Today’s fast pace 24hr a day information age demands content creators deliver news and events with high definition videos and images that are often captured using a variety of devices with differing formats. Delivering the rapidly changing image-based content quickly is challenging and requires systems capable of real-time streaming videos to devices that may support lower resolution for viewing requiring transcoding. In addition, much of the video content needs to be analyzed for value and applicability to audiences. Preforming real time image transcoding and image analysis can overwhelm todays data center systems and result in consumer dissatisfaction, therefore a video application acceleration is needed to allow data centers to keep pace with this fast pace world
Socionext has developed M820L hybrid codec solution that offers superior video transcoding, data extraction, data analysis, and encoding capabilities while preserving optimal image quality. The M820L is a PCIe-based low profile card composed of the company's flagship M30 (MB86M30) HEVC/AVC/MPEG-2 codec and high-performance, multi-core SC2A11 ARM processor. It can enhance existing systems’ encoding performance or extend system capabilities for new function and performance requirements.
The M820L comes with fast-speed data processing power including transcoding of compressed video data, abstraction of metadata by real time analysis and integration with the video data. Additionally, it can selectively capture and transmit AV meta data to the cloud for AI and deep learning, making it a suitable for applications that can benefit from such video analysis system include advanced surveillance camera, digital marketing, sports video analysis, and content management in video distribution services of applications.
