ADLINK First to Market With Dedicated Media Cloud Server Plus Built-in MediaManager Software for High Performance Transcoding

Apr 20, 2015

MCS-2040 is the first dedicated media server on the market with built-in media processing management software, offering 6x the performance of pure software transcoding solutions and reserving more than 80% of CPU capacity for customer applications.

MCS-2040 is the first dedicated media server on the market with built-in media processing management software, offering 6x the performance of pure software transcoding solutions and reserving more than 80% of CPU capacity for customer applications.

MCS-2040 targets video analytics, video conferencing and transcoding for CDNs with new application-ready intelligent platform.

ADLINK Technology, a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), today introduced the MCS-2040, the first dedicated media server on the market with built-in media processing management software, offering 6x the performance of pure software transcoding solutions and reserving more than 80% of CPU capacity for customer applications. Based on dual 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors or Intel® Xeon™ processor E3-1200 V3, the MCS-2040 Media Cloud Server targets video applications such as surveillance with video analytics, video conferencing used in remote education & healthcare environments, and IPTV content delivery networks (CDNs) as a transcoding server.

The media server market currently offers two distinct options: a general-purpose hardware solution that relies on software for functionality, and a dedicated media server with no added software included. The MCS-2040 offers the high performance and efficiency of a dedicated media server without dominating CPU load availability. Its built-in MediaManager software offers enriched features above those of the Intel® Media Software Development Kit (Media SDK) supported by, but not included with, other dedicated media server options. As an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) solution, the MCS-2040 helps further speed time-to-market for customers by mitigating technical risks and reducing development time through provided MediaManager software capabilities.

The MCS-2040 offers four compute nodes is a 2U 19” form factor. Each node offers two independent systems communicating via Gigabit Ethernet (GigE); dual 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors or Intel® Xeon™ processor E3-1200 V3; 4 DIMMS with up to 32GB DDR3 memory (16GB/system); quad GbE RJ45 (two/system); 4 hot-swappable 2.5” SATA drive bays; a PCI Express (PCIe) slot reserved for I/O expansion to integrate 3rd party SDI, FC, and Ethernet cards; 2x 1600W redundant power supplies; and MediaManager software to round out the application-ready intelligent platform (ARiP).

The current landscape includes high-cost, low-performance generic servers that rely purely on software to make them competitive as a media cloud server, or dedicated servers with no built-in software to enable faster development time for video applications,” explained Yong Luo, head of ADLINK's Embedded Computing Product Segment. “The MCS-2040 offers increased performance that mitigates the overall product cost by ~50% and enables upgrade to a new generation of CPU/GPU without changing a single line of source code.

ADLINK’s MediaManager expands on the functionality of Intel® Media SDK by providing additional modules to handle common media processing tasks not natively supported by the Intel Media SDK API, including mux/demux of media container files, RTP receiving and streaming, video composition, and audio processing.
