Standards Transcoding® (performing a standards conversion during a transcode) many simultaneous files at near real-time speeds on a single server was impossible before Tachyon. Some transcoding companies attempt standards conversion while transcoding, but at 5‐8 times slower than real time, and only one conversion per server, economies of scale will never be realized. Other transcoding companies have “bolted-on” legacy SDI hardware-based standards converters in an attempt to make files flow in a Frankenstein-like fashion, but the end result is a long trip to/from baseband, and one conversion per server.
Partnering with HP OEM, Tachyon Appliances are available with up to 8 GPUs in each server, providing up to 16 GPUs to power 16 simultaneous Standards Transcodes in just 4 RU! Tachyon was created from the ground up for file-based workflows and leverages both CPU and GPU to provide unparalleled performance with both vertical and horizontal system scaling. There is not another transcoding/conversion product in the market that can match the speed and scalability of the Tachyon Appliance.
