ADLINK Media Cloud Server MCS-2040

ADLINK Media Cloud Server MCS-2040

The increasing prevalence of high-bandwidth multimedia applications in use over the network, such as video streaming and conferencing, remote education, remote medical services and real-time video analytics, requires providers to upgrade media server performance in order to deliver a high quality user experience. However, general purpose rack servers currently available on the market were not specifically designed for media applications, lacking the required levels of performance and compute density. In contrast to general purpose rack servers which usually have at most two CPUs and perform software video transcoding, the ADLINK Media Cloud Server is an Application Ready Intelligent Platform (ARIP) for advanced video applications with high density computing performance that is designed from the ground up to meet the technical considerations specific to media servers while being cost-effective and easy to maintain.
