Harmonic introduces Rhozet Carbon Coder 3.0
Harmonic has introduced Rhozet Carbon Coder 3.0, the latest version of its universal video transcoding solution.
The new version features distributed transcoding across multiple machines, new Adobe Flash and VC-1 format support, server failover for fault-tolerant performance and an automated quality assurance (QA) module.
Carbon Coder's new multi-machine transcoding capability tackles the increasing demands of video transcoding by allowing a single transcoding job to be distributed over multiple computers in a transcoding farm. This feature is especially useful for processor-intensive formats, such as Flash, VC-1 and MPEG-2.
Rhozet also has implemented fault tolerance and quality assurance features to increase reliability. Carbon Server's fault-tolerance feature allows multiple Carbon Servers to manage the same farm in a redundant configuration.
