Video Encoding with Lowest TCO and Highest Density

OTT video transcoding workflows are typically accomplished utilizing CPU-based software transcoding. Pelican utilizes ASIC-powered NETINT T408 Video Processing Units enabling highly efficient video transcoding workflows. Deploying Pelican in your data center provides a 10:1 reduction in rack space combined with a 95% reduction in operating costs (OPEX).

$1,320,330 operational cost savings per year based on 10,000 live streams.
The Pelican Density Video Transcoding Server utilizes one-fortieth the rack space for the same number of streams as compared with CPU-based video encoders. Pelican Density video transcoders use 80X less energy than CPU-powered video transcoding systems.
