Chip Shot: Intel® Media SDK for Servers Now Supports Linux and Windows

Intel today announced that Intel® Media SDK 2013 for Servers now supports both Linux and Windows server operating systems. The SDK helps enable servers to deliver up to 12x the amount of simultaneous HD video streams over traditional software-only solutions. The SDK supports servers from major manufacturers running 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors and the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family (formerly codenamed “Haswell”) with Intel® Iris™ Pro and Intel® HD Graphics. It helps reduce total cost of ownership while enabling high-quality hardware acceleration for video. The SDK also offers better server density and improved energy efficiency for real-time streaming, teleconferencing and video analytics. More information about developer licenses are available at
