Comprimato Launches Live Transcoder

Comprimato introduces the Live transcoder capable of processing 70 full HD signals in a single, third-party standard 1RU server.

The software runs on any standard x64 server device with GPUs, or it can be virtualised in a data centre or the cloud. 

“Systems architects today are faced with many points where multiple signals need to be transported, while retaining the highest possible quality. Carrying each individually, whether as SDI or as a standalone IP stream, is uneconomic in hardware and cabling. The Comprimato Live transcoder addresses this issue,” says Jirˇí Matela, founder and CEO.

“Its architecture means that the Comprimato Live transcoder is completely scalable, ready for new formats like 4k, HDR or 120FPS. Codecs supported include JPEG2000 for contribution and distribution, as well as H.264, MPEG-2 and H.265 for distribution, at all bitrates to suit the application. All of this is achieved with a guaranteed end-to-end latency of no more than 400 ms.

“Applications range from creating and delivering all the OTT deliverables at the point of origination to carrying multiple camera signals to a video referee,” Matela added. “Once system designers start to use the Live transcoder, they will quickly identify many, many places where it solves an otherwise challenging issue.”
