ATLANTA, Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR), a global leader in storage, protection, transformation, and delivery of visual media assets, announced today that Zephyr Transcode, which Concurrent launched last year as an integral part of its content delivery network (CDN) solutions, is now deployed with customers in Asia, Europe and North America. The deployments already support thousands of on-demand assets being transcoded to multiple formats and bit-rates to support any place, any device content availability.
Zephyr Transcode supports multiple formats and quality levels including H.264 (MPEG-4) and H.265 (HEVC), strengthening Concurrent customers’ capability to provide high-quality standards-based streams to any device their end-users desire. Zephyr Transcode is software-based and capable of running in traditional Central Processing Units (CPU) as well as Graphics Processing Units (GPU).
“We are excited to take CDN-integrated transcoding to the next level,” said Clay McCreery, Chief Revenue Officer. “It is just the beginning of how we can seamlessly integrate transcoding into our industry leading Zephyr Origin and Aquari Storage platforms as well.”
The solution provides unsurpassed video quality by leveraging shared compute resources for processing of audio and video content. In addition, the solution enables service providers, broadcasters and content owners to support live and file workflows over common infrastructure, while supporting configurable quality levels and simplified licensing.
