Tehuti Networks Showcasing 4K Video Streaming Over 10 Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt TM 2 Adapter Prototype at IDF San Francisco 2014

Tehuti Networks, a fabless semiconductor company focused on enabling mass adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE), today announced the demonstration of end-to-end storage to workstation uncompressed 4K media delivery enabled by Tehuti TN4010 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) controller at Intel Developer Forum San Francisco September 9 through September 11, 2014. For high throughput applications, such as post production workflow, ingesting, editing, color grading, and media rendering, such a system can sustain seamless 4K media transfer over standard 10GbE networks to improve user productivity.

Thanks to digital projection in movie theatres and huge flat-screen TVs at home, more video today is being shot in UHD (3840x2160) and 4K (4096×2160) resolutions. The video may be stored compressed or uncompressed but must be streamed uncompressed for many editing, rendering, and other post-production workflows. However, uncompressed 4K is beyond the capacity of Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) networking.

Furthermore, modern workstations and Ultrabooks may lack even 1GbE connectivity or the capability to deploy an internal PCIe 10GbE network card (NIC), but may be equipped with a Thunderbolt TM connector capable of delivering up to 20Gbps. The Tehuti 10GBase-T Thunderbolt TM 2 adapter prototype brings high speed networking to these systems.

Tehuti TN4010 10GbE controllers can seamlessly enable delivery of uncompressed 4K streams to the desktop. As a result, customers can support more 4K video workflows at a lower cost with a simpler network, so they can focus on producing the next great blockbuster movie or hit TV series instead of managing GbE link aggregation.

“Tehuti has had a single-minded focus on enabling pervasive, cost-effective 10GbE networking on the desktop. In support of that goal, we are breaking new ground demonstrating incredible performance using 10 Gigabit Ethernet to support 4K workflows. Visitors to our booth will see first-hand that Tehuti TN4010-enabled end-to-end 10 Gigabit Ethernet networking, from workstation to Thecus high-performance NAS storage, has the horsepower needed to support uncompressed 4K steams,” said Nir Sever, COO, Tehuti Networks.

“We are pleased to support Tehuti Networks’ demonstration of 4K media delivery over end-to-end 10GbE networking,” said Florence Shih, CEO at Thecus Technology Corp. “The performance and power capabilities of the Tehuti TN4010 controller make it a key enabler for building 10GbE-capable, cost-effective NAS products.”

IDF Demo Highlights

The 4K video streaming demo comprises the following components:

  • Workstation with Tehuti TN9210-TB2 10GBase-T Thunderbolt TM 2 adapter prototype
  • 10GBase-T switch
  • Thecus high-performance NAS storage with Tehuti TN9210 10GBase-T Network Adapter

Please stop by Booth #957 in the Thunderbolt Community area, Intel Developer Forum San Francisco for the demonstration.

Key Features of Tehuti TN4010

The Tehuti TN4010 controller is an optimized 10GbE device designed for low-power, single-port applications required in application servers, high-end workstations and personal computers. This makes it ideal for enabling 1GbE to 10GbE migration in bandwidth-intensive workstation applications.

The TN4010 10GbE controller utilizes Tehuti’s hardware network acceleration technology, which offloads compute-intensive protocol processing tasks, such as TCP, UDP and IP checksum processing, from the host CPU. This allows the Thunderbolt 10GBase-T adapter to enable the deployment of less expensive and power-efficient CPUs as well as maximize the availability of CPU cycles for application processing.

  • 10 Gigabit performance utilizing 1W peak power consumption
  • Backward compatibility with 1000Base-T, 100Base-T networks
  • 16K Jumbo Frames
  • IP, TCP, UDP checksum offloading
  • IEEE 802.1Q Tagged VLAN
  • Reduced CPU utilization and improved throughput
