With Mobile Viewpoint’s WMT AGILE HDR Technology & Intel® Media Server Studio Get Fast, Efficient HEVC Video Encoding
Mobile Viewpoint announces that its new bonding transmitter delivers HEVC (H.265) HDR video running on the latest 6th generation Intel® processors and through using Intel® Media Server Studio Professional Editionto optimize HEVC compression and quality. And for broadcast-quality video, Intel’s graphics-accelerated codec enabled Mobile Viewpoint to develop a hardware platform that combines low power hardware-accelerated encoding and transmission. The new HEVC enabled software will be used in Mobile Viewpoint's Wireless Multiplex Terminal (WMT) AGILE high-dynamic range (HDR) back of the camera solutions and in its 19-inch FLEX IO encoding and O2 decoding products.
Mobile Viewpoint’s dedicated IP encoding and decoding appliances use Intel® Quick Sync Video to deliver HDR H.265 encoded video using its award-winning bonding technology, which was launched earlier this year. Working with Intel’s Media Server Studio tech experts allowed Mobile Viewpoint to test and develop new encoding appliances at an early stage, so that it could innovate higher resolution and quality video encoding running on Intel processors to help meet the high quality demands of the broadcast industry.
Power Savings + Quality Improvements
After optimizing with Media Server Studio, Mobile Viewpoint saw a power savings of more than 50% and quality improvements of between 25% -40%. For mobile solutions especially, this is a huge benefit because it saves on mobile data and dramatically extends battery life.
Mobile Viewpoint Managing Director Michel Bais says, “The cooperation with Intel opens up a new platform for low power and high quality video encoding appliances using the Intel Media Server Studio Professional Edition with the latest Linux* distributions. This in combination with support and the availability of a complete range of processors makes Intel our key encoding partner.”
“Intel® processors with hardware HEVC encoding and sophisticated media processing software are helping to power Mobile Viewpoint’s live, high-resolution, reliable broadcasting solution so the world can stay better informed of fast-changing news and events on-the-go,” states Jeff McVeigh, Intel Software and Services Group vice president and Visual Computing Products general manager.
Broadcasting Live from Every Corner of the World
Mobile Viewpoint’s IP technology enables broadcasters to go live from almost every corner of the world within seconds - using less bandwidth. The deployment of IP transmission solutions by major broadcasters has already shown that this technology is now widely accepted as the major tool for cost-effective and fast news gathering.
Ian Brash, technical manager of Sky Sports News says,“Extensive testing of all the major brands over 30 months showed that the Mobile Viewpoint range best matched our news gathering requirements. Their willingness and ability to write custom software enhances our user experience and matches our unique conditions. This is technology whose time has come.”
