MediaKind has debuted a next-generation media contribution encoder based on cloud-ready software, coupled with hardware acceleration.
The CE1 can be combined with MediaKind’s multi-codec and multi-service professional decoder, the RX1, to create an end-to-end media contribution workflow.
MediaKind says the enhanced solution provides an immediate response to anticipated changes in professional media contribution, enabling broadcasters, operators, and service providers to transition to all-IP and the cloud, integrate existing and future codecs & standards, and embrace new flexible business models.
Raul Aldrey, Chief Product Officer, MediaKind, said: “The launch of our flexible, software-based CE1 encoding platform provides secure, high-quality professional content contribution. In conjunction with MediaKind’s RX1 platform, CE1 delivers an industry-beating, highly resilient, cloud-ready, secure video contribution workflow, which enables the delivery of next-generation media experiences today and in the future. All broadcasters and content owners can invest with confidence, safe in the knowledge they will always remain current in a world of shifting media contribution technologies and infrastructure.”
The CE1 delivers low latency, HEVC, or MPEG-4 AVC encoding of HD and UHD video content for premium live events.
