All Smart VPU Products

Problem: Transcoding has been inefficient and bulky

Historically, transcoding functions have been siloed in standalone servers with ABR packaging and other production tasks performed elsewhere.
This schema inflates both CAPEX and OPEX.

And it’s particularly painful for data centers where space and power are at a premium.

Solution: Consolidate and accelerate transcoding with ASICs

We built Smart VPUs on ASIC technology to replace software in CPUs. This consolidated resources, reduced power requirements and carbon footprint by 90%, saving companies millions annually.
VPUs are smart and AI boosted to increase transcoding throughput and productivity 10X. On-chip processing accelerates AI functions freeing the CPU to focus on other tasks.

VPUs can process more video streams with less resources, so fewer computers are required to perform the same amount of processing. Even archive content occupies 80% less server space.
