Scalable Video Technology

Scalable Video Technology (SVT) is a software-based video coding technology that is highly optimized for Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Xeon® D processors. Using the open source SVT encoder core found on this website, it is possible to spread video encoding processing across multiple Intel® Xeon® processors. With many data centers using Intel® Xeon® processors, a real advantage of processing efficiency can be achieved by using a combination of SVT video encoders and Intel® Xeon® processors. The large core count available on modern processors (e.g. up to 56 cores per dual-socket platform) makes it possible to scale the performance of SVT encoders extremely well as a function of the available computational resources.
