  • High Quality H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC transcoding
  • Automatic resource allocation with centralized management
  • Flexible redundancy schemes
  • MPEG TS, HLS and SRT output
  • Pure CPU solution running on COTS hardware
  • Different CPUs and server configurations supported in same cluster
  • GOP alignment between servers for optimal hardware usage
With high performance H.264 and H.265 encoders as core components, services can be transcoded into multiple profiles up to UHD with HDR. Encoding quality levels can be chosen to achieve desired quality vs. speed, making it possible to target a large number of different requirements.

Live transcoded services can be streamed out as key-frame aligned transport streams straight into an Appear Adaptive Bitrate Server or any existing packager and origin server. Alternatively, HLS segments and playlists can be generated directly, ready to be fed into existing CDN infrastructure. For VOD the easily configurable architecture and RESTful API allows for integration into any workflow.
