The Supermicro Video Transcoding Server is built on the Supermicro Ultra series and features advanced encoding capability enabled by twelve NETINT Quadra T1 Video Processing Units. The Quadra T1 VPU is powered by the Codensity G5 ASIC video transcoder with built-in AI and ML computational blocks. Quadra T1 supports AV1, HEVC and H.264 video encoding at up to 8K resolution and with 10-bit HDR.
With the birth of the metaverse and interactive streaming video applications such as cloud gaming and video conferencing, streaming video platforms are facing operational pressure to improve both encoding performance and power efficiency while minimizing their environmental footprint.
The Supermicro Video Transcoding Server future proofs hyper-scale real-time streaming video platforms with higher levels of performance compared to CPU based software-encoding systems, while simultaneously reducing TCO by as much as 40x and carbon emissions 80x.
The Supermicro Video Transcoding Server enables a reduction in TCO for hyperscale cloud platforms and video service providers.
Using Codensity ASIC-powered video processing units, video services and platforms can reduce their TCO and server footprint by 40x while reducing carbon emissions 80x as compared to CPU-powered software video transcoders.
This increase in encoding density expands the number of channels that can be encoded without increasing the rack footprint.
Reduced power and HVAC costs mean a lower TCO and higher density can be achieved without sacrificing video quality or latency.
