Thomson Upgrades MediaFlexOS System

News Image
Thomson Video Networks has announced a new version of its MediaFlexOS video operating system, including support for virtual machines (VMs) and cloud-based video processing resources.

MediaFlexOS is the video operating system powering Thomson Video Networks' ViBE™ family of encoding, transcoding, and contribution solutions — including the ViBE VS7000 multi-screen and HEVC encoder and the all-new ViBE XT1000 high-density transcoder. MediaFlexOS provides a software layer that enables live transcoding, branding, and other A/V processing functions in the cloud and on virtualised platforms, in addition to physical, on-premises resources. The software suite optimises physical, virtual and cloud services through a load balancer that takes maximum advantage of all available resources.
"Previously, video operators had a choice between dedicated hardware solutions that offered the necessary computing performance but required time-consuming provisioning, or non-optimised virtual or cloud solutions with poor redundancy, underperforming compression, and complex management," said Christophe Delahousse, president, Thomson Video Networks. "This release of MediaFlexOS gives video operators the best of both worlds. All they need to do is take care of the service creation and characteristics. MediaFlexOS is able to use a combination of on-premises resources and, if necessary, a cloud infrastructure to meet the operation's requirements. In this manner, the operator can find the ideal balance of lowered operational costs and optimized, broadcast-grade performance."
At IBC2014, Thomson Video Networks will feature initial components of the Behind Every Screen strategy. In the second half of 2014, Thomson Video Networks will begin a phased release of the cloud-enabled version of MediaFlexOS.
