Telestream, a provider of video transcoding and workflow solutions, announced the contribution of OpenCL performance improvements for pre-integration review to the x264 project. This follows Telestream’s recent announcement of the integration of x264 across its file-based transcoding product lines.
The enhancements developed by Telestream provide improved performance on AMD GPUs, including the Tahiti architecture to reduce x264 processing time. The development was completed in partnership with MulticoreWare Inc., a software solutions leader that develops highly optimized heterogeneous multicore parallel programming across platforms focusing on OpenCL programming.
Telestream products utilizing x264 currently include Episode and Vantage. Episode is an all-in-one, multiformat encoding application designed for post production and new media workflows. It’s the only cross-platform, multiformat software encoder on the market that scales from a desktop to a workgroup cluster. Vantage server-based software products combine media capture, transcoding, clip management, analysis, QC, and metadata processing into one future-proof video workflow design and automation framework. Vantage integrates with all the major broadcast servers, edit systems, streaming servers, cable VOD servers, SANs and virtually any network digital device in a facility to improve video operations—without disrupting video operations.
