Tackle the broadcast and streaming density crunch – free webinar today3 December 2014
Register now for the free webinar today, which begins at 4pm GMT and is presented by Linsey Miller, Artesyn Embedded Technologies, and Rik Dunphy, Intel.
At IBC2014, many of the broadcast and streaming products on show running on Intel technology weren’t fulfilling their maximum potential density or meeting the need for lower cost.
Advances in Intel technology and the availability of off-the-shelf add-in acceleration cards means that now is the time for those applications to multiply density (by a factor of 6-8X) without changing the underlying Intel architecture.
Using two example applications, next-day TV OTT content delivery and real-time broadcast ABR transcoding, the webinar will illustrate dramatic CapEx savings, as applications can use only one server versus up to 24 to handle equivalent densities, while driving down OpEx thanks to lower power and cooling requirements.
Miller, director of marketing at Artesyn, and Dunphy, senior software architect at Intel’s Data Center Group, will also show how, through OpenStack and Artesyn’s SharpStreamer technology, applications can also be deployed virtually – taking advantage of cloud provisioning and management – so they are not constrained to bare metal hardware.
