Experience the Benefits

High Performance

Deliver content via Apple HLS, Adobe Primetime (HDS and RTMP), Microsoft Smooth Streaming, MPEG-DASH or transport streams. Alternatively, create mezzanine deliverables for wrapping with a separate packager such as Elemental Delta to reduce network bandwidth.

Versatile Deployment

Control the Linux-based software through an intuitive web interface or REST/XML APIs for quick and simple integration in a turnkey, cloud-based or virtualized deployment. Unified control and management with Elemental Conductor reduces setup time, simplifies maintenance tasks and allows for centralized upgrades of multiple deployments.

Software-Defined Architecture

Address today’s opportunities while laying the foundation for future video requirements. A highly upgradable video platform provides adherence to regulations such as the CALM Act and rules for IP closed captioning, a seamless transition to new standards such as HEVC and Ultra HD, and ongoing improvements to features, functionality and quality with each software release.

Seamless Cloud Integration

Expand video processing as needed to flex with variable demand. Integration with Elemental Cloud replicates the profiles, capabilities and formats used on premise so that video outputs are identical regardless of where they are processed.
