Advantech has just announced a strategic partnership with Socionext to provide high density and efficient live hardware transcoding solutions for the data centre.
By using Socionext Media Cloud technology on new Advantech VEGA 7000 Series servers accelerated by the VEGA-3318 transcoding card, cloud service providers and equipment manufacturers will be able to deliver up to 32 4Kp60 live HEVC profiles per rack unit.
Brian Carr, product strategist and marketing director for video solutions at Advantech, said: “We are taking care of the transition to HEVC. With Apple’s announcements and Window’s announcements on HEVC, HEVC will be everywhere.”
The VEGA-3318 accelerator was shortlisted for the IABM Design & Innovation Awards 2017 in the Playout & Delivery Systems category.
