AOMedia Software Implementation Working Group to Bring AV1 to More Video Platforms

nuc frost entertainment group 5 aAlliance for Open Media (AOMedia) has announced the formation of the AOMedia Software Implementation Working Group (SIWG). SIWG will use the open-source scalable video technology for the AV1 (SVT-AV1) encoder that Intel has developed in collaboration with AOMedia member Netflix, to create production-ready AV1 encoder implementations. As mobile and livestreaming become more prevalent, these implementations will enable and deliver excellent video compression across a wide variety of video applications.

Optimized for video encoding on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, SVT-AV1 uniquely enables developers to scale performance levels when more processor cores or for higher resolutions. This encoding performance can help developers achieve specific quality and latency requirements for their video on demand (VOD) or livestreaming applications, and efficiently scale across their cloud infrastructure.

“AV1 encoders are part of the driving force for accelerating the deployment of live and on-demand streaming video experiences. We have developed SVT-AV1, in collaboration with Netflix, with the goal of creating an AV1 encoder that speeds innovation while driving adoption in the open-source community. With SVT-AV1 being adopted as part of AOMedia’s new encoder initiative, we look forward to collaborating with our fellow AOMedia members to bring further improvements to the internet, technology and video industries that are adopting AV1,” said Zach Hamm, AOMedia chairman and senior director of Visual Computing Strategy and Business Development at Intel.
