System Requirement for SBS IP Video Transcoder

  • What hardware spec do I need for 16/32/64 channel SD/HD/4K transcoding? Shall I choose CPU or GPU transcoding?

IPVTL utilizes both CPU and GPU encoding technique. The transcoding capacity is basically decided by both the CPU/GPU performance and the video encoding profile you demand. For high density transcoding, we recommend private server with Intel Xeon processsor or NVIDIA Quadro/GRID/Tesla graphics card installed, as they have better parallel computing performance.
