Vantrix Launches f265.org for Open Source HEVC Encoder

Free Source Code Available for Collaboration on H.265 Implementations

LOS ANGELES, CA and MONTREAL, QC -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- (The Cable Show 2014) -- Vantrix, a global provider of high performance media delivery solutions to service and content providers, today officially launched their open source HEVC project website, f265.org. The company will showcase their HEVC encoder during The Cable Show 2014 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, California, which opens tomorrow and runs through May 1.

The f265 project was previously announced as an open source version of the H.265 encoder, also known as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). The project aims to accelerate the industry-wide development and adoption of H.265 through a collaborative and free open source model. The project website is now officially available for researchers and commercial entities to obtain the source code and contribute to the refinement and evolution of the code to accelerate the implementation of both software and hardware systems.

Vantrix's f265 encoder will be licensed under the OSI BSD terms, enabling access to source code, free redistribution, and derived works. The project will target both high quality offline and real-time encoding.

"The f265.org site is maintained by and for developers to help accelerate the development and adoption of HEVC," noted Francis Labonte, Vantrix research lab director. "We have a working baseline version available that we've been demonstrating for UHD/4k live streaming and now want to take the real-time performance and feature set to the next level. We're hoping to contribute to accelerating the industry transition from H.264 to H.265 and solving network bandwidth issues for high definition video."

The f265 project website is available at www.f265.org.

Visitors to The Cable Show 2014 can come to booth #2454 during exhibition hours to view a demo of the Vantrix HEVC encoder.

The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right. Practices that work for small scale continuous testing may not be sufficient as the requirements grow.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
