Ittiam Systems, a leading technology provider to the broadcast and media industry, announced the availability of its i265 H.265/HEVC Encoder for the new Intel Visual Compute Accelerator (Intel VCA) platform. The recently announced Intel Visual Compute Accelerator is a PCIe based media processing card with 3 Intel Xeon E3 series processors, designed to accelerate high-end media transcoding in a standard Intel Xeon E5 series processor based server. Intel VCA offers a lower total cost of ownership, lower power requirement and higher density compared to other solutions for Data Centers, Broadcasters and Distribution Networks. Ittiam’s multiprocessor implementation of its i265 H.265/HEVC Encoder for Intel VCA, an industry first, leverages the integrated Intel IrisTM Pro graphics capabilities and interconnects on the Intel VCA card to enable real time 4K60 broadcast quality encoding in 1RU servers. This also delivers significant performance scaling for offline high quality encoding and dense transcoding applications. Ittiam’s i265 H.265/HEVC Encoder for Intel VCA leverages Ittiam’s deep expertise in video algorithms and graphics acceleration. i265 for Intel VCA is available now as a codec SDK for system developers and will be available as part of Ittiam’s upcoming Media Engine transcoding system.
