Elemental Announces Availability of Next-Generation Architecture for Video Processing

PORTLAND, Ore. --(Business Wire)--

Elemental Technologies, the leading supplier of video solutions for multiscreen content delivery, today announced support for next-generation GPU and CPUarchitectures with its award-winning software-based video processing solutions. The company has launched NVIDIA (News - Alert)® Tesla® GPU accelerator and Intel Sandy Bridge-based versions of its Elemental® Live and Elemental® Server products to double the performance of its previous generation solutions.

"Pay TV operators, content owners and broadcasters are seeking to expand platforms for next generation multiscreen video workflows that can support requirements such as ultra-high definition resolutions, HEVC and MPEG-DASH," said Sam Blackman, CEO and co-founder of Elemental. "By leveraging NVIDIA Kepler™-based Tesla GPUs, Elemental is harnessing the most powerful programmable architecture on the market today, offering customers unmatched video processing quality, flexibility and performance."

"The migration path Elemental offers has allowed us to significantly increase our video transport quality and efficiency as the market demand for multiscreen video continues t grow," said Dave Higgins, vice president Video Quality and Reliability for Comcast (News - Alert) Cable.


"Elemental pioneered the use of GPUs for high-quality video transcoding, and they continue to innovate by developing new platforms that fully harness the massively parallel processing power of Tesla accelerators," said Greg Estes, general manager of Media and Entertainment at NVIDIA. "The increased density and throughput available with these new Elemental products will continue to set the standard for enterprise video processing in the industry."

"Pay TV operators are aggressively investing in infrastructure that can scale from today's multiscreen applications to meet coming requirements including IP over cable, live multiscreen streaming of full channel lineups, and increases in the size of VOD catalogs," said Sam Rosen, practice director at ABI Research (News - Alert). "Traditional video processing capabilities are now being deployed in cloud architectures, giving operators the flexibility to reallocate resources as new applications come online. The Elemental software platform, coupled with next generation processors, provides a unique bridge to media deployment architectures of the future."

Along with powerful processor upgrades across its product line, Elemental has new form factors available from SuperMicro, Dell (News - Alert), and HP that offer more flexible workflow choices. Customers can opt for systems with a dual power supply, in a desktop form factor and with a quieter chassis. Additional options include ASI input, Pro-MPEG support, and cloud-based video processing.
