I'm looking into integrating Intel Media SDK into our solutions and the supported platforms are unclear to me. The client edition is said to be compatible with Win7/8 on >=2nd generation Core platforms. Now, the server edition is said to be compatible with Win Server 2012 and Linux on a number of Xeon platforms.
Does that really mean the supported platforms of the two editions are mutually exclusive? Of course we would like to have the broadest support possible.
I'm interested in this too. I need linux support which mandates the Media SDK for Servers however it's not clear whether this supports older generation core processors as the Media SDK for Clients does.
It's also not clear to me whether the SDK for servers can be used with windows platforms other than Windows Server 2012?
Hello, Thanks for the question. Hope this helps understand the supported platforms for the product: The Media products support SNB and newer on Windows, and IVB and newer on Linux. The server size supports Core and some Xeon, the Windows side supports Core and some Atom/Celeron/Pentium and some Xeon. And the server products can be used on other Windows platforms, and not just Win Server 2012. For more information, you can see ark.intel.com for more support information on HW.
