Is there any plan to support true 4K H264 encoding and decoding in the IMSDK Linux ?
For R3, the maximum supported resolution for H264 encode and decode is 4096x2304, which covers many of the most common 4k formats/aspect ratios. By "true 4k", do you mean 4k Ultra High Definition (4096x2560) or something higher?
The link Intel gave me a few days ago to download IMSDK for Linux Servers points to R2 (Version 4.0.1602356.62938). And in the Release Notes document, I can read that h264 decoder/encoder maximum supported resolution is 1920x1088.
I guess that I'll have to upgrade to R3 to encode/decode 4K (4096x2304 is fine). So.. How do I do that ?
I finally managed to download R3beta1. When does a stable release will be available for download ?
It should be available soon -- within a few days. Please watch for an announcement here when it is ready for download.
Media SDK 2013 R3 for Linux Servers is now available for download. For more info on new features see here.
