Brevity showcased in Major New Services Solution for Media and Entertainment Customers at NAB Show 2013
Las Vegas, April 9, 2013 – Brevity is featured at NAB Show 2013 as part of the Dell Create solution demo in the StudioXperience Sponsored by Intel Booth – SL9610, further enhancing the vendor ecosystem available to Dell customers. The new Dell Create solution, announced by Dell this morning, helps customers reduce operational costs and increase efficiencies through the Dell-managed organization and implementation of a customized combination of customer-approved vendor solutions, like Brevity, carefully selected to operate seamlessly together to meet the unique needs of each customer.
Dell Create, Multi-Vendor Cloud for Content Creators, is a new professional service from Dell designed to help large broadcast companies, studios, creative shops and other media and entertainment customers dramatically improve their content workflows with a centralized IT environment.
Brevity V3 can help offer extreme cost savings within the Dell Create solution by transporting high volumes of video between locations while combining transport and transcode in a single step. Powered by Dell high-performance GPU computing platform, Brevity algorithms translates into massive gains in acceleration when transporting media files between locations.
Two core algorithms, Data Warp, which is bit for bit lossless, and Image Warp, an optimized algorithm for video that is visually lossless, power the Brevity solution. Image Warp has been tested successfully against ProRes 4444 and Avid DNxHD 220; in a recent Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) test, it cored at or above 60 decibels, which is an objective industry measure of quality. Both Data Warp and Image Warp create “transport” mezzanine files that reduce storage requirements while supporting industry standard formats at ingest and at output.
Tested by a veritable who’s who of North American broadcasters, Brevity V3 moves securely encrypted files over Internet, fiber, or data satellite up to 30X faster than otherwise possible while preserving image quality and resolution, with support for leading industry codecs and formats such as Avid® DNxHD®, EVS MXF, Final Cut Pro, Sony Cameras and others. Brevity has been tested successfully on uncompressed, high bit-rate video, 2k and 4k DPX files, as well as compressed HD and SD files.
Brevity V3 is based on a powerful project paradigm that allows for approved users from one or more organizations to access project files virtualized across storage arrays, private, public, or hybrid clouds. When a file is ingested, a set of rules associated with the video sends it to multiple destinations automatically via accelerated transport, while simultaneously transcoding to the needed formats. The video files move with speed to all locations, arriving at the destination already in one or more requested formats based on pre-set profiles. Brevity V3 also has open web-services interfaces that enable integration and connections with a wide range of existing applications and tools.
Brevity’s main security measures consist of 256-bit AES encryption of the transport file during transmission and storage, and asset encryption keys transmitted using 4096-bit RSA encryption.
Brevity’s industry partners include Avid, with support for all Avid DNxHD formats and EVS, with support for the proprietary legacy EVS MXF format as well as the EVS MXF OP1a and QuickTime wrappers. Brevity also offers complete support for Apple® ProRes including the much in demand ProRes-DNxHD conversions.
Brevity provides breakthrough technology that offers for the first time the ability to simultaneous transcode while transporting video at incredibly fast speeds over any network. Brevity is working with leading networks, studios, content providers, sports teams, and production houses to redefine media production and distribution around the world.
