Quadra Video Server

Ampere Edition

Finally, a server with monster performance and a tiny appetite

Industry leaders: NETINT, Ampere and Supermicro, united to consolidate and accelerate your transcoding process problem by enhancing core functionality and integrating multiple production related processes into this high-performance server.

“The Quadra Video Server – Ampere Edition was built in response to customers requesting a more powerful CPU to do more work on the same machine. This saves money and reduces the technical complexity of needing to spread a complicated video processing function across multiple servers while keeping streams synchronized.

By harnessing Ampere’s Cloud Native Processors and industry-leading core counts, and integrating our purpose-built VPUs, we enable broadcasters, video service providers, and hyper-scaled
video platforms to do more with less.”

Alex Liu, Co-founder & COO of NETINT

Quadra
Work Flow

Open-source suite of processing tools for simple integration

Many video processing and transcoding applications developers use FFmpeg and GStreamer, two open-source software libraries offering a vast suite of video processing functions. The Quadra video server includes highly efficient FFmpeg and GStreamer compatible SDKs, allowing operators to apply an FFmpeg or GStreamer patch to complete the integration.

The libavcodec patch on the host server functions between the Quadra NVMe interface and the FFmpeg and GStreamer software layers simplifying integration and enabling fast and efficient performance and capacity upgrades.
