Advantech VEGA Video Platforms and PCIe Adapters are designed to boost video infrastructure performance from acquisition to distribution at the lowest power budget while fully complying with the media industry needs. By providing access to the latest UHD video processing and Video-over-IP technologies on commercial-off-the-shelf IT-based platforms we accelerate the deployment of next-generation, open and more efficient video solutions with the best time to market. Advantech’s proven expertise in networking and computing enables us to lead innovation in the IP transition of the industry and get our customers ahead of the curve.
Here are the principal issues confronting the industry and how we can help.
The Move to IP
One of the major disruptors in the industry is the migration to IP to improve flexibility, reduce equipment costs, and allow more use of commercial computing and networking capability. Advantech combines knowledge from core networking and computing product lines with video-specific SDI to IP bridging solutions such as the Sony IP Live Production System to enable cost-effective IP-based solutions in video workflows.

UHD & HEVC
HEVC is now becoming established, offering substantial bit rate reductions and quality improvements over existing AVC / H.264 implementations, but processing power is still a problem, particularly for UltraHD. Advantech provides a range of low power PCIe HEVC acceleration cards, modules and solutions to upgrade video codec capacity, and increase the performance necessary to build HEVC-capable solutions.

The Video Cloud
As the need for video ingest, processing, storage and distribution skyrockets, many are considering the use of IP cloud technology, but some aspects of video processing are less than optimal in a generic cloud environment. Advantech application-ready video servers are highly configurable video platforms designed to efficiently scale performance of high-density encoding and transcoding applications in a hybrid video cloud infrastructure.
