Turnkey - Which package?

Turnkey - Which package?

Choose Professional vs Enterprise Turnkey solution.

Certified turnkey solutions

We have created two fantastic packages for you to choose from. The decision depends largely on your perspective towards enterprise or commodity components and your business requirements.

Commodity components are far more cost effective, however enterprise components offer features such as ECC memory (protects against data corruption), redundant power supplies, increased CPU processing power and motherboard bandwidth.

In addition, enterprise hardware offers the ability to install a high speed host bus adapter offering fast connectivity to remote storage (SAN / NAS).

Why choose our solution?

We understand the needs of our software better than anyone else. We have thoroughly studied the demands of simultaneously decoding and encoding popular compressed broadcast formats on a variety of CPUs.

We have mastered which GPUs offer the optimum performance for high end OpenCL media processing and how many PCI lanes are required to unleash the full potential of a multi-GPU system.

We have ensured you have fast memory and enough of it to convert even 4K media! All this combined with our extensive thermal analysis, high powered efficient PSU and a robust, versatile form factor provides solutions worthy of the SAM brand.
