Softvelum’s Nimble Streamer
The Nimble Streamer media server powers real-time video applications and experiences with higher resolution and frame rates at a TCO that is ten times less than CPU-based software video encoding.

SoftvelumTM services streaming platform operators in more than 100 countries. With the birth of the metaverse and interactive streaming video applications including cloud gaming and live streaming, a common challenge is the need to reduce carbon footprints and promote environmentally sound strategies while simultaneously accommodating explosive growth in concurrent video streams.

HOW IT WORKS

Integration

Softvelum’s Nimble Streamer media server’s advanced capabilities include real-time, low latency encoding with support for transport protocols including SRT, NDI, RTMP, RTSP, MPEGTS, RIST and with playback support for HLS and MPEG-DASH as well as Softvelum’s custom SLDP low latency playback protocol.

The Nimble Streamer media server is a freeware application for x86 Servers and features advanced encoding capability enabled by ten installed NETINT Codensity T408 Video Transcoders.

The Codensity T408 is an ASIC-based NVMe video transcoder module that supports H.264 AVC and H.265 HEVC video encoding at up to 8K resolution and with 10-bit HDR.

Benefits

Video Encoding with Lowest TCO and Highest Density

Total Cost of Ownership

The Nimble Streamer media server enables a reduction in TCO for hyperscale cloud platforms and video service providers.

NETINT’s Codensity technology uses a purpose  built ASIC to increase encoding density compared to software-based solutions. This increase in encoding density expands the number of channels that can be encoded without increasing the rack footprint. Reduced power and HVAC cost means a lower TCO and higher density can be achieved without sacrificing video quality or latency.
