Media (Intel® Video Processing Library, Intel Media SDK)
Access community support with transcoding, decoding, and encoding in applications using media tools like Intel® oneAPI Video Processing Library and Intel® Media SDK
The Intel Media SDK project is no longer active. For continued support and access to new features, Intel Media SDK users are encouraged to read the transition guide on upgrading from Intel® Media SDK to Intel® Video Processing Library (VPL), and to move to VPL as soon as possible.
For more information, see the VPL website.

Recommended HW configuration/components


Need the recommendation for the HW configuration which can be used as 'flagship/demo/reference' hw platform to feature the performances of Intel Media SDK performance, something that's

a) proven to work right out of the box (graphics card + WHDL certified driver performs nice with D3D and D11 surfaces)

b) not too pricey (or best for the money)

c) preferred laptop configuration, but desktop is not rejected as a choice either

We can not make specific recommendations of products, but when shopping for a new system you can check the processor capabilities by looking at and making sure to choose a product that uses a modern Intel graphics product.  Products that contain "Intel® HD Graphics 4000" would work well, and you'd want to make sure the platform contains "Windows 8" certification, as these will contain WHDL certified DX11.1 drivers.
