs, configured as independent, spanned, synced, or UHD. The S12G model also has the ability to be configured for a 12G SDI output.

“The best 4k playback array on the market. A one of a kind player that is truly easy to use.”
