NGCodec Demonstrates Live 1080p ABR Video Encoding at 1Mbps

  • Exhibiting at IBC 2018 in Amsterdam on the Ontario, Canada Booth, Hall #2.A41

  • Demonstrating both H.265/HEVC and VP9 live adaptive bitrate (ABR) video encoding

  • HEVC is also being shown at the Advantec booth Hall #11.C32 on the VEGA-4000

  • NGCodec RealityCodec is already powering Hyperscale infrastructures around the world

  • New hardware Eval Kit available, with 4K HDMI and SDI capture

Efficient video encoding promises to reduce bandwidth requirements and improve video quality for online video. At IBC 2018, NGCodec is demonstrating breakthrough performance on Adaptive Bit Rate encoding for H.265/HEVC and VP9 codecs. The demonstration is powered by RealityCodec, an FPGA based solution for video encoding with the best possible performance per watt and scalability for broadcast-quality 4K UHD video. For customers seeking public cloud solutions, RealityCodec is available today in the Amazon EC2 F1 FPGA-based cloud. For customers seeking on prem the company has announced a Hardware Evaluation Kit for evaluating performance in real-world streaming workflows.

“NGCodec delivers the lowest bitrate for a given visual quality for live VP9 and HEVC with full support for adaptive bitrate encoding,” said Oliver Gunasekara, CEO and Founder, NGCodec. “Ultimately the bitrate reduction of around 30% over H.264 can save millions of dollars in CDN delivery costs and significantly improve the user experience.”

Emerging HEVC and H.265/HEVC solutions can now be implemented for hyperscale video encoding. NGCodec has pioneered low latency video encoding on programmable FPGA processors. In the public cloud, a single Amazon F1 instance powered by NGCodec delivers significant bit rate reduction over an C5 instances running open source encoders. In the private cloud, NGCodec provides the lowest TCO for broadcast-quality live video streaming.
