NAB 2017: Spin Digital presented an 8K demo at Intel booth

A software media player capable of reproducing ultra-high quality 8Kp60 video was demonstrated by Spin Digital at Intel booth during NAB 2017.

The media player is based on a software HEVC/H.265 video decoder by Spin Digital that runs entirely on an Intel Xeon CPU.

Spin Digital’s HEVC decoder software has been extensively optimized for Intel CPUs in order to achieve an unparalleled level of performance. The software is able to play 8K video at 60 fps with 4:4:4 10-bit format in real-time, running on a standard PC.

High quality 8K video content from NHK Media Technology (NHK MT) and Poznan Supercomputing Center (PSNC) was presented on an 8K UHD surface of almost 120 inches made with four 58-inch 4K TVs in a 2×2 setup.
