Artesyn Embedded Technologies

Description :

The PCIE-8120 media processing accelerator enables high density voice and video processing to be integrated into a rack mounted server or other network appliances that feature standard PCI Express slots. The Artesyn Embedded Technologies PCIE-8120 is a PCI Express (PCIe) media processing acceleration engine for use in standard server architectures or other appliances that feature full length PCIe slots. Voice and video streaming is becoming more pervasive as customer demand for media consumption continues to rise, and the diversity of media sources, network conditions and individual consumption devices proliferate. Using traditional Intel® Xeon® server architectures, power and efficiency soon become a limitation when scaling to high channel density media stream transcoding. By employing highly efficient Digital Signal Processors (DSP) to provide direct offload of the host CPU, the new PCIE-8120 acceleration engine can take the place of additional servers when adding high density voice and video processing to an application. Network equipment providers can either add or substantially increase the voice channel or video processing density within existing systems, so reducing overall power and space demands for their equipment as it scales to higher throughput. PCIE-8120 brings high density DSPs with embedded voice and video firmware from Octasic together with Artesyn Embedded Technologies' strong embedded system heritage and thermal design skill, resulting in an industry-leading media processing density for the next generation of voice and video processing systems.
