TMMI Launches Prototype Server Farm to Test Codec
WILMINGTON, DELAWARE--(Marketwired - October 23, 2013) - TMM, Inc. (PINKSHEETS:TMMI) ("TMMI" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has approved the construction of a server farm to expand its video technology development lab testing and development capabilities.
The unit's primary use will be testing outcomes in side-by-side comparisons of TRUDEF™ at different settings to RAW content, as well as other codecs and video enhancement technologies. The prototype also is designed to operate automatically and has the capacity to host over 200 remote client-controlled computers in parallel through a secure VPN.
Phase I of the newly designed server array will initially consist of 22 multi-core computers, connected through an internal network to programmers' workstations. It will operate within a separate secure facility linked to TMMI's Development Lab.
TMMI programmers will use the server farm to compress video in parallel to determine optimal settings for codec scalability, image quality and encoding speed. It will be used to compare, test and optimize a variety of content supplied by strategic partners, licensees and customers.
As configured, the server farm will have capacity comparable to certain commercial compression entities used for contract production. It will be used primarily for research and modeling for larger-scale licensees, high-volume archival clients and mass-production service bureaus.
