Elemental Technologies has announced version 2.0 of its video processing software. It offers unified support for multiple codecs, delivery standards and content protection technologies.
“With our most recent release, Elemental offers a flexible software architecture appropriate for pay TV operators, content programmers, studio and post-production houses, sports rights-holders and more,” said Keith Wymbs, VP marketing at Elemental. “Paired with the performance and throughput capabilities of our live and file-based video processing solutions, customers reap the rewards of our software-based approach to large-scale video deployments.”
Several dozen customers, such as Columbus Communications and Comcast, have already moved to the the next-generation Elemental Live and Server products. More than 100 customers have also deployed the 2.0+ software.
The new release brings together a host of features for multiscreen video delivery including increased performance across a smaller footprint. In addition to support for common video streaming protocols such as Adobe RTMP and HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), Microsoft Smooth Streaming and Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), Elemental software supports newly emerging technologies including MPEG-DASH, Ultraviolet and 4K Ultra HD.
Separately, Elemental has announced support for next-generation GPU and CPUarchitectures through the NVIDIA Tesla GPU accelerator and Intel Sandy Bridge-based versions of its Elemental Live and Elemental Server products to double the performance of its previous generation solutions.
