MediaKind has launched the CE1, which it claims is heralding a new era for professional contribution video processing.
The CE1 is a next-generation media contribution encoder based on cloud-ready software, coupled with hardware acceleration. It enables exceptional time-to-market for new video offerings while facilitating highly immersive and compelling experiences.
Combined with MediaKind’s multi-codec and multi-service professional decoder, the RX1, the CE1 enables an end-to-end media contribution workflow that is more resilient and future-ready than existing professional media contribution processing and delivery solutions.
The enhanced solution provides an immediate response to anticipated changes in professional media contribution, thus enabling broadcasters, operators and service providers to transition to all-IP and the cloud, integrate existing and future codecs and standards, as well as embrace new flexible business models.
The CE1 is available as a cloud-native deployment model and can integrate with public cloud providers to enable broadcast-quality contribution to the cloud. CE1 software is also available within a hardware platform, giving broadcasters the option to run their services on-premise.
Raul Aldrey, Chief Product Officer, MediaKind, said: “The launch of our flexible, software-based CE1 encoding platform provides secure, high-quality professional content contribution. In conjunction with MediaKind’s RX1 platform, CE1 delivers a resilient, cloud-ready, secure video contribution workflow, which enables the delivery of next-generation media.”
The CE1 delivers low latency, HEVC, or MPEG-4 AVC encoding of HD and UHD video content for premium live events. A flexible and robust product, the CE1 provides a platform to support high-quality, 4:2:2 10-bit content contribution into the cloud.
