Intel Partners Netflix to Deliver AV1 Codec for Visual Workloads



Intel and Netflix announced a new high-performance video codec that is available as open source and royalty-free to content creators, developers and service providers at The National Association of Broadcasters Show (NAB Show). Scalable Video Technology for AV1 (SVT-AV1) offers performance and scalability in video processing.

SVT-AV1 is a software-based scalable codec offering the best tradeoffs between performance, latency and visual quality when working with visual cloud workloads

“The SVT-AV1 codec offers both high performance and efficiency, and compared to today’s most popular codec (H.264 AVC), SVT-AV1 can help service providers save up to half their bandwidth, delivering leading-edge user experiences that can be quickly and cost-effectively delivered at a global scale. This codec makes it possible for services ranging from video on demand to live broadcast of 4Kp60/10-bit content on Intel Xeon Scalable processors, including the recently launched 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor,” explained Lynn Comp, vice president of the Network Platforms Group and general manager of the Visual Cloud Division, Intel

 “The SVT-AV1 collaboration with Intel brings an alternative AV1 solution to the open-source community, enabling more rapid AV1 algorithm development and spurring innovation for next-generation video-compression technology,” said David Ronca, director of Encoding Technologies, Netflix.

Intel will demonstrate cloud graphics and immersive media pipelines in development at NAB. Additional reference pipelines will be released on a quarterly basis.
