Analyze, Debug and Improve Video Codecs, Ensure Encoder Compliance

Intel® Video Pro Analyzer is a comprehensive suite of advanced video analysis software tools for emerging HEVC, VP9 codecs, as well as widely-adopted AVC and MPEG-2 video coding standards. It allows deep analysis of the complete encode/decode process; debug, compliance and error testing of encoders/decoders; robust statistics and reports to help find and fix issues faster, and more. When targeting 4K or HD wireless display, broadcast to home screen or mobile device, or web streaming solutions and applications, using Intel® VPA to develop, improve quality, and validate video products saves time and costs.

Supports Next-Gen Codecs and Standards

Media Formats Supported

Video Codecs

  • HEVC: All major profiles, including SHVC & Multiview
  • VP9: All major profiles
  • MPEG-2
  • AVC: All major profiles up to 4:4:4

Container formats

  • MPEG-2 TS, MP4, MKV, MMT and MPEG-DASH containers

Once a bitstream is loaded, users can inspect each step of the decode/encode process visually and numerically, and explore the structure of the coded image to help improve and debug a particular encoder or decoder. Intel VPA can process streams of significant size smoothly, manage broken/non-compliant streams, and report parsing issues. (See Details for more.)

What’s New in Intel VPA 2017: Codec Developers Can Improve Video Quality Faster

The 2017 release brings efficiency enhancements

  • Performance & UI - HEVC file indexing provides quick performance and responsiveness with video files loading, and while switching between video frames; AVC playback was optimized.
  • MPEG-2 error resilience improvements (support was already available for HEVC and AVC).
  • Multiple UI enhancements help developers be more productive and make the tool easier to use, such as filtering of error messages, new settings to save fixes, improved picture caching, and more.

Prior releases delivered

  • Scalable HEVC (SHVC) support provides the ability to adjust resolutions and frame rates based on available network bandwidth to help ensure more reliable viewing experiences
  • HEVC Multiview (MV-HEVC) extensions deliver efficient encoding of video capture from multiple cameras on the same timeline. This helps video solution providers optimize encoder visual quality and transcoding compression efficiency, and validate encoder/decoder compliance
  • AVC 10-bit support to enable HDR content delivery
  • Significant Performance Improvements and Reduced Memory Usage (2016 R4) Faster performance by 1.7x for AVC/47x for MPEG-2; and memory usage reduction by 11% for AVC and VP9
