Comprimato Brings Flexibility, Quality And Convenience To Remote Production

Comprimato is set to transform live broadcasting, and remote production in particular, with the introduction of the Twenty-One Encoder. This dedicated ST2110 appliance simplifies and streamlines with multiple inputs for all the common high quality formats, to encode for delivery to a production centre or the cloud.

In a compact 1U cabinet, the Twenty-One Encoder accepts 16 HD inputs in any format, including SMPTE ST2110, NDI, JPEG-XS, JPEG2000, HEVC, H.264 and MPEG-2. Using Comprimato’s encoding technology, signals are multiplexed for efficient SRT and RTMP delivery with pristine quality.

Making the unit even more valuable, the same appliance also provides transcoding between any format, so users can select the most appropriate capture and production formats and not worry about conversion. The Twenty-One Encoder ensures synchronisation between feeds so cameras remain aligned, and it offers multiple outputs, including direct encoding to adaptive bitrate (ABR) formats.

To provide the very high performance, the device includes NVIDIA GPUs for massively parallel video processing, and Mellanox ConnectX boards for low-latency, high-throughput network performance. Comprimato designed the hardware platform in the Twenty-One Encoder, based on COTS modules to provide the optimum hosting for its advanced signal processing, as well as flexibility and power.
