SPIN ENC LIVE

HEVC/H.265 real-time software encoder optimized for high-end live applications in broadcast and Internet streaming.

A state-of-the-art HEVC/H.265 software encoder that provides high compression and high quality combined with high processing efficiency oriented towards live applications.

With a flexible and cutting-edge CPU design the encoder is ready for next-generation applications including live 4K internet streaming, 8K broadcasting, and 12K immersive live experiences.

Spin Enc Live is more than an optimized HEVC encoder, it is a complete solution for live applications with support for input capture and output streaming.

 

HEVC real-time encoder

Key Features

STATE-OF-THE-ART HEVC 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.

READY FOR 8K
Enables service providers to deliver broadcast-grade 8K live video over current networks with bit rates at as low as 48 Mbps.

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

DESIGNED FOR LIVE APPLICATIONS
Provides key features for live workflows including: real-time operation mode, HRD model compliance, and  broadcast-level rate control.

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

INTEGRATED I/O MODULES
Enabling complete live encoding solutions with input capture based on SDI, and simultaneous output delivery for broadcast (TSoIP) and Internet (HLS) streaming.

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

Compression and Performance for 8K

 

Rate-distortion comparison of HEVC encoders for 8K

 

Comparison metrics:

  • Bitrate increase for the same quality (PSNR) of HEVC encoders referred to Spin Enc Live
  • Encoding speed for 8K video on a 112-core server

HEVC encoders:

  • Spin Enc Live – version: 1.0 – preset: fast
  • x265 – version: 3.4 – presets: medium, ultrafast
  • SVT-HEVC – version: 1.5.0 – presets: 3, 11
  • Nvidia NVENC – GeForce RTX 2060 – presets: slow, fast

Encoding settings:

  • Tuned for live content distribution: CBR, long GOP, 1-s intra period
  • Seven 8K (7680×4320, 4:2:0 10-bit) videos

 

Spin Enc Live produces similar quality to offline encoders at significantly higher encoding speed, and higher quality than real-time software and hardware-accelerated encoders.
