THE SOFTWARE-BASED SIGNAL PROCESSING PLATFORM

softGear™ is a future facing technology platform that creates new ways to acquire, process, manage and distribute content. It offers video, audio and metadata processing microservices on commercial-off-the-shelf hardware and not only complements existing hardware-based workflows but enables the transition to software-based on-premise workflows as well as cloud environments in the future.

Within softGear, algorithms are encapsulated using modern container technology, targeting CPU or GPU rather than FPGA or DSP, and media processing engines are deployed as microservices instead of dedicated physical cards. OS-level virtualization architecture allows for the integration of IP from other companies that would not otherwise be possible. A common user interface framework through DashBoard ensures that softGear is extremely user-friendly for operators everywhere.

STATE OF THE ART ARCHITECTURE

Modern OS-level virtualization technology allows easy scaling, migration and redundancy, giving you the ultimate flexibility in solution deployment on-premise today, and in public or private cloud tomorrow.

DESIGNED FOR HIGH FLEXIBILITY

Allows you to easily adapt to changing workflow requirements, addressing rapidly evolving environments. softGear™ applications deployed on-prem today can migrate to distributed architectures tomorrow, protecting your technology investment.
