DALLAS -- Imagine Communications, a global leader in video and advertising solutions serving the media and entertainment, multichannel video programming distributors and enterprise markets, announced today the expansion of its industry-leading family of packaging and transcoding products with the introduction of SelenioNext™ Just-In-Time Transcoding (JITT). Based on Imagine Communications’ popular SelenioNext transcoder for high-channel count live/linear applications, SelenioNext JITT helps service providers realize dramatic gains in video storage efficiency.

The on-the-fly transcoding capabilities of SelenioNext JITT significantly reduce the footprint of storage-intensive applications, such as cloud DVR (cDVR), enabling substantial savings in storage while reducing costs and opening up new monetization opportunities for video content owners and distributors.

SelenioNext JITT, a market-leading high-density just-in-time transcoder, allows service providers to store content in a single, high-quality bit rate. Additional bit rates required for multiscreen deployments are transcoded only when a video asset is requested for playback. The on-the-fly attributes of SelenioNext JITT can reduce storage requirements up to 80%. These efficiencies are enabled by the market-leading performance and density of SelenioNext JITT, a component of the company’s CloudXtream DVR solution.

Integrating multiple functions into a single-server platform, SelenioNext JITT provides highly dense, scalable and operationally efficient transcoding capabilities to meet growing demand for access to cDVR, IPTV and live programming from mobile and other connected screens. SelenioNext JITT also integrates seamlessly with Imagine Communications’ CloudXtream DVR and CloudXtream Dynamic Ad Insertion solutions, enabling service providers to experience substantial savings in storage while also generating incremental revenue through ad placements.

SelenioNext JITT is also able to breathe new life into large VOD libraries, enabling content to be transcoded for ABR multiscreen delivery as needed. SelenioNext JITT, combined with the just-in-time capabilities of the Imagine Communications Telurio Packager, allows service providers to stream their libraries in any required format, eliminating the need for transcoding and storing content in many bitrates and formats, including HLS, Smooth Streaming, HDS, DASH-TS and DASH-BMFF. This is accomplished with high capacity, high performance, low power consumption and industry-leading density, resulting in one of the lowest cost-per-output-stream ratios in the industry.
