Leveraging High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)/H.265 Compression for Greater Situational Awareness and Actionable Intelligence
Presented by Keith Wymbs, VP Marketing, Elemental Technologies
Thursday, December 5th at 9 AM

Accessibility to UAV-borne video compression codecs that can process huge volumes of HD content in real time and in a minimal footprint are vital to U.S. military initiatives. Traditional video compression approaches, such as MPEG-2 and H.264, cannot keep pace with high-volume HD video. The High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC or H.265) is designed to provide high-quality video at substantially lower bit rates. HEVC/H.265 encoding presents computational complexities for which the massively parallel GPU architectures are well-suited. Elemental has deep experience implementing video codecs from specification to full implementation using programmable GPUs and standard software tools. This presentation will illustrate how H.265 can enable more informed warfighters and ISR analysts and support their commitment to achieving the mission.

GV Expo 2013 is taking place on December 3rd-5th at Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Register here.
