Deliver Fast Video Processing in Smart Camera and Connected Car Applications
We enthusiastically announce the launch of Intel® Media SDK for Embedded Linux*!
Smart camera and connected car developers can now deliver fast and efficient video processing in media applications with the Intel® Media SDK for Embedded Linux*. This opens the door for optimizing video streaming to and from smart camera usages across a host of devices: drones, phones, robotics, videocams, cars, players and editors, and more.
Just released, the Intel Media SDK for Embedded Linux supports the latest Intel® Atom®, Intel® Pentium® and Intel® Celeron® processors as well as Yocto Project* (a comprehensive embedded Linux development environment). Together, this SDK along with Intel processor-based platforms bring real-time computing in digital surveillance and new in-vehicle experiences.
Get Fast Media Performance with Hardware-Accelerated Codecs
The Media SDK provides access to Intel® Quick Sync Video (hardware-accelerated video codecs in the Intel graphics processor), which helps developers achieve outstanding encoding, decoding and processing performance. The SDK supports many widely-adopted codecs such as HEVC, AVC, MPEG-2 and more. Its APIs deliver rich capabilities to tune the video encoding pipeline for the best visual quality.
Ensure reliability in long-term production deployments (the Media SDK libraries were tested for enhanced stress and error robustness).

Download the Intel Media SDK for Embedded Linux now
The Media SDK library inputs and outputs the elementary video stream to process the data; it works with the mux/demux component from the software in the market to manage the video stream in the standard container.
