Build professional-grade media applications for client, mobile, and embedded IoT environments.


  • Enable real-time, hardware-accelerated video encoding, decoding, and processing with the full integration of Intel® Quick Sync Video. Run video and image processing with outstanding performance and high visual quality completely on the GPU while using the CPU for other tasks.
  • Decode and encode video using HEVC, AVC, MPEG-2, VP9, VC-1, MVC, and JPEG.
  • Support for multiple widely used video preprocessing filters:
    • Color conversion
    • Deinterlace
    • Denoise
    • Resize
    • Rotate
    • Crop
    • Composition and alpha blending
    • Frame-rate conversion
    • Video signal information
    • Mirroring (Microsoft Windows* only)

For the Windows version:

  • HEVC codec components. Software- and GPU-accelerated HEVC (H.265).
  • Video Quality Caliper analysis tool performs sequence-level inspection of encoded or decoded video streams, and provides objective metrics such as PSNR and SSIM, all through an interactive interface.
  • RAW video and image processing. Quickly convert RAW camera output to display-compatible formats. Apply color adjustment and effect filters in real time for visually stunning media.
  • Audio decode and encode. Deliver fast, quality audio playback and encode for AAC, MPEG-1, and MPEG-2.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on microprocessors from Intel. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. Consult other information and performance tests while evaluating potential purchases, including performance when combined with other products. For more information, see Performance Benchmark Test Disclosure. Source: Intel measurements, as of June 2017.
