RGB Networks Aims to Change Video Industry with Pioneering Open Source Software Transcoder Initiative

Called ‘Ripcode Transcoder’, after the company Ripcode, which was acquired by RGB Networks in 2010 and which originally developed TransAct, the new, cloud-enabled software transcoder will provide RGB Networks’ customers with greater control, integration and flexibility in their video delivery workflows. In a pioneering move, and harnessing the industry momentum toward developing cloud-based solutions, RGB Networks is actively welcoming operators and vendors to be part of a community of contributors to the open source project.


The intended feature set of the open source Ripcode Transcoder will include:

  • Both Linear (live) and Video on Demand (VOD) transcoding
  • Full cluster management, load balancing, and failover
  • Linear and VOD transcoding of MPEG2, H.264, H.265, AAC, AC3, and other industry leading video and audio codecs
  • File-to-File watch folders
  • Full reporting and logging of events
  • Commercial-grade GUI
  • RESTful APIs

Unlike other open source projects, an open source transcoder is more difficult to release due to built-in professional codec licensing. RGB Networks will release Ripcode Transcoder with only the codecs that can be legally used with open source software. Additionally, in order to facilitate use of the transcoder in professional environments that require licensed, third party codecs and pre/post processing filters, the Ripcode transcoder will include a plug-in framework, that will allow use of best-of-breed codecs and filters.

Cloud video processing takes centre stage at NAB 2014

Cloud video processing takes centre stage at NAB 2014 | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

When it comes to video processing, the biggest story from NAB Show, and indeed the spring trade show season generally, was not the continued progress in HEVC or UHD. Though very important, these were largely anticipated. It was instead the growing interest in the virtualization of video processing, whether that is using on-premise or cloud-hosted compute resources. Most of the major compression vendors made significant announcements to outline their virtualization capabilities.

Ericsson unveiled its Ericsson Virtualized Encoding, a unified software solution that can be implemented on processing platforms containing a combination of dedicated programmable hardware, like Ericsson’s video processing chip, in customer premises, and software or GPU-based servers that are on premise or potentially deployed in the cloud. Using a software abstraction layer, the solution is completely task and service-oriented, intelligently allocating encoding resources regardless of where they are, based on the task in hand and on operator priorities such as deployment speed, video quality and output.

Review: Harmonic ProMedia Xpress

Review: Harmonic ProMedia Xpress | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

The Harmonic, Inc. Workflow System (WFS; created by Rhozet, which is now a part of Harmonic) is an architecture for retrieving and encoding audio and video files into multiple single file and adaptive formats, checking their quality, and delivering the encoded results to local or remote destinations. The primary encoding engine has been ProMedia Carbon (formerly Carbon Coder), a Swiss army knife program with extensive input and output options, excellent output quality, and many other fine features. Unfortunately, encoding speed was not one of them.

 

To remedy this, Harmonic recently released ProMedia Xpress, a highly focused product designed to fit neatly into the encoding workflows used by many broadcasters. Specifically, in its first iteration, the product can only input MPEG-2 transport streams using either the MPEG-2 or H.264 codec, and it can only output H.264 encoded MPEG-2 transport streams, though with additional licenses, the system can convert these outputs into chunked video files and metadata for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), and Smooth Streaming.

Taking a look at Amazon Elastic Transcoder

Taking a look at Amazon Elastic Transcoder | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

There is a lot of buzz today in the online video community about Amazon’s recent entry into the cloud video transcoding space. Of course, this is nothing entirely new for Amazon Web Services; popular cloud encoding services have run on Amazon EC2 infrastructure for years now. With Elastic Transcode, Amazon takes a step up the cloud stack, offering a Software-as-a-Service that competes directly with GridVid.me, Zencoder, and other popular cloud video encoding services.

 

Competition is great for customers and the industry in general, and we welcome Amazon to the market. We are also glad to see that Amazon followed our lead and introduced their product with pricing almost as low as ours. The message to customers is clear: You don’t have to spend a lot of money on encoding.

 

With this blog post, I want to take a finer look at Amazon’s Elastic Transcode service and how a few key features compare to other cloud video encoding services, like GridVid.me.

Microsoft Azure Media Services – How to encode in the Azure Cloud – Part 2

Microsoft Azure Media Services – How to encode in the Azure Cloud – Part 2 | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

After the first post which give an overview and explain how set-up a WAMS environment, I continue the discovery of WAMS World (sorry for the pun ). In this post, we will see how we can transform a video from a input format to another format. It’s possible to generate multiple output format or to encrypt the video. But we will see it in a next posts.


First of all, we need to understand the different terms we will use in WAMS. In my example, I want to obtain this workflow :
1. create an asset : an asset is an entity which contains all informations on the video (metadata, …)
2. upload a file in blob storage and associate to the asset
3. apply a job on the asset. A job is composed by one or more tasks. A task is an action : eg: encoding with protection. To run the task, we use a MediaProcessor.
4. after the job completed, deliver the video via the Azure CDN.

Sony’s 4K encoder partner eyeIO delivers UltraHD on today's broadband (less than 10mbps)

Sony’s 4K encoder partner eyeIO delivers UltraHD on today's broadband (less than 10mbps) | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Yesterday, Sony continued its push to jump-start the 4K ecosystem with the announcement of a 4K TV media player. The $699 device will be available from retailers on July 15th and will come bundled with 10 movies and video shorts at 4K resolution. The encoder technology for the content comes from eyeIO, the power behind the Netflix streaming service. I stopped by eyeIO offices to get a demonstration of some of the 4K content. What I found convinced me more than ever that online delivery will lead the ultraHD charge. However, regardless of 4Ks fortunes advanced video codecs like eyeIO's are a game-changer.

 

Doubly amazing is the bitrate these movies were being streamed at: less than 10mbps! Mr. Vargas also claimed the next release of the codec will reduce that even further. At bitrates as low as this many consumers in the US could stream a 4K movie today on their existing broadband connections.

DB Plugins Launches dbObscura To Protect Media Files in Oracle/FFMpeg workflows

DB Plugins Launches dbObscura To Protect Media Files in Oracle/FFMpeg workflows | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Linux-based solution is intended to secure media files in Oracle databases throughout workflow cycle.

 

Steve Guilford, president of Database Plugins, LLC, is a man on a mission: over the course of the last few months, Guilford has been informing Streaming Mediaeditors of the progress of his new Oracle 11g-centric media transcoding solution. Recently, Guilford announced completion of a secure transcoding product, called dbObscura, as part of the overall DB Plugins lineup.

 

"You may recall that I stuck my neck out and said I could transcode securely at the data-layer by sourcing from tables in the database," said Guilford in a recent email.  "Well, I've figured out how to make FFMPeg seamlessy operate in a secure 'data-layer' environment whereby the media never has to exist as a 'normal' file, in a manner that allows any 'file' based transcoding engine and use it as a secure data-layer transcoder."  

 

Guilford currently focuses on Oracle Database 11g, saying that his solution picks up where the Oracle Multimedia framework leaves off, but building on the benefits found within Oracle's secure file infrastructure.

Nicolas Weil's insight:

Interesting approach - but one can think that there are less expensive ways to efficiently protect files during transcoding workflows...

Michel Marchand's comment, May 7, 2013 10:24 AM
Wonder also whether the solution is Open Source or not... FFMpeg to be of any real use must include GPL code like X264 and this looks like there is a proprietary interface with FFmpeg (even being pipes or using specific data structures) that according to GPL requires the external components to also be GPL...

Cloud transcoding rages at NAB

Cloud transcoding rages at NAB | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

There is also the performance element in that state-of-the-art cloud transcoding platforms can be best for live streaming where latency must be kept to a minimum. Elemental Technologies, exhibiting at NAB, has scored heavily with leading broadcasters by touting high transcoding performance based on massively parallel processing within the cloud. By using clusters of off the shelf graphical processing units, Elemental keeps costs down while being able to boast that it can transcode both SD and HD content “faster than real time”, which is not quite as magic as it sounds. It merely means that transcoding is not on the critical time path and is executed more quickly than some of the other functions involved in end to end content delivery. Transcoding then does not add to the latency budget.

Cloud services are perfectly suited for processor-intensive jobs, although bandwidth constraints can present a challenge. Discover 12 cloud video specialists that can save companies time and money.

 

Hype frequently exceeds reality when it comes to new technologies, and cloud computing is no exception. Media enterprises recognise the key benefits of the cloud as an opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with a project. They know that with the cloud, they no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Producers of broadcast TV programming, B2B, or live events streamers can spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes-and scale them down after use.

 

Yet while media companies have begun outsourcing their back office functions to the cloud, it's been a slower evolution to transition production and digital assets. There are concerns about the privacy and security of premium and exclusive content on servers owned by a third party.

Transcoding Best Practices: Mezzanine Formats

Transcoding Best Practices: Mezzanine Formats | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

First things first – What is a Mezzanine format? A mezzanine format is a mid-rez working copy of your video asset which is of sufficient quality to generate your highest output, but small enough to move around, archive, and work with. The goal is to free up resources once all major edits and processing are completed. The source of your mezzanine format can come from many places. When encoding from a tape with a fully completed asset, the encode can be the mezzanine file. When exporting from a non-linear editor such as Final Cut or Avid, the format chosen as the output can be a mezzanine. The point is, all major editing and processing is completed in the highest format available and this smaller asset can take it from here.
