Telestream rolls out fast transcoder for OTT delivery to multiple screens

LAS VEGAS--Despite being acquired in December by Thoma Bravo, video encoding specialist Telestream has kept its innovation DNA intact, Monday announcing it was bringing a new tool to the increasingly hot over-the-top delivery market.

Telestream said its new Vantage Transcode HE Server for transcoding and packaging for multiscreen delivery uses new Telestream LightSpeed technology to deliver high quality images quickly. LightSpeed is architected for acceleration of video processing and H.264 encoding on parallel GPUs, including AMD and NVidia, and multicore CPUs, including AMD and Intel.

The new server streamlines the process of source file decoding, video processing, parallelized H.264 encoding, packaging, encryption, quality control and delivery, and it addresses the unique requirements of adaptive bitrate workflows.

"Our customers have been asking for accelerated transcoding as part of their integrated workflow," said Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream. "We are pleased to offer a product which not only provides exceptional transcoding speed but also a complete workflow." 

The product provides decoding support for a range of input file formats and accelerates H.264 encoding to Apple Adaptive Streaming, Adobe Dynamic Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming and MPEG-DASH.
