New SharpStreamer™ Mini Add-on Acceleration Card for Small Video Acceleration and Transcoding Deployments
RAI, Amsterdam. [12 September, 2015] — At the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) today, Artesyn Embedded Technologies announced the SharpStreamer™ Mini add-on card, which brings the benefits of accelerated high density video transcoding and multiscreen delivery enjoyed by content owners, broadcasters and service provider networks to smaller single instance OTT appliance deployments, network DVR applications, video on demand hospitality servers, video surveillance security systems and streaming education servers.
With a focus on AVC encoding, decoding and transcoding, which is a typical requirement in these installations, the SharpStreamer Mini offers quick and scalable integration with widely-deployed 1U standard server architectures to meet the demands of system integrators, equipment and service providers who want to use existing low profile servers and cloud infrastructure to support new video processing platforms.
Featuring one or two 5th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors, based on the Broadwell microarchitecture, with Intel® HD Graphics 6000 the SharpStreamer Mini card offers a significant performance boost in a standard half-length PCI Express form factor for compatibility with a wide range of industry-standard 1U servers.
The SharpStreamer Mini is equipped with a software development kit comprised of the Intel® Media Server Studio with Intel® HD Graphics’ hardware acceleration, monitoring and processor subsystem operating system and management tools for easy integration with server host processing environments. It is also available with optional multiscreen video transcoding application software and is compatible with a wide range of Artesyn’s ISV ecosystem partner solutions.
