VEGA-7000 High-Density Servers
Scale Your Media Applications More Efficiently
The VEGA 7000 is a family of highly configurable servers that combine best video and IT practices within an optimized density, power consumption, and functionality, off-the-shelf platform that has been designed to efficiently scale throughput of compute-intensive encoding, decoding and transcoding applications in live broadcast, OTT or cloud workflows. The density and open system architecture advantages of the VEGA 7000 servers bring greater scalability and agility to media applications from edge contribution to cloud distribution, significantly reducing time-to-market, in-house development efforts and total cost of ownership (TCO) of live 4K/8K video solutions. Configurations of the VEGA 7000 family range from multi-channel UHD HEVC broadcast encoders and decoders to cloud OTT transcoding servers for the data center supporting up to 32 x 4Kp60 live HEVC profiles per rack unit – the highest density available in the market.
The VEGA 7000 servers are application-ready platforms that can be customized with replaceable bezels and a programmable LCD control panel. They provide a RESTful API that facilitates its integration with other user functions and applications. The VEGA 7000 family integrates Advantech’s Media Flow Software framework which is a user-space tool that simplifies encoding and transcoding application development. It provides a friendly and web-based Graphic User Interface to easily manage and control video flows and a Linux or Windows compatible SDK package that includes an FFmpeg plug-in.
The VEGA-7010 is a highly configurable, 1U, short depth video server based on the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v6 Product Family that integrates on-chip graphics engine to improve performance of UHD HEVC developments. Its four PCI Express slots provide high flexibility to fit a wide range of video accelerators such as FPGA or GPU cards supporting up to 300W PCIe power in total. When integrating Advantech’s VEGA 3300 accelerators, the VEGA-7010 can perform multi-channel 4Kp60 HEVC 10-bit encoding, decoding or transcoding, including SDI and IP media capture. It supports dual redundant power supply units for high availability in a variety of edge media processing scenarios. The applicationready VEGA-7010 streamlines product development and shortens time-to-market providing equipment manufacturers with a comprehensive software package that supports Linux and Windows operating systems.
