Avioon announces partnership with Artesyn Embedded Technologies to create joint hyper-scalable and high-density video transcoding solutions

New combination of industry-leading products offers flexible and high-density file-based or live transcoding with an unprecedented H.264, HD or 4K processing capacity within standard servers or rack units.
Wiesbaden, Germany(9/8/2017) -

Software manufacturer Avioon will unveil its partnership with Artesyn Embedded Technologies at the 2017 IBC trade show in Amsterdam, Netherlands.  The companies will demonstrate the combined FLICS and SharpStreamer/MaxCore products to customers and partners in booths 5.B06 and 5.C12 from September 15-19.

“The FLICS transcoding software, combined with the Artesyn cards and server platforms, represents a new generation of transcoding power and scalability,” says Tilo Skomudek, Avioon CEO, “We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Artesyn to bring affordable and flexible transcoding solutions with unprecedented compute-density to customers and partners at the 2017 IBC Expo.”

The combined solution targets video production and publishing companies who need to optimize costs and right-size transcoding capacity by dynamically maximizing the number of streams or channels within a given computing processing unit.

FLICS works seamlessly with Artesyn’s SharpStreamer 72xx series of high-density PCI Express cards to offer HW-based acceleration of HD and 4K video with dynamic transcoding service management.  Customers can choose deployment options such as using standalone cards as within their own choice of hardware, or combining the 72xx cards within Artesyn’s 3RU MaxCore platform, 1RU/2RU SharpStreamer servers or CG19-GPU sled for telecom open compute architectures.

The FLICS software is certified by Artesyn and can be integrated and extended into virtual or cloud-based swarms of transcoding services that allocate capacity dynamically based on demand, formats, priority and more.

“The sheer density of HEVC transcoding that is now possible with the combination of Artesyn’s hardware and Avioon’s FLICS software is unparalleled in the industry,” adds Daniel Leih, Product Marketing Manager, Artesyn, “We are hearing about one billion HEVC-enabled devices across the globe from a single manufacturer so the question for broadcasters, networks and content owners is, are you ready?”
