- Essential tools and runtimes.
- Intel SDK for OpenCL™ Applications (Linux | Windows) – assists with creating, building, debugging, and analyzing OpenCL applications for the underlying architecture, providing in-depth analysis with visualization and interactive mode, which is extremely useful for optimization.
- Metrics Monitor tool (Linux only) provides visibility into the GPU load metrics, utilization stats for the hardware accelerators (i.e VDBOX, VEBOX), and GPU execution units.
- Intel® Premier Support, providing direct access to Intel technical experts.
Includes Essentials edition, plus enterprise-quality HEVC and audio codecs, Intel® VTune™ Amplifier performance analysis tool, Video Quality Caliper stream quality analyzer, Premium Telecine Interlace Reverser, and more.
For premium media performance, video quality, and compliance, the Pro edition adds enterprise-quality HEVC and audio codecs, and advanced video quality analysis tools. Includes:
- Essentials edition
- Industry standard and future media codecs: HEVC (H.265), Advanced Audio Codec (AAC), and MPEG-2. The tool provides HEVC software decoder and encoder, HEVC GPU accelerated encoder and GPU assist APIs for accelerating your own HEVC encoder on Intel HD Graphics.
- Intel® VTune™ Amplifier is a performance profiler, ideal for tuning media applications. Gather the rich set of CPU, GPU, threading, OpenCL and bandwidth metrics needed to find media processing bottlenecks. Intel VTune Amplifier provides tools to quickly analyze and interpret data. Sort and filter the results and then display it for easy analysis on the timeline, the code source and on a GPU architecture diagram that shows VDBox, VEBox, EU utilization, and bus bandwidth. Get faster code faster with extensive performance metrics and powerful analysis tools.
- Premium Telecine Interlace Reverser (PTIR), a state-of-the-art converter, converts telecined and/or interlaced video to progressive format by removing redundancy and artifacts. It automatically performs needed processing, such as on telecined content it detects and reverses telecine patterns, and on interlaced content it performs high quality deinterlacing, resulting in video of progressive format, which can be efficiently compressed. PTIR is implemented as a plugin in the Pro Edition.
- Video Quality Caliper provides efficient sequence-level inspection of the quality of encoded or decoded video streams. The tool provides objective metrics such as PSNR and SSIM, in addition to the ability for subjective inspection by allowing an interactive graphical interface.
