HEVC Real-time Software Encoder for 8K Live Video Applications

In this paper Spin Digital introduces Spin Enc Live, a high-quality and high-performance 8K HEVC real-time encoder designed for high-end applications in 8K broadcasting an internet streaming. Using an optimized CPU-based implementation, the encoder is able to achieve quality and compression levels similar to best-in-class offline encoders (typically used for VoD) while, at the same time, providing the performance required for processing 8Kp60 videos in real-time.
