Spin SDK 3.1 features a number of new and optimised modules

The Media SDK includes all the necessary components for creating high-end live streaming applications from SDI capture to video encoding, streaming, receiving, decoding and rendering.

Spin SDK is a set of optimised libraries for video and audio encoding, decoding, processing, rendering, I/O and streaming that simplify the creation of innovative and demanding media solutions. Spin SDK also includes the required functionality to combine the media modules for creating custom applications. Samples are provided for simplifying the creation of live encoders and live players.

The new and optimised modules include the Live Encoding Module, which now offers real-time HEVC encoding up to 8Kp60, high-efficiency and low-latency encoding modes and multi-resolution encoding. In addition, the Decoding Module now features 4Kp240, 8Kp120, 16Kp60 HEVC decoding, error resilience for non-compliant inputs and highly optimised CPU implementation.

The new SDK is available for different OS platforms including Windows 8.1 and 10, Red Hat Linux 7 and 8, and Ubuntu 18.04. It is available now for licensing.
