Overview Reseller Benefits How to Order

Combining the Graphics of the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3 and the Power of the Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 on One System

The Intel® Visual Compute Accelerator brings 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) media processing capabilities to Intel® Xeon® processor E5 platforms. The Intel® Visual Compute Accelerator card integrates three Intel® Xeon® E3 processors with Intel® IrisTM Pro graphics and Intel® Media Server Studio-enabled hardware accelerated video processing into a PCIe* card form factor that fits into Intel® Xeon® processor E5-based servers.

Specifically designed for High Definition (HD) and 4K UHD media processing with High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and high-density Advanced Video Coding (AVC) transcoding solutions with this card you can offer your cloud and communication service provider customers a customizable solution that can:

  • Offer fast transcoding for video into multiple formats and bit rates reducing the amount of time needed to process the video inputs
  • Reduce the amount of storage needed for those multiple formats through higher compression processing
  • Allow for real time transcoding into multiple formats from the stored format, reducing the need to store all possible media formats
  • Reduces the amount of network bandwidth needed (lower bit rates) at better video quality by compressing the video prior to transmission

The Intel® Visual Compute Accelerator is uniquely capable of supporting the different media processing solutions as it contains three Intel Xeon processor E3 v4 with Intel Iris Pro Graphics P6300; placing these three processors on a Gen3 x16 PCIe card provides high throughput and low latency when moving data to and from the card.
