Challenges

Anevia* is impacted by the cost of hardware infrastructure and quality of video being delivered. As such, any improvement in performance translates to being able to transcode:

(1) More video channels in parallel at the same quality or
(2) Same number of video channels at lower bit rate, which saves costs. Hence customer is always seeking to get the best possible performance out of their hardware.

Solution
With 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Anevia* is able to achieve up to 22%1 2 3 more live HD services compared to previous generation, due to improved memory bandwidth and the new Vector Neural Network Instructions. These new instructions helped more HEVC services to be transcoded, than without.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
