Traditional server hardware is not well suited to video processing, especially when multiple high-resolution channels require manipulation. Using hardware acceleration allows a server to do more of what it is good at, and significantly reduces power, cost and footprint of high-density media solutions. Advantech's ultra-low power video encoder, decoder and transcoder platforms enable real-time HEVC encoding at up to 20x less power consumption than a software-only solution helping OEMs successfully address the challenges of 4K/8K media processing in a cost-effective manner. Advantech video processing products can provide the acceleration required to efficiently scale video processing across a wide range of applications from UHD HEVC broadcast and contribution encoding to high-density OTT video transcoding or cloud media processing. They come with a user-space SDK package supported by Advantech software engineering team that features an API and includes an FFmpeg plug-in to streamline new product development and the integration into existing applications. Advantech's proven expertise in networking and computing solutions together with wide support for IP media interfaces and promotion of interoperable solutions through the AIMS alliance enables us to lead innovation in the IP transition of the media industry and get our customers ahead of the curve.
