Mobile Viewpoint has announced that its new bonding transmitter delivers HEVC (H.265) HDR video, running on the latest sixth-generation Intel processors using Intel Media Server Studio Professional Edition to optimise HEVC compression and quality.
Intel’s graphics-accelerated codec enabled Mobile Viewpoint to develop a hardware platform that combines low power hardware-accelerated encoding and transmission of broadcast-quality video.
The new HEVC enabled software will be used in the Wireless Multiplex Terminal (WMT) Agile HDR back of the camera solutions and in its 19-inch FLEX IO encoding and O2 decoding products.
Mobile Viewpoint’s dedicated IP encoding and decoding appliances use Intel Quick Sync Video technology to deliver HDR H.265 encoded video using its award-winning bonding technology, which was launched earlier this year.
Working with Intel’s Media Server Studio tech experts allowed Mobile Viewpoint to test and develop new encoding appliances at an early stage, so that it could create higher resolution and quality video encoding.
After optimising with Media Server Studio, Mobile Viewpoint saw a power savings of more than 50 per cent and quality improvements of between 25 per cent and 40 per cent. For the mobile solutions especially, this is a huge benefit because it saves on mobile data and dramatically extends battery life.
Mobile Viewpoint’s IP technology enables broadcasters to go live from almost every corner of the world within seconds – using less bandwidth. The deployment of IP transmission solutions by major broadcasters has already shown that this technology is now accepted as the major tool for cost-effective and fast news gathering.
“Intel processors with hardware HEVC encoding and sophisticated media processing software are helping to power Mobile Viewpoint’s live, high-resolution, reliable broadcasting solution so the world can stay better informed of fast-changing news and events on-the-go,” stated Jeff McVeigh, Intel vice president and visual computing products general manager.
Mobile Viewpoint managing director Michel Bais added, “The co-operation with Intel opens up a new platform for low power and high quality video encoding appliances using the Intel Media Server Studio Professional Edition with the latest Linux distributions. This in combination with support and the availability of a complete range of processors makes Intel our key encoding partner.”
