GRASS VALLEY, CA — AJA Video Systems (www.aja.com) announces Corvid HEVC, a 4K and multi-channel HEVC encoding card, as the latest addition to AJA's Developer Program. Cisco, a developer partner of AJA's, is demonstrating the integration of Corvid HEVC into the Cisco UCS rack-based server at its booth at IBC.
Corvid HEVC is a PCIe 2.0 8-lane video encoder card providing realtime, low-latency HEVC encoding at 4K, 1080p HD and lower resolutions. Development partners can use AJA’s powerful SDK to integrate Corvid HEVC directly into their Windows and Linux applications using a flexible API for a variety of use cases. In addition to HEVC encoding, audio and metadata are also captured and included in the encoded file.
Key features include: Realtime 4K/UHD/HD HEVC hardware-based encoding, PCIe 2.0 8-lane full-height card, low power consumption, supports HEVC Main and Main10 profiles, supports 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 at 8- or 10-bits, and supports bit rates for streaming and contribution quality. Support for HEVC streams include: Single 4K/UHD stream up to 60 fps, as many as 4 streams at 1080p HD up to 60 fps, 4x 3G-SDI inputs, 1x LTC input, 16-channel embedded audio support per stream, ANC data support, supports file-to-file encoding, built on AJA’s powerful cross-platform NTV2 SDK for Windows and Linux, and AJA’s extensive Developer Program partner support.
