Fujitsu, Broadcast Int’l and Myricom Team Up for Cloud Transcoding
FOOTHILL RANCH and ARCADIA, CALIF.: Fujitsu
Frontech North America, Broadcast International and Myricom have announced a strategic
alliance to deliver integrated private cloud transcoding to the media and broadcast
The fully integrated solution combines Fujitsu’s Primergy servers and XG Series
10GbE switches, Myricom’s Myri-10G 10-gigabit Ethernet network adapter cards
with new VideoPump specialized video-streaming software, and Broadcast
International’s CodecSys multi-codec video compression technology that cuts
video bandwidth requirements.
The trio said Myricom’s VideoPump software is considered critical for the UDP
streaming of IPTV video, with typical throughput levels clocked at nearly 80Gbps
per server, enough to support 8,000 simultaneous streams of high-definition
video. VideoPump’s low CPU overhead (less than 10 percent of one CPU core)
means that users can achieve large-scale video delivery using fewer, less
Broadcast International’s CodecSys cuts bandwidth requirements by up to half
compared to traditional MPEG-2 encoding technologies.
