Create, edit, and share video in a flash
Intel® Quick Sync Video makes fast work of creating, editing, synchronizing, and sharing your videos–at home and online– without the expense of additional hardware.
What is Intel® Quick Sync Video?
Intel® Quick Sync Video, built right into 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors, is breakthrough hardware acceleration that lets you complete in minutes what used to take hours. Create DVDs or Blu-ray* discs, edit videos, convert video files for your portable media player, and convert videos for upload to your favorite social networking sites–all in a flash.
PCs with Intel® Quick Sync Video can convert HD video content for a handheld device twice as fast as PCs based on previous generation Intel® Core™ processors,1 Instead of waiting for your video, your video is waiting for you.
Video is mainstream
PC users now create and consume more video content than ever,2 however, working with video content and converting it for different uses can be time-consuming. Intel Quick Sync Video reduces that wait time significantly.

How it works
Video content is typically compressed and encoded into a specific format when it is stored on hard drives, DVDs, camcorders, cell phones, or broadcast media. When you want to play that content, burn it onto a DVD or Blu-ray disc, or copy it to your phone, it must first be decoded and then re-encoded in a new format, a resource- and time-intensive process. Intel Quick Sync Video accelerates decoding and encoding for a significantly faster conversion time, while also enabling the processor to complete other tasks, improving overall PC performance.
