Norsk and NETINT: Integrated to Elevate Live Streaming Efficiency

Jan Ozer

Jan Ozer

is Senior Director of Video Marketing at NETINT.

Jan is also a contributing editor to Streaming Media Magazine , writing about codecs and encoding tools. He has written multiple authoritative books on video encoding, including ‘Video Encoding by the Numbers: Eliminate the Guesswork from your Streaming Video’ and ‘ Learn to Produce Video with FFmpeg: In Thirty Minutes or Less’ and has produced multiple training courses relating to streaming media production.

With the growing demand for high-quality viewing experiences and the heightened attention on cost efficiency and environmental impact,  hardware acceleration plays an ever-more crucial role in live streaming. Here at NETINT, we want our customers to take full advantage of our transcoding hardware, so we’re pleased to announce that id3as NORSK now offers exceptionally efficient support for NETINT’s T408 and Quadra video processing unit (VPU) modules.

Here at NETINT, we want our customers to take full advantage of our transcoding hardware, so we’re pleased to announce that id3as NORSK now offers exceptionally efficient support for NETINT’s T408 and Quadra video processing unit (VPU) modules.

Using NETINT VPUs, video engineers can leverage the Norsk low-code live streaming SDK to achieve higher throughput and greater efficiency compared to running software on CPUs in on-prem or cloud configurations. Combined with Norsk’s proven high-availability track record, this simplifies delivering exceptional services with maximum reliability and performance at a never-before-available OPEX. 

NORSK AND NETINT

Norsk also takes advantage of Quadra’s hardware acceleration and onboard scaling to achieve complex compositions like picture-in-picture and resizing directly on the card, preserving host CPU cycles for other production chores. Even better, Norsk’s built-in ability to “do the right thing” also means that it knows when it can take advantage of hardware acceleration and when it can’t.  

 

For example, if you’re running Norsk on the T408, decoding will take place on the card, but Norsk will automatically utilize the host CPU for functions like picture-in-picture and resizing that the T408 doesn’t natively support. Then, Norsk will return the enriched media to the T408 for encoding. 

 

“As founding members of Greening of Streaming, we’re keenly aware of the pressing need to focus on energy efficiency at every point of the video stack,” says Norsk CEO Adrian Roe. “By utilizing the Quadra and T408 VPU modules, video engineers can reduce energy usage while achieving maximum performance even on compute-intensive tasks. With Norsk seamlessly running on NETINT hardware, live streaming services can consume as little energy as possible while delivering a fantastic experience to their customers.”
