Grab Networks Announce Accelerated H.264 Transcoding With Anystream Agility 2G

Following the announcement of the European debut of Anystream Agility 2G, Grab Networks, a leading provider of automated video capture, indexing and multi-platform video content syndication has confirmed that anystream Agility 2G processing now offers grid encoding of H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 content across multiple computers and multiple cores.
At IBC 2009 the company will feature this new capability which dramatically reduces the time required to convert HDTV content into Flash for the web.
Particularly useful when starting with HD source material, grid encoding of H.264 is ideal for breaking news and sport, or for providing more time for creative editing of long form content while requiring less for transcoding.
Anystream Agility 2G grid encoding divides source material into small elements and processes them in parallel, therefore providing a linearly scalable performance improvement. With HD source material typically requiring the processing of more than 62 million pixels per second, H.264-style encoding is particularly processor intensive, but is handled with ease via the Anystream Agility 2G system.
Grab Networks' EMEA Sales Director Garry Thompson said: "This advancement provides a boost of up to five times faster performance than previously available; unrivalled real time availability in the form of reliable, automated fall-over and recovery safeguards for mission-critical applications; and the transfer and preservation of optimum quality up to and including HD."
Grab Networks will be at Stand: 1.C31 at IBC 2009.
