Harmonic Inc. said today that its Rhozet media transcoding technology was picked as the core technology for the new Adobe Flash Media Encoding Server.

According to Harmonic, the new Flash Media Encoding Server can take advantage of multiple CPU cores within a single machine, as well as multiple machines in a network, resulting in the fastest transcoding platform available for preparing content in the FLV format.

Rhozet technology accelerates encoding of F4V files using the new H.264 video codec, as well as FLV files using the older VP6 codec.

“With content created and delivered via the Flash platform reaching hundreds of millions of desktops, handheld devices and set-top boxes, Adobe is a leader in enabling the anytime, anywhere viewing model,” said Harmonic CEO and President Patrick Harshman. “At Harmonic, we are likewise focused on delivering a highly personalized video experience. The selection of Rhozet to provide core transcoding technology for Adobe underscores Rhozet’s reputation in the market. It’s a true mark of distinction to become a part of such a pervasive and compelling platform.”

Harmonic’s Rhozet Carbon Coder is a universal transcoding application that facilitates the transfer of media between a variety of platforms, including acquisition, editing, playout, archive, the Internet and mobile devices.
