SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 3, 2019 ---Socionext America Inc., a leading provider of SoC-based solutions for a wide range of advanced video applications, will start shipping its new “X500E”, an HEVC/H.265 encoder unit powered by the company’s high-performance codec technology. The X500E, which enables IP live streaming of broadcast-quality UHD video, will be available for worldwide distribution in late July.
The X500E has been developed jointly with XVTEC Ltd. of Israel, and is equipped with Socionext’s high-performance codec IC, the SC2M50, integrated into a compact case. The unit is designed to simplify the development of various video content distribution environments.

The company also expects the X500E to be utilized for emerging applications such as high-definition video capture from surveillance camera and transmission of medical video images.
