Dallas-based IPTV company Kasenna has announced MediaBase XMP 8.2, the latest version of its video-on-demand (VOD) server software platform.
The platform claims to now deliver 10,000+ MPEG-4 streams per 1 Rack-Unit (RU) high servers and 120,000+ MPEG-4 streams in a single rack - an increase of more than 40% in streaming performance on the previous release.
Kasenna claims that a cluster of 16 servers running MediaBase XMP 8.2 software can deliver an aggregate capacity of more than 160,000 MPEG-4 streams.
The XMP 8.2 release of MediaBase Video Server software also delivers 10 GigE NIC Support with more than 95% efficiency and utilisation; N+1 server redundancy in a cluster of servers; and 1-for-1 Network Interface Card (NIC) redundancy using Kasenna’s High Performance Network (HPN) Streaming Software
”This system demonstrates that video-on-demand systems can scale to support very large numbers of subscribers with a completely manageable number of servers,” said Bob Larribeau, senior analyst at the Multimedia Research Group.
“It also shows that Kasenna’s software, riding on the mainstream server hardware technology curve, can produce a high-performance, scalable and reliable VOD system.”
