Vantrix Announces Support for HP Moonshot at IBC 2014

Highlights Software-Defined Vantrix Media Platform Enabling Virtualized Video Processing for Multiscreen Delivery

MONTREAL, QC -- (Marketwired) -- 09/08/14 -- Vantrix, a global provider of media optimization and delivery solutions to service and content providers, today announced support for its software-defined Vantrix Media Platform (VMP) on HP Moonshot, enabling live and on-demand video processing for multiscreen experiences. Vantrix will highlight the support at the International Broadcast Conference (IBC) in Amsterdam September 12-16, 2014.

VMP is a software-defined video-processing, optimization, caching and analytics platform, available as a turnkey appliance for deployment on-premises or in the cloud. Built on OpenStack for virtualization, it offers a modular, pluggable and extensible architecture for video transcoding and optimizing media experiences via adaptive bitrate streaming for delivery to TVs, PCs and mobile devices.

"The Vantrix Media Platform running together with HP Moonshot achieves industry-leading performance for live and VoD transcoding, which is critical as the industry moves to 4K/UHD," said Jean Mayrand, president of Vantrix Corporation. "The integration of our open modular, pluggable media workflow solution and our virtualized graphics processing, together with high-density servers from HP, brings a new dimension of scalability to video processing."

"Operators and broadcasters are reaching a point where the space, power and cost demands of traditional technology are no longer sustainable," said Susan Blocher, vice president of Moonshot marketing and business development at HP. "HP Moonshot combined with the Vantrix Media Platform will accelerate innovation while delivering breakthrough efficiency and scale to video transcoding and multiscreen delivery with lower costs."

Using accelerated virtualized graphics processing, VMP running on HP Moonshot can deliver up to 450 simultaneous, real-time VoD transcodes or live feeds. With support for HP Moonshot's high-density 4.3RU platform, content owners and service providers will be able to reduce operational costs and lower power and space requirements in a highly scalable appliance using 45 individually serviceable hotplug cartridges.

VMP is installed as a virtual machine and operates on OpenStack, enabling flexibility and scalability. A single server can run concurrent applications -- such as Live and VoD transcoding, DRM encryption, file packaging and streaming -- with selectable resource assignments for different uses. In addition, the system easily scales across multiple servers in a cluster that shares virtual resources on all physical nodes without additional management software required.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
