RGB Networks introduces Application Media Server

Claims to support file-based on-demand transcoding (ODT), live-stream processing and file-to-file transcoding

By CBR Staff Writer

RGB Networks, a provider of network video processing, has expanded its product offerings with the introduction of Application Media Server (AMS), which is a multi-purpose transcoding server based on the V6 product from RGB’s recently acquired Ripcode.

The AMS is a transcoding and transport packaging appliance ideal for the delivery of live and on-demand programming to mobile devices.

The company said that the new AMS supports file-based on-demand transcoding (ODT), live-stream processing and file-to-file transcoding, which are important in processing programs into the codecs required for mobile, Internet and IPTV video.

The AMS also supports integrated adaptive streaming and progressive download, smart phone delivery protocols, which are important for delivering programming to mobile devices.

The compact, one rack unit form factor of the AMS makes it easy to deploy anywhere within a service provider’s network, and it can also be deployed as a standalone server or can be clustered for high availability and load balancing, scaling to thousands of concurrent transcodes, RGB Networks said.

RGB Networks product marketing vice president Ramin Farassat said that the smart phones and other mobile devices present an immense challenge for operators delivering video, largely because of the vast number of codecs and protocols supported across devices.
