Artesyn will virtualise multiple ISV functions for broadcast & OTT streaming at NAB

April 14, 2015

At the NAB Show, Artesyn Embedded Technologies will demonstrate its range of SharpStreamer video acceleration platforms for broadcast and OTT video streaming with solutions from multiple independent software vendors (ISVs), many capable of deployment as virtual network functions (VNFs). Artesyn’s SharpStreamer platform accelerates video processing for service providers and equipment providers in the broadcast, OTT, MSO, ISP, CDN and cloud service provider market. Within those markets, there are multiple applications that can benefit from increased density for video streaming and transcoding. At NAB, Artesyn will demonstrate compatibility with software applications from Elecard, MainConcept, Noisypeak, FromTo, Vanguard Video, Vantrix, and Wowza Media Systems.

The SharpStreamer ISV Ecosystem provides members access to testing and compatibility resources with SharpStreamer solutions. SharpStreamer ISV Ecosystem members can benchmark applications and participate in ongoing innovation and development with Artesyn to achieve maximum density/RU for specific applications, so customers have the assurance of a proven solution.
“Our NAB demonstrations with multiple ISVs show how Artesyn can help equipment providers start to think like software companies by moving their solutions to agile virtual network functions for broadcast and OTT video transcoding,” said Linsey Miller, director of marketing for server acceleration solutions, Artesyn Embedded Technologies. “NAB is a great opportunity for equipment providers to learn how to reduce their infrastructure cost and offer competitive density for their broadcast and streaming solutions using our SharpStreamer-accelerated PCIE add-in cards, 1U, 2U, or 3U NEBS servers.”
NAB Show exhibits will be open from April 13th to 16th in Las Vegas, NV. Artesyn demonstrations will be in a dedicated meeting room (SU11626MR) and on display in the Intel booth (SU621).
