SoftLab-NSK develops complete TV broadcast automation solutions that work with the 4K format and HEVC compression and include functionality for video encoding. When the company wanted to expand its flagship Forward T* line of playout servers, it needed the most efficient solution for video transcoding. After a through study, it chose technologies from Intel that support decoding, processing, encoding, and broadcasting 4K HEVC video from the output of the playout server:

  • Intel® Quick Sync Video, which uses the dedicated media processing capabilities of Intel® Graphics Technology for fast decoding and encoding, enabling the processor to complete other tasks and improving system responsiveness.
  • Intel® Media SDK, part of Intel® Media Server Studio. This cross-platform API is for developing media applications, on Windows* and embedded Linux*, for encoding Ultra HD video
