2014 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show--Elemental Technologies, the leading supplier of software-defined video solutions for multiscreen content delivery, today announced that its video processing software is fully integrated into the Ericsson Virtualized Encoding solution. The integration ensures best-in-class video processing performance and picture quality while allowing the most agile use of platforms and technology improvements for TV Anywhere services.

Software-defined video (SDV) solutions from Elemental take an infrastructure-agnostic approach to implementing flexible, scalable and easily upgradable video processing workflows. They allow video providers to economically run software across an optimal combination of dedicated and virtualized resources in both private and public data centers. SDV products from Elemental can be used on multiple processing architectures and easily deployed on appliances, blade solutions, virtual machines, and in the cloud.
“By expanding Ericsson Virtualized Encoding to also support Elemental software encoding, we are enabling TV service providers to efficiently address the growing complexity of multiscreen TV service delivery within a single solution,” said Dr. Giles Wilson, Head of TV Compression for Ericsson. “As providers strive to address consumer demand for TV Anywhere, we are focused on helping them make the right choices with their multiscreen video processing deployments.”
Designed to remove the complexity of TV Anywhere video processing, Ericsson Virtualized Encoding is the industry’s first software solution for intelligent utilization of multiple encoding resources regardless of the platform. A completely task and service-oriented solution, it can allocate resources and simplify the process of selecting the right encoding method and platform based on the operator’s priorities for deployment speed, video quality and output. It eliminates complexity, enables more efficient resource utilization and bandwidth management and bridges the gap between broadcast and IT infrastructures, allowing deployment of enhanced TV services much more quickly.
“Elemental’s view of the future of video aligns well with Ericsson’s vision of the Networked Society where there will be 50 billion connected devices by 2020, 15 billion of which will be video enabled,” said Sam Blackman, CEO and co-founder for Elemental. “The integration of Elemental solutions into the Ericsson platform will help enable pay TV operators, content owners, broadcasters and sports programmers to transform their traditional TV businesses into multiscreen successes across the globe.”
Elemental will feature its innovative software-defined video platform at NAB 2014 April 7-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (South Upper Hall, Booth 2724). The company will showcase real-time 4K HEVC video processing as well as video streaming in turnkey, virtualized and cloud-based deployments.

At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...

A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general. Although few people are familiar with Microservers today, their impact will be felt very soon. This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

In case you haven’t heard, the new hotness in app architectures is serverless. Mainly restricted to cloud environments (Amazon Lambda, Google Cloud Functions, Microsoft Azure Functions) the general concept is that you don’t have to worry about anything but the small snippets of code (functions) you write to do something when something happens. That’s an event-driven model, by the way, that should be very familiar to anyone who has taken advantage of a programmable proxy to do app or API routing ...

In many organizations governance is still practiced by phase or stage gate peer review, and Agile projects are forced to accommodate, which leads to WaterScrumFall or worse. But governance criteria and policies are often very weak anyway, out of date or non-existent. Consequently governance is frequently a matter of opinion and experience, highly dependent upon the experience of individual reviewers. As we all know, a basic principle of Agile methods is delegation of responsibility, and ideally ...

As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...
