Cirrascale® Slipstream™ RM1622DX Video Delivery and Transcoding Platform

It is estimated that by the year 2018, 79% of consumer-based traffic in the cloud will be from video and content delivery and media service providers will require transcode solutions with cost-efficient, dense designs to deliver HD video at a low cost per stream and per watt. The Cirrascale Slipstream RM1622DX is the first high-density, two-in-one rackmount server to meet this need.

Product Features and Benefits

  • Mega-dense architecture provides two systems in one, doubling density.
  • Delivers up to 36 streams at 1080p for less than $80 per stream while consuming fewer than six watts of power per stream.
  • Open architecture solution that ensures easy future upgrades to the latest hardware.

Cirrascale Slipstream RM1622DX Rackmount Overview

The Cirrascale Slipstream RM1622DX is a high density, two-in-one system supporting the new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v4 product family with Intel® Iris™ Pro graphics P6300. It provides one of the lowest cost per streams available on the market with up to 36 streams at 1080p for less than $80 per stream while consuming fewer than six watts of power per stream - over 1,400 streams per standard 19" rack.

Now you can support up to 60% more transcodes per node than some discrete graphics solutions, lowering your total cost of ownership while enabling smoother content on demand, live broadcasting, or basic CDN video transcoding. Additionally, for companies looking to support 4K streams, the two-in-one high density rackmount system supports two full 4K streams, one per each node.

The Cirrascale Slipstream RM1622DX is specifically designed to take advantage of the improved media codec features offered with the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v4 product family with Intel® Iris™ Pro graphics P6300. With its predecessor, software transcoding required a large amount of compute thereby reducing the total number of quality HD streams a system could provide. With the new processors, complex parts of the codec are off-loaded to the Intel Iris Pro graphics engine which in turn greatly reduces the overall CPU utilization. Additionally, the Intel® Media Server Studio provides a hardware abstraction layer that grants access to third-party media applications to fully take advantage of hardware assisted encoding and decoding.

With this state-of-the-art video transcoding solution, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v4 product family with Intel® Iris™ Pro graphics P6300, Cirrascale is facilitating data center transformation by providing solutions that meet the needs of today's adapting market.
