Cinegy introduces worlds fastest video codec

Cinegy, which develops and produces software technology for digital video processing, asset management, video compression, automation, and playout unveiled DANIEL2, believed to be the worlds fastest video codec, during IBC 2015. 

 

The new DANIEL2 codec is an acquisition and production codec designed for recording from camera sources, editing, and post-production as well as playout and was developed from inception to be GPU based with no dependence on legacy codec architectures. DANIEL2 can decode up to 1100 frames per second at 8K (7680x4320), 16x the resolution of full HD, which translates to over 17,000 frames of full HD per second.

 

Cinegy Managing Director Jan Weigner said, Today, even if users could decode multiple 4K or 8K streams using a CPU, which they cannot, they would probably still want to use the power of the GPU for effects and filters. Then there is the issue of system bus bandwidth bottlenecks for those trying to transfer decoded streams to the GPUs memory. This is where DANIEL2 shines as streams a fraction of the size of their uncompressed counterparts are read from disk, or via a network, and are passed to the GPU for decompression faster than uncompressed frames can be copied. 

 

As a result of its architecture, DANIEL2 offers three key benefits. It uses far less system bandwidth, consumes less disc or network bandwidth, and frees a CPU from the heavy lifting of video stream decoding so it can perform other tasks.

 

To verify its speed and accuracy, Cinegy used DANIEL2 on its IBC stand to decode multiple 8K and 4K streams while performing real time compositing, colour correction, scaling, and titling. The results were all displayed in real time 8K. 

 

The hardware platform used for the DANIEL2 IBC demo was an off-the-shelf sub-$1000 PC, in this case equipped with an Intel quad core i7-6700K processor, and an Nvidia GTX980Ti or Quadro M6000 graphics card.

 

Weigner added, The way that DNxHR, ProRes and XAVC codecs are architected doesnt allow them to take full advantage of GPUs, and this is something that cannot ever - be rectified. The usefulness of those codecs ends with 4K, in some cases even HD; and they certainly have no place in an 8K production workflow. However, with DANIEL2, you can encode/decode 8K right now, in real time, on hardware you already own.

 

DANIEL2, as AVI and QuickTime codecs, will soon be available as an SDK for developers. This allows for seamless integration with existing applications such as Adobe Premiere, Adobe AfterEffects, AVID MediaComposer, Vizrt, or any other application that supports these containers. 

 

DANIEL2 Features

  • Up to 4:4:4:4 colour space for RGBA, keying, graphics overlays etc.
  • Up to 8, 10, 12 or 16 bit colour depth
  • Extremely low decoding latency
  • Multi-generation re-compression without artefacts
  • Efficient with "almost transparent" frames
  • Selectable compression ratio from 1:3 to 1:30, adaptable, variable bit rate encoding
  • Optimized for Nvidia CUDA

 

DANIEL2 Summary

  • Worlds fastest production and acquisition codec 
  • Designed for GPUs for maximum performance
  • Architected to be very conservative with GPU memory bandwidth to leave computing resources to simultaneously perform GPU accelerated FX and composing
  • Currently the only way to play professional quality 8K streams on affordable, commodity hardware or even using a consumer-grade laptop

 

DANIEL2 Decode Performance (using Nvidia Quadro M6000)

  • HD    17000 fps
  • 4K     4300 fps
  • 8K     1100 fps
  • 16K   280 fps

Academy Award-winning production company chooses Avid-certified Workspace Backup tool

Zentropa in Denmark is one of the leading post-production companies in Europe, winning the most prestigious awards on the international film scene and producing over 200 films to date. The company has recently invested in Workspace Backup from Marquis Broadcast, to take backups of Avid work-in-progress as part of its disaster recovery plan. Although feature film work for both the national and international markets are its main focus, Zentropa also produces TV documentaries and series, along with music videos, so needed a simple automated backup system that could provide a daily backup of all projects and media files.

Studio Technologies Introduces New Dante and reg; Intercom Beltpacks

Studio Technologies, manufacturer of high-quality audio, video, and fiber-optic solutions, introduces two new Dante®-enabled intercom beltpacks, the Model 372A and Model 373A. Both units, which combine a single talk channel with two channels of listen, are capable of supporting professional and consumer-grade, single- and dual-channel headsets with audio quality that far exceeds typical party-line intercom equipment. The Model 372A is intended to connect with headsets that use a 5-pin male XLR connector, while the Model 373A interfaces with headsets that use a 4-pin female XLR connector. Both are also equipped with a 3.5 mm 4-conductor TRRS jack, allowing direct connection with earbuds and gaming headsets. Only a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) connection is required for interconnection with a Dante network.

CRYSTAL VISION RELEASES FLEXIBLE BUDGET-FRIENDLY PROFANITY DELAY SYSTEM FOR AUDIO AND VIDEO

Cleanit is Crystal Vision's new profanity delay system. One of the few products available for protecting video as well as audio, Cleanit allows a live content stream to be delayed by up to 20 seconds in HD (ten seconds in 3Gb/s or 110 seconds in SD), giving the operator time to react and prevent the broadcast of unwanted or offensive video or audio material – such as expletives, obscene gestures, wardrobe malfunctions, bloopers, competitor mentions, coughing fits or technical problems. Features which make Cleanit the ideal profanity delay solution include its budget-friendly flexibility (multiple packages allow the broadcaster to just pay for the amount of protection needed), the ability to delay the programme by the exact amount required and the simple, intuitive control using a smart button box or computer GUI – with the choice of either manual or automatic operation of the cover/uncover functions.
