Cloud providers often offer video encoding and transcoding services to their video streaming customers. These workloads are most often processed in software on virtualized compute instances. While software encoding maintains flexibility to reuse compute resources on other cloud workloads, this approach is also your most expensive option consuming significant compute resources, rack space, and power. And this situation will only get worse, as market trends towards higher video resolution, frame rates, and volumes will only increase future video processing requirements.
The Codensity™ T408 Video Transcoder processes large volumes of high-resolution H.264 AVC and H.265 HEVC video streams (up to 4Kp60 throughput). A T408 Video Transcoder will also reduce rack space, power, and most importantly - cost. If you also operate a CDN, compressing video to H.265 format before distribution through your long-haul core network can also save significant ongoing bandwidth OPEX, with exceptional ROI.
The small U.2 form factor with low power requirements also makes the Codensity T408 ideal for Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) platforms. Emerging edge applications requiring low latency video encoding include cloud gaming, Augmented Reality (AR), and Virtual Reality (VR).
