Intel Media Server Studio supports the following platforms with integrated graphics:
- Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v4 with C226 chipset
- Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 and E3-1500 v5 with C236 chipset
- 5th generation Intel Core processors
- 6th generation Intel Core processors
Additionally, for Intel Xeon processor E5 v4 and v5, support of software-only (CPU) HEVC decode and encode, select video preprocessing (CSC, scaling, DI), and virtualization (KVM*, Xen*) is available.
Current Customers Note: If you are using older generations of Intel® platforms than listed above, use Intel Media Server Studio 2016 (see the release notes for technical specifications).
- CentOS* 7.4
- Other Linux distributions through a generic operating system model (Intel Media Server Studio generally works on these operating systems, however support is only provided for Linux Gold distributions)
Linux Kernel Supported Distributions
CentOS is the preferred operating system. Versions and kernels supported vary based on the release. Review the release notes to find the correct kernel for the release you are using.

Intel VTune Amplifier
Intel® Collaboration Suite for WebRTC – Create high-performance, reliable, and scalable real-time communication solutions with server and client tools to deliver RTC experiences with video conferencing capabilities.
This multithreaded CPU encoder uses the massive power of graphics processors in 5th and 6th generation Intel processors to deliver fast media processing with high-quality imagery and low latency in live and OTT streaming. Intel Media Server Studio users can now transcode JPEG2000 contained in IMF, AS02, or MXF OP1a files to distribution formats like H.264 and HEVC, and enable software-defined processes of IP video streams in broadcast applications. Its popular, efficient wavelet compression technology (supporting 4K or 8K Ultra HD resolutions) uses special parallel processing design for video encoding and decoding. Read More
This enables splitting of MP4, MPEG-2 transport and program streams into video and audio streams in applications based on Intel Media Server Studio. The demultiplexer recognizes the following formats: H.265 (HEVC), H.264 (AVC), MPEG-4, MPEG-1/2, VC-1 video and AAC, HE-AAC, MPEG-1/2, Dolby* AC-3, AMR, and PCM audio.
C++ and OpenCL 1.2 (and above)
