Improve encoding efficiency and video quality with Adaptive LTR

Introduction

In media application, one important feature of the encoder is to lower the bitrate while keeping the high video quality. Intel® Media SDK has been working hard on improving this capability based on our hardware.

Media SDK introduces the Adaptive Long Term Reference (LTR) in the 2018R1 Windows release, an intelligent encoding feature which significantly improves compression efficiency and video quality for video conferences, surveillance and certain graphics/game streaming applications.

  • An operation guide to build and debug open source Media SDK software stack

    The Goal

    Intel started the Media SDK + associated Linux graphics stack/driver open source project in 2017. Now developers can build the full set of the media software components to run Intel® Media SDK completely from open source repositories with the steps described in this article. Developers can run and debug their media applications with source access to the full stack.
