Using the new Codec SDK 8.0, professional software developers can seamlessly integrate low level codec components and DirectShow filters for video, as well as audio encode and decode into their own solutions, thereby increasing the number of platforms. This allows developers to reduce integration work, save time and decrease costs, while increasing the overall solution quality since the same line of code is utilized.

Now available is a low delay flag to reduce latency, an essential feature for video-conferencing, as well as medical and security software using the H.264/AVC format. The H.264 and the MPEG-2 component for encoding have been optimized for improved quality.
