Vanguard Software Solutions (VSS),founded in 1995 and a leader in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC CODEC technology,announces the world’s first demonstration of a real-time HEVC (H.265) software encoder running at full HD resolution of 1080 progressive scan at 30fps (1080p30). The VSS HEVC encoder is based on the Draft International Standard approved by the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC) in July 2012. To achieve real-time performance at full HD resolution, VSS was able to use a single Intel Xeon processor.
The VSS encoder is optimized for real-time performance on PC platforms, with built-in parallelization for cloud scalability. The encoder demonstrates improvements in quality and bitrate for video distribution and communication markets over current implementations based on H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, achieving lower bitrates than H.264/MPEG-4 AVC while maintaining similar quality levels.
“VSS is proud to be the first company to demonstrate a pure x86 software encoder implementation of the new HEVC (H.265) video compression International Draft Standard. We have a track record of high-quality software encoders, and we continue to devote our extensive know-how towards advanced encoding technology with this important milestone,” said Irena Terterov, CEO and Founder of VSS. “The ability to encode at 1080p30 in real time shows the engineering capability of our company to create optimized, high-performance products.”
The HEVC software SDK is expected to be available later this year to select customers. VSS is also developing HEVC hardware codecs for FPGA and ASIC implementations.
