Elecard DirectShow Codec SDK provides essential tools for quick and professional development of multimedia products. The development kit comprises a variety of codecs along with documentation, BaseClasses, and program samples. BaseClasses help to simplify development process. Samples include decoding, encoding, and network applications that demonstrate how to use and configure Elecard components; they can be utilized as a baseline for building your own applications. Intel® Quick Sync technology support in Elecard SDK enables creation of cost effective video encoding and decoding applications supporting HEVC 4K 60 fps with fast preprocessing on 1U unit. Professional technical support will lend a helping hand if any pitfalls occur during development.
Base Classes - a C++ class library that simplifies common tasks, appearing during development of multimedia applications, such as: DirectShow graphs building, filters and pins control etc. Base classes are used in SDK sample applications and are delivered in source form.
Elecard DirectShow Codec SDK comprises components of the most popular and advanced formats, such as VP8/9, MPEG-2, H.264, H.265 and containers MP4, MXF, MKV, MPEG2. Use of Intel QuickSync technology for video processing reduces hardware costs while increases performance. Elecard network components ensure stable data receipt via UDP, RTP, RTSP, Apple HLS protocols and prepare content for streaming via UDP, RTP, MPEG-DASH, Apple HLS. The components are provided in 64-bit versions unless otherwise specified.
A Full version of Elecard DirectShow Codec SDK includes a 1-month period of Elecard Professional support program and updates for the filters and components within one major version. Additional assistance and a year of updates and upgrades for the SDK Full version (including documentation and sample applications updates) can be purchased as a yearly subscription for Elecard support programs.See what SDK technical support includes
