altEmerson Network Power (Tempe, AZ) has announced a performance breakthrough for adding voice and video to network server applications. Where a typical commercial Host Media Processing solution is limited to 2000 ports per server, a single Emerson Network Power PCIE-8120 PCI Express media processing acceleration card is capable of transcoding over 7000 bidirectional voice channels from G.711 to G.729A, and multiple cards can be added to a single server for even higher performance. Featuring up to 12 low power Octasic digital signal processors (DSPs) with embedded voice or video firmware, the Emerson Network Power PCIEe-8120 can also transcode over 300 mobile video streams at CIF resolution, and offers support for high definition video resolutions up to 1080p. It enables users to add high density, highly scalable voice and video processing to network applications, while using less space, less power and at lower cost than the alternative of adding more servers or suffering significantly reduced application performance.
