Vantrix Helps Videotron [Canada] to Adapt Video to Apple's iPhone

Vantrix and Videotron, announced that they will "showcase enhanced capabilities for delivering multiscreen video services to subscribers .. Driven by the recent launch of their iPhone smartphones, Videotron needed to encode thousands of hours of existing video content adapted to the new devices and applications. The Vantrix Multiscreen VoD Transcoder, operating on the Kontron SYMKLOUD Media 2U platform powered by the Intel® Core™ i7 processor, anchored the solution".

Jean Mayrand [pictured], CTO, Vantrix said: “Videotron has been a longtime multiscreen video customer of ours and they proposed a challenge to us that we jumped at .. In addition to the new service delivery, we were able to offline process 22,000 hours of media required in just 15 hours using a cluster of 8 Kontron SYMKLOUD platforms. Using the Intel® Media SDK in the Iris™ Pro Graphics processor and Kontron’s high density packaging, our scalable architecture was able to accelerate the transcoding operation by more than 1400 times. This platform helped us to meet the tight deadlines for launching the new devices”,
