U.2 plug in module. Easy to scale up encoding capacity compared to software or other hard based encoding technologies. The Codensity series' U.2 plug in for factor enables it to be plugged into any NVME server.
The Codensity series can transcode a H.265 and H.264 4KP60 stream or up to 8x 1080p30 streams simultaneously. An NVME server populated with 10x Codensity encoders could have up to 10x the encoding capacity of a server with software based encoding. This enables data center operators to easily upgrade encoding capacity within their existing Edge server infrastructure.
I/O YUV raw video, compatible with 3rd party plug in
Codensity series can output raw video to host memory, for 3rd party applications to process. For example, IBM Watson training or inference, video analytics, video enhancements, server side Ad insertion, watermark etc. YUV videos can be re-encoded by Codensity series to high efficient H.264 or H.265.
Interoperable with common open source software tools
The Codensity series is compatible with FFmpeg, a common open source software tool for managing media. This interoperability ensures simple and fast integration into existing control and management system.
