At the NAB Show in Las Vegas, Imagine Communications will be introducing its Selenio One, a unified software-based video compression platform. Powered by the company's Zenium software framework, Selenio One is designed to consolidate compression capabilities into a single platform, and also to free up bandwidth for high-speed Internet and other subscriber services.

Intended for cable operators, telecommunications companies and satellite TV providers, Selenio One is intended to provide a transition platform for video service providers that are evolving their services to support hybrid distribution models. It's initially shipping with support for MPEG-2 and H.264 transcoding and statistical multiplexing.

The Linux-based platform is deployed on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers and is scheduled for commercial availability in June.
