Intel, Netflix to Deliver AV1 Scalable Codec

The SVT-AV1 codec offers both high performance and efficiency. And compared to today’s most popular codec (H.264 AVC), SVT-AV1 can help service providers save up to half their bandwidth, delivering leading-edge user experiences that can be quickly and cost-effectively delivered at a global scale. This codec makes it possible for services ranging from video on demand to live broadcast of 4Kp60/10-bit content on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, including the recently launched 2nd-Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor.” –Lynn Comp, Intel vice president of the Network Platforms Group and general manager of the Visual Cloud Division
