Genesis Networks Deploys igolgi’s Presto SD T101

August 17, 2010

igolgi, Inc., a provider of high quality video compression solutions based on multicore platforms, announced today that Genesis Networks has successfully deployed igolgi’s Presto SD product that provides real time transcoding, format conversion, delay and audio leveling in a compact form factor.

The Presto SD four-channel one rack unit solution has been successfully deployed at Genesis Network’s New York facility for converting four incoming PAL channels in MPEG2 compressed format to NTSC content compressed in both H.264 and MPEG2 format for distribution in the United States. The Presto product also includes a programmable delay feature for the various time zones and also performs error correction on the input and inserts forward error correction (COPv3) on the outgoing signal. In addition, the Presto product provides audio volume control to allow Genesis to control individual audio levels on the variety of international channels.

“We are extremely pleased with the performance of igolgi’s Presto system, as it delivers superior quality conversion and has proven to be extremely stable, flexible, easy to install and maintain”, said Jeremy Dujardin, CTO Genesis Networks, “The compact form factor also saves us on rack space.”

“Genesis’s deployment of the Presto product in their network demonstrates that software based real time video processing for enterprise class applications is extremely efficient and effective. The four channel Presto SD product replaces 20 rack units worth of equipment into a single rack unit x86 server. The flexibility of the platform allowed igolgi to tailor the product to meet Genesis workflow requirements. We hope to grow this partnership by creating entire solutions in software that are highly optimized for Genesis’s workflows”, said Jeff Cooper, CEO, igolgi Inc.
