Artesyn Enables Vantrix' Video Optimization; "Single Server Replaces 40"

Artesyn Embedded Technologies announced it is "demonstrating a new video transcoding and media processing platform developed in collaboration with Vantrix to enable broadcast and communications service providers to deliver significantly more multiscreen content to users at a fraction of the cost.
The integrated Artesyn SharpStreamer™ hardware [see "Artesyn Announced High-density Video Acceleration PCI Cards" - here] and Vantrix software solution enables significantly higher channel density at lower cost for virtualized ultra high-density media processing functions for multiscreen delivery, including encryption and adaptive bitrate (ABR) packaging.

For example, a single accelerated server could replace up to 40 non-accelerated servers for a video-on-demand (VoD) over-the-top (OTT) content transcoding application, or up to 24 servers for a linear real-time broadcast ABR application. These substantial capital expenditure savings are matched by significantly reduced operating expenditure thanks to power consumption that has been estimated at between six and 10 percent of that required to run the same applications on non-accelerated servers"
