As one of the founding members of Alliance for Open Media, Intel has done a lot to promote the AV1 codec and make it accessible to users. The blue team was the first to introduce hardware AV1 decoding with Xe-LP GPUs in 2020. The tech giant has now released version 1.0 of its fast open source Scalable Video Technology AV1 encoder and decoder for CPUs. SVT-AV1 is compatible with all modern processors.

AV1 open source video codec solution is designed for ultra-high resolutions, wide color gamut and high amic range enhancements. AOMedia said in 2018 that AV1 is 30% more efficient than existing codecs. However, high-throughput codecs are extremely resource-hungry and often require hardware acceleration to function properly. Meanwhile, modern CPUs have many resources and new instruction sets that can be applied to decoding and encoding, exactly as the SVT-AV1 does.

SVT-AV1 will be a scalable codec library that can take advantage of the multi-core nature of modern CPUs and AVX2 consoles. Phoronix reports that SVT-AV1 adds more AVX2 optimizations, image quality improvements, fast decoding for preset levels, and S-frame support to boost performance.

Version 1.0 of the SVT-AV1 encoder/decoder library is pretty good news for creators and end users. As an additional reminder, Intel’s SVT-AV1 library is available for Apple’s macOS, Microsoft’s Windows and Supported on Linux-based x86 systems: Intel 5th Gen Core ‘Broadwell’ and above.
