IDF: 25 Products Building The Intel Ecosystem, One Hardware Or Software Piece At A Time


Kontron and Vantrix: Cloud-based Real-time Video Platform

Kontron, an Eching, Germany-based developer of embedded computing platforms, paired up at IDF with Vantrix, a Montreal-based provider of software for managing large-scale networks, to demonstrate a new cloud-based video transcoding and delivery platform targeting workload performance and scalability for broadcasters, carriers, and providers of cloud and content delivery services.

The solution combined the Kontron SYMKLOUD Media platform with 18 modular Intel Core i7 processors with Vantrix's real-time video optimization and delivery applications.

Vantrix said the new platform can transcode up to 144 live 1080p videos using 750 Watts, or 5.2 Watts per video channel wit third-generation Intel Core i7 processors, and that a future version using fourth-generation Intel Core i7 Quad-Core processors is expected to nearly double that performance.
