ISILON, ATEME Extend Partnership
ISILON and ATEME have extended their partnership to support high performance content processing for video delivery to multiple screens. The announcement follows nearly two years of joint deployments for the world’s largest Video On Demand services in Americas, Europe and Asia.
According to the two companies, By combining ISILON IQ Series scale out NAS storage and ATEME’s TITAN transcoding platform, service operators benefit from an increased throughput. The TITAN video processing speed is enhanced by fast storage, both for source files access and to write the processed content. Meanwhile the storage capacity expressed in number of titles is expanded by the high compression efficiency of TITAN.
The partnership simplifies the operational challenges of multi-screen transcoding workflows. Installed in a matter of hours, the solution scales out linearly with the expansion of the content catalogue, the migration to HD, or as new output formats are added to support more viewing devices. Transcoding blades or storage capacity can be added in minutes with no re-design and no downtime necessary.
The combination of ISILON IQ NAS Storage and the ATEME TITAN Transcoder delivers content for more than 40 million pay TV subscribers worldwide. The extended partnership will further simplify access to the solution for many more service operators as they move from tape to file based workflows or enhance their Video On Demand offerings.
