KALRAY to showcase low power, live Ultra HD (4K) HEVC encoder at CCBN 2014 in collaboration with DivX

Orsay, Paris, March 17, 2014 — KALRAY, the designer and exclusive provider of the low power, high performance MPPA MANYCORE processor, today announced the demonstration at CCBN 2014 of its unique low power live Ultra HD HEVC (4K) encoder running on the KALRAY MPPA MANYCORE processor.

The demonstration will be streaming DivX HEVC UltraHD (4K) video to a 4K TV set. The MPPA-256 , KALRAY’s first MPPA® MANYCORE processor coming with 256 cores on a single chip, will be used for a demonstration at CCBN 2014, being held in Beijing, China (Mar 20-22). The MPPA-256 processor demonstrates a complete Ultra HD HEVC live encoding based on DivX HEVC UltraHD video.

Kalray’s demnonstrator uses the MainConcept HEVC SDK that is capable of encoding a high-quality Ultra HD HEVC video at 30 fps using four MPPA®-256 processors which consume less than 50 Watts altogether. The decoding and live display will be shown on a commercially available Ultra HD TV. KALRAY and DivX will be showcasing this unique demonstration on DivX booth #2403 located in hall 2.

The MPPA MANYCORE processor opens exciting new perspectives to the video broadcast market as it can either power low energy footprint contribution Ultra HD encoders or bring more energy efficiency to cloud infrastructures used by content providers to encode, decode or transcode multi-format and premium videos for the growing demand of multi-screen devices including tablets and smartphones.

DivX HEVC is part of an end-to-end solution helping to accelerate the adoption of the next-generation compression standard across the entire video distribution system. The solution includes MainConcept® encoding SDKs for professional content creators, the DivX Video Service™ with studio approved DivX DRM for protected content delivery across multi-screen devices, and popular DivX consumer software tools for PC-based content creation and playback.

In addition, DivX HEVC is integrated into the DivX Certification program that allows IC and OEM customers to quickly bring to market mobile and consumer electronics products that enable consistently high-quality DivX HEVC video playback.
