NAB 2014: Elemental’s video processing software has been integrated into Ericsson’s Virtualised Encoding system.

Elemental said the integration would provide “the most agile use of platforms and technology improvements for TV anywhere services”.

Elemental co founder and chief executive Sam Blackman said: “The integration of Elemental solutions into the Ericsson platform will help enable pay TV operators, content owners, broadcasters and sports programmers to transform their traditional TV businesses into multiscreen successes across the globe.”

Ericsson head of TV compression Dr Giles Wilson added: “By expanding Ericsson Virtualised Encoding to also support Elemental software encoding, we are enabling TV service providers to efficiently address the growing complexity of multiscreen TV service delivery within a single solution.

“As providers strive to address consumer demand for TV anywhere, we are focused on helping them make the right choices with their multiscreen video processing deployments.”
