Dear Intel Media SDK community.

Intel® Media SDK 2013 for Linux Servers is an SDK for optimizing datacenter and embedded media applications for Linux operating systems to utilize Intel HD Graphics hardware acceleration capabilities.

Feature Overview:
* Supports Intel Xeon® E3-1285Lv2 and Intel Core™ Processor-based Platforms with Intel HD Graphics
* Encode, decode, and transcode for server-based streaming
* Supports Ubuntu* and SUSE* Linux Enterprise Operating Systems
* Supports H.264, MPEG-2, VC-1 formats

To sign up for the Beta program and for more details go to:  http://software.intel.com/en-us/vcsource/tools/media-sdk-linux

We are showcasing the features of the new SDK at the NABShow in Las Vegas this week. If you happen to be attending the conference, you are welcome stop by the Intel booth at South Hall - Lower Floor - SL9610, to learn more and meet the Intel Media SDK team.

Hi Mark,

I'll answer for Ryan. The SDK license is tied to the developer who will be using it. There are no Intel royalties attached to the license so you are free to develop any application or service you'd like.

However, as with any codec, there are codec license fees that needs to be considered. Depending on what kind of solution you're building you may have to pay codec IP royalties. This is out scope of the SDK and not controlled by Intel. To explore further you can contact an organization such as MPEG LA.

Regards,
Petter

Hi, do you have an ETA for the SDK with h264 interlaced encoding and multiple reference frames support ?

The version with these features included will be released by the end of 2013.

We've downloaded Media SDK for Linux Server. It looks like only 64-bit binaries are packed. Is there a 32-bit version?

Hi Misha,

This product supports only 64-bit platforms, most common for server usage.

Hi,

You mentioned in April that the Linux Beta version API matches the Windows SDK but certain features weren't included such as MPEG2 encode. Now that the Linux SDK has been released are there still features supported on Windows SDK that aren't available on Linux?

The following features are still only supported in Windows. If there is a strong need for them in Linux please let us know.  Your feedback is an important part of product planning.

  • Encoders/decoders: MJPEG 
  • VPP: Procamp (brightness, contrast, hue, saturation), sharpening, image stabilization 
  • Rate control: AVBR 

Another important difference if you are considering writing programs to run in both environments:  A display handle is only required if your application manages GPU memory surfaces for Windows, but all Linux Media SDK applications require a display handle.  More details.

Hello! We are very interested in the Beta Release program, and I wanted to know if we could still sign up. It appears the link to sign up may have changed: http://software.intel.com/en-us/vcsource/tools/media-sdk-linux

If not, is the latest Beta SDK 2013 available for request?

Regards,

Skyler

The free beta program is closed.  As you've seen on the website, Media SDK for Servers is now available for $499.  This includes access to beta releases as well.

Regards,

Jeff
