WISI transcodes ABR streams via the Inca IP Video Platform. The Inca is a high-density IP processing platform that specializes in bridging the gap between legacy and new video technologies, including next-gen HEVC and ABR transcode applications. Operators can easily consolidate multiple functions and eliminate racks of legacy headend equipment with one sophisticated platform.
“The return on investment has been pretty great. We’ve greatly reduced power usage and lowered cooling costs by over 8,000 watts or about $ 13,000 a year. In the summer alone, that right there sold itself. We’ve also consolidated our entire core video network from three and a half racks to just half a rack, which is a major savings in rack space,” said Johnson.
“The results are increased stability of our IP video network, with better use and efficiency on our DOCSIS spectrum.
We have more than tripled our speeds as they were before,” said Johnson.
With WISI’s solution, operators reduce cooling costs, power consumption, and consolidate rack space while they gain significant operational efficiencies with integrated analytics and centralized monitoring.
“Our troubleshooting time has greatly reduced. We can now keep our team focused and more efficient regarding solving issues and trying to increase profitability and reduce expenses. So, we’ve cut our operating expenses across the board,” said Johnson.
