Higher Performance with New Optimizations

A new version of the HEVC decoder and media player has been optimized for the latest Intel processors. This optimization results in a very high performance that allows reducing the hardware costs for 8K applications or scale-up the maximum resolution. 8K with 120 fps is now possible in a single socket system and 8Kp60 in compact desktop systems. Additionally, dual-socket performance has also been optimized. Powerful workstations with Spin Digitals’ technology can drive the highest performance such as multi-8K decoders, or resolutions beyond 8K (12K, 16K) for videowalls and VR.

A demo of the 8K-3DCG movie content “Angry Waves – Onami (High Wave)” and “Menami (Low Wave)” inspired by Hokusai Katsushika pictures and supported by Triviaframe artist will be shown.

Cloud Encoding and Streaming

Spin Digitals’ encoder and media player have been tested in cloud environments for efficient transcoding using cloud computing instances. A demonstration of 8K streaming using HLS will be presented.
