ITTIAM & KONTRON REFERENCE SOLUTION: HIGH DENSITY HEVC 4K 10-BIT HDR ENCODING
With 4K / UHD fast becoming a standard feature among televisions and second screen
devices, the amount of bandwidth and capacity required to support 4K and UHD workflows remains high. As business models and video standards change, operators find it increasingly difficult to differentiate themselves from competitors or upgrade their existing systems.
In response to demanding 4K and UHD workflows, Kontron has developed an integrated solution with partner Ittiam that is power efficient, easily reconfigurable and supplies all the necessary throughput and density to maximize an operator’s revenue per stream of high quality video.
This case study describes how Ittiam HEVC software encoder on a Kontron SYMKLOUD MS2910 Converged Platform featuring INTEL® Iris™ Pro GPU acceleration, enables service providers to implement cost effective architectures for transcoding UHD / 4K HDR video content.
