Bright Side of News reports Elemental Technologies has introduced the Elemental Server, a cGPU server which provides high efficiency video transcoding using NVIDIA GPUs.
This solution is ideal for broadcasters, studios, and online video platforms. This technology enables them to deliver multiple bitrates and multiple resolutions at the same time and support many different devices. Although, at the current time, Elemental cannot support anything above 1080P at 30 frames per second, only satisfying the needs of broadcast productions. The company is working with the usual suspects to enable even higher resolutions, as the TV production is getting ready to expand the currently offered resolutions in 2011 and 2013. Elemental Technologies reported that their first client is BrightCove, broadcast company responsible for delivering streaming video for companies like the Discovery Channel, A&E, Time Warner, Fox, and many more. The Elemental Server is expected in a low five figure range, meaning the company is gearing up to take on six-figure broadcast and transcoding boxes. nVidia will be happy and more importantly, the customers will really be happy with all the advancements Elemental Technologies are bringing to the broadcast market.
