Cloud-ready Contribution Encoder for World-Class Live Outputs

MediaKind CE1 is the world’s-first professional contribution video encoding-based solutions on cloud-ready software. It comes coupled with powerful X86 hardware acceleration. Combined with MediaKind’s multi-codec and multi-service decoder – MK RX1, the CE1 enables an end-to-end media contribution workflow that is more resilient and future-ready than any other existing professional media contribution processing and delivery solutions.

Why MK CE1?

MK CE1 enables live events to be captured reliably, cost-effectively, and in the highest possible quality. It also ensures low transmission latency and bandwidth.

While MK CE1 is the latest generation contribution encoder, it complements the well-established AVP 2000 Contribution Encoder. The CE1 delivers similar heavy-duty performance and has identical low latency video compression capability, but with the additional benefits of All IP and support for the latest in content protection to prevent unauthorized access to valuable, high quality contribution feeds.

The CE1 provides a highly flexible contribution encoding platform that can provide standard HD (High Definition) video encoding all the way up to high quality 4:2:2, High Dynamic Range, Wide Color Gamut UHD video encoding at the demanded low latency.

The CE1 allows quick and easy upgrades whenever required. The upgrades can be performed either by the addition of software licenses, or hardware option cards. It has an enormous potential to support new standards and protocols as and when they’re developed and adopted.
