Discrete GPUs for Broadcast and Streaming
Today, video makes up over 80% of global Internet traffic1, and viewers expect broadcast quality with higher resolutions across a growing variety of devices. At the same time, new 5G networks are dramatically increasing the throughput for mobile customers.
All of this means that media providers must find new ways to optimize total cost of ownership while meeting subscriber demands for more sophisticated content. The Intel® Data Center GPU Flex Series helps by increasing the density of streams that can be supported per server—without compromising quality. The Intel® Data Center GPU Flex Series is the ideal solution for Live and Over the Top video streaming with optimized software stack for low latency streaming services. Intel® Server GPU with support for MPEG2 and AVC interlaced support makes it the ideal solution for linear broadcast market.
