RGB Networks has expanded its product offerings with the introduction of its Application Media Server (AMS), a multi-purpose transcoding server based on the V6 product from Ripcode, which was recently acquired by RGB.??
The AMS is a transcoding and transport packaging appliance for the delivery of live and on-demand programming to mobile devices. It supports file-based on-demand transcoding (ODT), live-stream processing and file-to-file transcoding, which are key to processing programs into the codecs required for mobile, Internet and IPTV video. Complementing its comprehensive transcoding capabilities, the AMS supports integrated adaptive streaming and progressive download, and leading smart phone delivery protocols. The compact, one rack unit form factor of the AMS makes it easy to deploy anywhere within a service provider’s network.
The AMS can be deployed as a standalone server or can be clustered for high availability and load balancing, scaling to thousands of concurrent transcodes. The AMS can also work in conjunction with RGB’s three-screen live streaming delivery platform, the Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMGTM).
