Video content is now the biggest trend companies need to bank on. And one important aspect associated with streaming video content is the broadcast quality. Consumer Video-on-Demand (VoD) traffic is set to nearly double by 2021.
Three new services and video formats such as Cloud DVR, Ultra-High Definition (UHD), High Dynamic Range (HDR), High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), and immersive video experiences have become mandatory attributes of leading-edge services and key differentiators in the competition for subscribers. Connected devices are becoming more capable, with 4K UHD now available on smartphones displays and cameras.
It is essential for operators to invest in video processing infrastructures that can provide advanced services, are inherently cost effective, and have a flexible architecture that supports changing service delivery requirements. The Beamr 5 HEVC software encoder and the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors provide the essential tools to meet these requirements.
This whitepaper discusses more about the features of the Beamr 5 HEVC software encoder.
