High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is the latest video compression standard that promises dramatic improvement in compression ratio and picture quality as compared to the H.264 standard.
“Harmonic has been using Interra’s Vega H264 and MPEG suite of products in its R&D and QA groups for a long time. We have come to rely on Vega products for their consistent, accurate and in-depth analysis for a variety of encoded media. Interra’s Vega HEVC analyzer will enable us to quickly verify standards compliance and deliver high quality HEVC video encoders to our customers,” said Paul Haskell, Vice President, Video & Algorithm Technology at Harmonic.
Vega HEVC is the most in-depth analyzer for HEVC video today. Vega HEVC offers complete parsing and decoding of HEVC video. Its features include frame by frame navigation, analytical graphs, H.264 and HEVC encoding comparison, powerful reporting, error messages at all structural levels, and utilities for buffer analysis. Vega HEVC leverages industry-proven Interra technologies and multi-core processing to deliver efficient, high-performance analysis.
“Interra Systems has established itself as a global leader in the domain of compressed media analyzers. Interra has always been the first to provide sophisticated and feature rich analyzers for the latest Audio-video standards used in the DTV industry. Vega HEVC Analyzer will enable our customers, involved in creating and distributing HEVC video, to have a powerful debug environment to deliver standards compliant HEVC products and services. As we work with early adopters of HEVC, this endorsement by Harmonic is extremely significant for us,” said Anupama Anantharaman, Director, Business Development & Marketing, at Interra Systems.
