Key Features

STATE-OF-THE-ART HEVC SOFTWARE ENCODER
Based on Spin Digital’s advanced decision algorithms for fast encoding combined with a highly optimized implementation designed to scale to many CPU cores and fully utilize the latest SIMD media instructions.

HIGH-END REAL-TIME ENCODING
HEVC live encoding for next-generation formats including 4Kp120, 8Kp60, and 12Kp30 with compression efficiency comparable to best-in-class offline encoders.

PROFESSIONAL VIDEO
Support for distribution and contribution formats with 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 chroma sampling, and up to 12-bit.

PERCEPTION-OPTIMIZED ENCODING
Includes a novel quality optimization mode designed to increase the perceived quality of challenging video when compressed at distribution bitrates.

ADAPTIVE BIT RATE (ABR) LIVE STREAMING
From a single live source several versions of the content with different resolutions and bitrates can be encoded in real-time and streamed simultaneously for ABR applications over the Internet.

8K-to-8K LIVE TRANSCODING
Enables live transcoding of 8Kp60 HEVC contribution stream into 8Kp60 HEVC distribution formats.

SUPPORT FOR THE ARIB STANDARD (STD-B32)
Broadcasting of HEVC video in 8K resolution for the Japanese Super Hi-Vision format.

NEXT GENERATION AUDIO (NGA)
Support for the MPEG-H Audio format enabling immersive and personalized audio experiences for broadcast and new media services.

DESIGNED FOR LIVE APPLICATIONS
Provides key features for live workflows in broadcasting and Internet streaming, including: real-time operation mode, HRD model compliance, broadcast-level CBR control, and constrained VBR control.

INTEGRATED I/O MODULES
Complete live encoding solution with input capture based on SDI interface and HEVC TSoIP, and simultaneous output delivery for broadcast (UDP, RTP, SRT, RIST, Zixi) and Internet (HLS) streaming.

CLOUD STREAMING SUPPORT
Delivers TSoIP streams compatible with AWS MediaConnect, and HLS streams over AWS S3, AWS Elemental MediaStore, and CloudFront.

LOW-LATENCY
Specially optimized to guarantee minimal latencies in both high-efficiency (long GOP) and low-delay (shot GOP) operation modes.

COST-EFFECTIVE
Software solution based on standard server platforms that are easy to deploy and scale.

Compression and Performance for 4K

 

Bitrate versus encoding speed

Comparison metric: Encoding speed at the same quality (bitrate that produces a VMAF score of 95).

 

Encoders:

  • Spin Enc Live v1.2 – HEVC, VVC (under development) – preset: fast
  • x264 r3075 – presets: slower, medium
  • x265 v3.5 – presets: slower, medium, ultrafast
  • SVT-HEVC v1.5.1 – presets: 3, 5, 7
  • SVT-AV1 v1.0.0 – presets: 6, 8, 10, 12
  • VVenC v1.3.1 – presets: fast, faster

Encoding settings:

  • Tuned for live content distribution: CBR, long GOP, 1-s buffer, 1-s intra period, long GOP
  • 4K-UHD distribution format: 3840×2160 pixels, 4:2:0, 10-bit, HDR

Encoding system:

  • CPU: 2x Intel Xeon Platinum 8368 (2x 38 cores)
  • Memory: 128 GB (16x 8GB, DDR4-3200)

 

Spin Enc Live achieves higher compression efficiency than other encoders under real-time conditions, and provides the highest encoding performance enabling 4K HFR (120 fps) and 8Kp60 applications.
