Harmonic, a provider of high performance video systems, has announced that Akimbo, a provider of monetizing video over the internet, has selected its Rhozet Carbon Coder solution for automated web-based video transcoding and packaging.
Harmonic’s Rhozet Carbon Coder is a transcoding application that facilitates the transfer of media between a variety of platforms, including acquisition, editing, playout, archive, the internet and mobile devices.
According to Harmonic, the Carbon Coder can run as a stand-alone application or as part of a multi-node, fully-automated rendering farm. Carbon Coder provides high-performance transcoding for business environments, from studios to enterprise-scale installations.
David Trescot, vice president of the Rhozet business unit at Harmonic, said: Akimbo is breaking new ground in the VOD arena, as is Carbon Coder. Carbon Coder’s technical capability is just one of the important aspects of transcoding.
