2013

Elecard updates Elecard Codec SDK G4 and Elecard Codec.NET SDK G4 and announces significant changes for the next major release


Today Elecard releases Elecard Codec SDK G4 1.5 and Codec .NET SDK G4 1.5, a line of software development kits for creating digital video encoding and playback applications using Elecard components within the Microsoft® DirectShow® technology.  The updated SDKs come with a number of updated components that deliver better results and video quality and have become more reliable.

It should also be noted that the upcoming major release 2.x of Elecard Codec SDK G4 and Codec.NET SDK G4 will bring significant changes to the resolution policy. Elecard has planned to discontinue the practice of separating codec versions by different video resolutions (SD, HD, 16K). Each component will be delivered in a single version without any quality restrictions. The output resolution will be considered during the process of component licensing.

The following components have been updated in the current version 1.5:

  •    Elecard AVC Video Decoder
  •    Elecard AVC Video Encoder
  •    Elecard MPEG-2 Decoder
  •    Elecard MPEG-2 Encoder
  •    Elecard MPEG Demultiplexer

  •    Elecard MP4 Multiplexer
  •    Elecard Color Space Converter
  •    Elecard NW Renderer
  •    Elecard NWSource-Plus

The components below will be removed from the SDKs in the major version 2.x that will be released shortly:
