SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Entone today announced its collaboration with HP in launching the world’s highest performing video on demand (VOD) server solution that will significantly lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) for video service operators.

The breakthrough VOD server solution achieves single-server throughput of over 100 Gb/s. The Entone platform on a 64 processor HP Integrity Superdome server running Microsoft® Windows® Server 2003 delivers over 27,400 simultaneous MPEG-2 video streams at 3.75 Mb/s per stream or over 50,000 MPEG-4 streams at 2 Mb/s per stream.

The world-leading performance of the Entone VOD platform is enabled by Entone’s StreamLiner XL software coupled with HP Integrity servers. Entone’s StreamLiner XL and HP Integrity servers provide an extremely reliable, scalable and flexible VOD platform with a track record for supporting 24x7 operations for many of the world’s most demanding workloads. This combination of performance and reliability is unprecedented in the industry and can result in a significant reduction in the TCO for operators deploying large-scale, carrier-class VOD services.

“There was a time when deploying a video server of this scale was impractical due to technical and cost limitations,” said Tim Warren, Entone CTO. “By working closely with HP for the past 18 months, we have jointly developed a solution that sets a new performance and TCO standard for the industry.”
