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. 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 media accelerator PCIe card 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.
Introducing the 8K Video Encoding Accelerator "M820L-8K"
The "M820L-8K" video encoding accelerator enables high quality and high speed encoding of 8K resolution video contents. It is suitable for 8K post production system and greatly improves 8K production efficiency.
