The ‘Phoenix Engine’ is the name given to the technology
that captures and processes multimedia. The Phoenix
engine is not only powerful in its range of abilities but also in
the way it is structured. Phoenix has a flexible connectivity ‘language’ that allows various processing objects to be combined together to
perform a certain task. Because all of the processing objects support
the same connection rules, they can be combined in many varied ways
to produce application solutions.
Actis Media has developed the Phoenix Engine
in C++ and Assembler, two of the most powerful programming languages
available. Being fully multi instance compatible and a true multi
threaded implementation means the Phoenix engine not only performs
optimally on existing technology but also makes full use of the
latest generation of processors (Hyper Threading Technology).
Being modular and using a standard module interface also enables
customers to incorporate additional functionality or support additional
hardware efficiently. This method leads to a high level of initial
best fit for requirements and reduces delivery cost and time.
Actis Media has spent significant sums annually
in development of new technologies without direct commercial requests.
This ‘Type 1’ development ensures growth in functionality,
experience and understanding of multimedia processing. Technology
offered by third part vendors can often be incorporated into the
Phoenix Engine should the need arise. Actis Media technology can
also be integrated into third party systems.
Some of the more important objects developed by Actis Media include:
