HIGH PERFORMANCE & EFFICIENT VIDEO CODECS

x266 VVC Encoder

Leading Next-Gen Video Technologies with development of open source x266(VVC) encoding and x266 consortium.

x266 Versatile Video Coding (VVC) Encoder is a successor to the gold standard x265 HEVC encoder. VVC was developed with the targeted goal of achieving twice the coding efficiency of well-known HEVC (Rec. ITU-T H.265 | ISO/IEC 23008-2) standard. x266 will be able to encode video with High Dynamic Range and Wide Color Gamut in addition to the Standard Dynamic Range video. MulticoreWare has formed Open Source VVC consortium with various Tier-1 companies to develop an open source code x266 for VVC encoding.

Application areas of x266 will include encoding High Definition (HD) and Ultra High Definition (UHD- 4K and 8K) video for TV broadcasters, live and web based streaming services, OTT, VOD, Adaptive Bit Rate(ABR) streaming services, video teleconferencing, video games, eSports, cloud gaming etc.

x265 HEVC Encoder

x265 is based on the x264 codec (widely recognized as the highest quality H.264 codec implementation), and the command-line syntax and feature set are similar. x265 is by far the most widely used HEVC (H.265) encoder in the world, powering the H.265 encoding capabilities of many leading open source applications including FFMPEG and VLC.

Widespread usage, combined with the collaborative open source development model helped create a robust implementation compared to proprietary H.265 encoders.

Ultraziq Encoding Library

UHD Kit

Commercial AVC, HEVC and AV1 encoding library

Ultraziq is a proprietary software video encoding library targeted at optimizing video quality and turn-around time when encoding video for OTT and live streaming. As building blocks, Ultraziq deploys the open-source encoders x264, x265 and SVT-AV1 to encode incoming uncompressed video in accordance with AVC (H.264), HEVC (H.265) and AV1 specifications. On top of these best-in-class encoders, MulticoreWare deploys its expertise, enterprise, and efficiency in high-performance and GPU computing and vast knowledge of the video domain into Ultraziq to optimize video encoding, which forms the core of the video consumption experience.

With these tools, Ultraziq enables high effective utilization of typical servers used for video encoding by ensuring maximum throughput with minimal work duplication. This results in significant savings to encoder vendors who may use Ultraziq in their commercial video pipelines for OTT and live streaming.

Some features include:

  • Optimized encoding for ABR streaming
  • Content adaptive live encoding
  • GPU accelerated HEVC encoding
  • Optimized capped VBR encoding in one pass

Our recent improvements include:

Machine Learning based optimizations for Ultraziq – Leverage CNN for improving the speed of encoding and observed 15% improvement.

UHDcode HEVC Decoder

UHD Code

UHDcode is a high performance HEVC decoder, supporting the full HEVC / H.265 specifications, including all levels and profiles. UHDcode is available for x86 PCs and servers, ARM mobile devices and embedded devices, Sony Playstation 3 and XBOX 360. UHDcode supports all transcoding and HEVC player applications, with a fully featured developer API to enable decoding functions in your own software package. UHDcode uses a highly parallel processing architecture, and is GPU accelerated with OpenCL.

UHDcode is available as part of x265 HEVC Upgrade, which allows anyone with a 64-bit Windows PC to easily convert MP4 video files to HEVC, and play these files with Windows Media Player!

Accelerated VP9 Decoding

VP9 Codec

VP9 is an open and royalty-free video coding format developed by Google. VP9 codec was developed with the intention of reducing bit rate by 50% compared to VP8, while having the same video quality. The VP9 video codec is supported on Mozilla, and Google’s Chrome browser.

MulticoreWare accelerated VP9 decoding solutions on a high-end Android mobile device by various performance optimization methods, including rendering script optimization for inter & intra predication and WPP opt for loop filter on CPU.

These optimizations are made available to all developers through the WebM open source project. The accelerated VP9 decoder supports playback of high quality 1080P YouTube video at 30 frames per second, providing a power efficient solution for mobile devices, tablets, smart TVs etc.
