Elemental Technologies releases transcoding appliance
Elemental Technologies has released Elemental Server, a GPU-based transcoding appliance. The server's technology enables faster-than-real-time, simultaneous encoding of video files using GPUs. Elemental Server can replace multiple CPU-only solutions for a fraction of the price.
Elemental Server is designed to fit into existing workflows with crucial video-processing features including simultaneous processing of up to four 1080P or 24 SD video transcodes in real time.
The encoder supports most popular codecs including MPEG-2, VC-1 and H.264, as well as a wide variety of output containers including F4V, ASF, WMV, 3GP and MP4.
