Cisco® Transcode Manager (CTM) expands the revenue potential of content delivered to any device. Whether setting up a workflow to deliver IP video to a set-top box, PC, or mobile device - as a progressive download or as adaptive bitrate (ABR) over HTTP - Cisco can help you maximize your return on investment (ROI). Cisco Transcode Manager can simplify your workflow and eliminate the bottlenecks, starting with ingestion, encoding, and encryption and ending with quality check, packaging, and delivery to storage and a Content Delivery Network (CDN).
The Cisco Transcode Manager Server is the foundation of Cisco Transcode Manager. As CTM's master controller, the Server stores all data, templates, and events; coordinates and manages load balancing and failover; and distributes jobs associated with the pre-encode analysis, encode, and post-encode functions.
