Pioneering 4K Streaming with AWS Elemental
Overview: AWS Elemental, an Amazon subsidiary, aimed to be the first to showcase an encoder capable of supporting HEVC 4K 10 bits 60 fps streams.
Details: The challenge was clear: support HEVC 4K streams at unprecedented quality levels. AWS Elemental, with Motion Spell's assistance, leveraged the GPAC player to achieve this feat. This collaboration not only resulted in the development of benchmarking features within GPAC but also introduced software acceleration for color space conversion, ensuring AWS Elemental's position as an industry leader.
