Portland, Ore. – August 28, 2014 – Elemental Technologies, the leading supplier of software-defined video solutions for multiscreen content delivery, today announced plans to showcase its full suite of video processing capabilities at the annual IBC exhibition in Amsterdam, 12-16 September.

Elemental technology and product demonstrations at IBC will focus on the flexibility available with software-based solutions for multiscreen video processing and delivery.
Elemental can be found in Hall 4 on stand 4.B75 at the RAI Conference Centre. Show activities and highlights include:
- Cloud demonstrations featuring live linear encoding, non-linear TV services, live-to-VOD applications and cloud bursting scenarios, where dedicated appliances are paired with elastic cloud-based resources to automatically absorb peaks in video processing.
- A variety of live and file-based 4K and HEVC streaming applications, including encoding at 50 and 60 frames per second, video delivery in the MPEG-DASH format and interoperability with HEVC set-top boxes and playback devices.
- Time-shifted TV services that help content owners and distributors repurpose live video content with just-in-time packaging. Capabilities include support for on-demand catch-up TV, start-over TV, pause TV, and nPVR.
- High availability video solutions including seamless input failover. Redundancy for inputs, individual encoding and management nodes, and output redundancy will be shown in appliance, virtual and cloud-based deployments.
