MONTREAL -- Octasic Inc., a leading innovator of media processing and wireless solutions, today announced the immediate availability of its TXP1000 high-density video transcoding cards, which deliver the lowest power and highest channel density available on the market today. Offered in a PCI Express (PCIe) form factor, the TXP1000 cards enable network service providers and Internet equipment manufacturers to rapidly develop and deploy the most efficient and highest channel density video transcoding systems.

With demand for mobile video on the rise, real-time video transcoding is required to support the myriad of device types, video formats and dynamic bandwidth conditions on the open Internet and mobile networks. To address the system design challenges associated with meeting the computational demands of video transcoding -- particularly in terms of power usage and cost efficiency -- Octasic is delivering a complete solution that includes the PCIe cards, a comprehensive audio/video media processing and transcoding software stack and a host API. A single TXP1000 card easily delivers 335 channels of video transcoding while offering power consumption well within the power budget of a single PCI card.

"Growth in mobile video services like video telephony, video streaming, Interactive Voice and Video Response (IVVR), multimedia messaging, TV anywhere, and mobile conferencing is forcing telecoms, OEMs and Internet equipment providers to rethink their usual approach to media processing," said John Fry, director of business development at Octasic Inc. "Compared to standard x86 server-based solutions that suffer from serious power, cost and scalability limitations, Octasic's TXP1000-based systems provide tangible benefits that can cut video transcoding systems capital costs in half, reduce the power consumption by a factor of 8 and still deliver 5 times more channels per unit of rack space. Octasic is unique in that it has the right combination of low power DSP technology, video expertise and communications technology heritage to successfully meet the demands of this growing market."
