MONTREAL, Canada and RUST, Germany - March 23, 2015 - Vantrix, a global provider of media optimization and delivery solutions to video service providers and mobile service providers, today announced that it will showcase its software-defined Vantrix Media Platform running on HP Moonshot at the World Hosting Days in the Intel booth (Stand C26) at Europa-Park in Rust, Germany March 24-26 2015.

Vantrix Media Platform is a software-defined video-processing, optimization, caching and analytics platform, available as a turnkey appliance for deployment on-premises or in the cloud. Built on OpenStack for virtualization, it offers a modular, pluggable and extensible architecture for live and on-demand video transcoding and optimizing media experiences via adaptive bitrate streaming for delivery to TVs, PCs and mobile devices.

“We are excited to highlight our support for HP Moonshot running on the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family at World Hosting Days,” said Jean Mayrand, CEO and president of Vantrix Corporation. “Our demo will show how our virtualized graphics processing enables ultra-high-density transcoding, powering up to 450x realtime for on-demand video file conversion.”

Using accelerated virtualized graphics processing powered by Intel® IrisTM graphics hardware, Vantrix Media Platform running on HP Moonshot can deliver up to 450x realtime for on-demand video transcodes or up to 450 simultaneous live video feeds. The HP Moonshot high-density 4.3RU platform helps service providers reduce operational costs and lower power and space requirements in a highly scalable appliance using 45 individually serviceable hotplug cartridges.

Vantrix Media Platform is installed as a virtual machine and operates on OpenStack, enabling flexibility and scalability. A single server can run concurrent applications – such as Live and VoD transcoding, DRM encryption, file packaging and streaming – with selectable resource assignments for different uses. In addition, the system easily scales across multiple servers in a cluster that shares virtual resources on all physical nodes without additional management software required.
