SANTA CLARA, Calif. Ittiam Systems, a leading provider of advanced video technology and solutions for the broadcast media industry, will showcase its i265 H.265/HEVC encoder for the Intel® Visual Compute Accelerator (Intel® VCA) at NAB 2016. Ittiam’s real time 4Kp60 HEVC encoder, one of the first in the industry, will be demonstrated at multiple locations during NAB 2016:

  • Ittiam booth SU14213 using Supermicro servers that feature Intel VCA
  • Intel booth SU621 using Advantech servers that feature Intel VCA
  • 2CRSI booth SU6115 using their custom server solutions that feature Intel VCA

The Intel® Visual Compute Accelerator integrates three Intel® Xeon® Processor E3 family with Intel® IrisTM Pro graphics components into a PCIe* card form factor that fits into Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family-based servers and provides highly distributed CPU and graphics computing capabilities. Ittiam’s i265 HEVC encoder is a highly scalable, super real time encoder that is designed to intelligently utilize the power and efficiency of the Intel VCA card. The combined solution delivers superior performance for live 4Kp60 AVC video as well as high-quality HD HEVC Main 10 video encoding and transcoding applications for data centers, service providers and broadcasters.

“The Intel® Visual Compute Accelerator (Intel® VCA) platform has enabled us to deliver a high quality, highly scalable solution not only for real time UHD/4K high frame rate solutions but also for faster than real time encoding applications”, said Dirk Peters, SVP of Sales at Ittiam. “Backed by a strong ecosystem of partners like Advantech, Supermicro and 2CRSI, the combined capabilities of the Intel VCA and Ittiam’s i265 encoder have raised the performance and ROI of media-centric servers to the next level.”

“We are working closely with software companies to empower customers to develop highly optimized solutions using the Intel Visual Compute Accelerator,” said Al Diaz, vice president of Intel’s Data Center Group and general manager of the Product Collaboration and Systems Division. “Utilizing high quality accelerated video encoding software, such as Ittiam’s encoder, with Intel VCA-based platforms enables solutions with outstanding TCO per channel for real-time 4K broadcast quality content.”
