"The emergence of 4K Ultra HD and the exploding popularity of streaming services are driving increased video traffic, and networks cannot expand fast enough for this growth. Companies need to find ways to achieve deeper compression to retain their growth trajectories in streaming video," said Dr. Renga Sundararajan, Squid Systems V.P. of products and marketing. "The Squid HEVC encoder provides a solution, cutting bit rates by 50% while achieving best-of-class video quality," he added.

The Squid HEVC encoder supports Main-8 and Main-10 profiles and resolution ranging from 720p to 4K. Programmable quality levels allow optimized solutions for applications including broadcast head-end equipment, cloud based encode / transcode servers, DVRs, NVRs, STBs/OTTs, video conferencing servers, home media servers and surveillance servers.   

Demonstrations at NABShow 2014
Squid will be demonstrating its realtime HEVC encoder solution at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, from April 7 to April 10, in South Hall meeting room SU12524MR. The company is also previewing its design IP for FPGA-based hardware acceleration and a complete codec design for SoC integration.

Interested parties are invited to contact:  mkt@squidsystems.com to arrange a private demonstration.
