Eolementhe©, an eco-designed solution, compliant with the « Greenconcept » program

Eolementhe©, an eco-designed solution, compliant with the « Greenconcept » program

The digital transition of the economy gives rise to a deep change. It raises several questions since our information systems generate negative impacts on nature (resources depletion, consumption of energy, greenhouse gas…).

As Videomenthe has been fully aware of these environmental issues since several years, the company chose to integrate the “Greenconcept” program, driven by the CCI Occitanie and financed by Ademe agency and Occitanie Region.
The goal was to evaluate the results of the eco-design strategy that has been set up to create Eolementhe©, platform for processing and delivering media files, and identify new ways of reducing its environmental impacts.

The final report shows that all the actions that Videomenthe has been set up since several years give today significant results on environmental impacts. The mutualization of cloud-based servers allowed a reduction from 36 to 67% according to the KPIs (-47% on greenhouse gas emissions for example).
An analysis of the lifecycle has been done for the Eolementhe© solution (conformity of the file and delivery of a 26 minutes program), and new ways of actions have been found as a result.

Effectively, to move forward in this « Green » attitude, Videomenthe is working on the possibility to change the encoding proxy file format from H264 to H265.

The end-users of our solutions can also act on a daily basis, by simple actions, for example:
- Turn off their screen while a file is being uploaded,
- Regularly empty the trash to avoid useless use of IT resources,
- Check the conformity of each file before uploading it to reduce space wasting and useless data transfer
- Use the « stop and go » feature of Eolementhe©, which allows to add technical and editorial verification steps, hence avoiding useless files go back-and-forth
Videomenthe will provide the clients a good practices guidance, to go further in this “green” action.
To combine ergonomic, operational performance and reduction of our environmental footprint is a daily challenge that has to be taken up together, for a responsible digital economy!

The final report shows that all the actions that Videomenthe has been set up since several years give today significant results on environmental impacts. The migration of physical servers on a cloud-based infrastructure allowed a reduction from 36 to 67% according to the KPIs (-47% on greenhouse gas emissions for example).
