For large-scale or mission-critical workflows, Vantage® offers several options to achieve a high level of visibility and a deep level of management and control. Vantage offers the only truly scalable solution for file-based transcoding, device interchange, automated content production, broadcast operations and multichannel distribution.
Vantage Array binds Vantage servers together, offering easy, cost-effective capacity expansion, failover, redundancy and load balancing. CPU-aware load balancing offers throughput improvement over traditional “round robin” techniques.
More Throughput, Fewer Servers
Vantage offers the industry's leading task scheduling, which is both cost-based and CPU-aware. It automatically responds to fluctuations in processing or media loads, ensuring optimal hardware utilization and offering as much as 30%-50% throughput improvement over competing transcoding products. This results in hardware cost savings, less power and cooling, and fewer servers to manage.
Predictability and Visibility
With web-based dashboard, customizable load balancing and retry rules, plus reporting capabilities for capacity planning, Vantage offers several options for true visibility into the workflow and the sound knowledge that work will be done as designed.
Integrate Multi-Vendor Environments
Vantage includes support for all the major broadcast servers, edit systems, streaming servers, cable VOD servers, SANs and virtually any network digital device in your facility. Vantage removes tape and signal-based steps in your video operations, enabling faster than real-time automation across the entire workflow
Scalable, Rock-solid Server Software
Processing can take place on one or multiple load-balanced servers providing high-volume processing to meet your exact media workflow needs. For critical workflows, priority-driven scheduling, distributed control and auto-failover ensure that there is no single point of failure, and no barrier between you and your workflow needs.
