Unlock Media Features on More CPUs, GPUs, and Accelerators

There are lots of uses for video I/O—broadcasting, streaming, VOD, in-cloud gaming—and lots of hardware platforms on which to run it.

Which, of course, poses a potential problem: video decode, encode, and frame processing are ideal candidates for hardware acceleration, but multiple hardware plus OS-specific code paths are hard to maintain.

Enter the Intel® oneAPI Video Processing Library (oneVPL), the successor to Intel® Media SDK.

In this session, Technical Consulting Engineer Mark Liu will introduce the library. Topics covered:

  • How it enables your applications to access current and future hardware features better than its predecessor, including API enhancements
  • Intel’s video accelerator hardware and architecture
  • Software options to access video acceleration and recommendations for which to choose
  • How to test drive oneVPL samples and tools on the Intel® DevCloud

Download the software
Get the oneVPL as part of the Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit, a core set of tools and libraries for developing performant applications across diverse architectures.


  • Sign up for an Intel® DevCloud for oneAPI account—a free development sandbox with access to the latest Intel® hardware and oneAPI software.
  • Explore oneAPI, including developer opportunities and benefits
  • Subscribe to the POD—Code Together is an interview series that explores the challenges at the forefront of cross-architecture development. Each bi-weekly episode features industry VIPs who are blazing new trails through today’s data-centric world. Available wherever you get your podcasts.
