Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) has introduced a media processing solution, Ericsson MediaFirst Video Processing. It's intended to manage and support all compute environments and is deployable in private cloud, public cloud and on-premises environments.

Ericsson MediaFirst Video Processing unites a suite of video processing capabilities and video compression research. It compliments the company's MediaFirst TV Platform to create cloud-centric TV experiences, and is the first offering as a result of the integration of Ericsson's compression and Envivio's software-based encoding portfolios, following the acquisition of Envivio by Ericsson in last year.

Software-defined management and workflow orchestrate and manage video processing configurations and architectures that span multiple compute platforms, and a suite of video coding algorithms and processing functions build business use cases for headend functions.
