nablet releases HEVC plugin for Avid Media Access


AACHEN, Germany – June 8, 2020 – nablet, a leading provider of media processing technologies, announced today that it has released an HEVC plugin for Avid Media Access (AMA). This new product joins the existing suite of popular nablet AMA plugins.

The nablet HEVC AMA Plug-in allows users to link, play and edit HEVC/H.265 video in MP4 or MOV containers via AMA in Avid editing products. It supports processing footage in the video sub-sampling formats 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 at 8 and 10 bits. Depending on the system equipment and type of footage, decoding of the HEVC video stream is performed on GPU accelerated decoders or a powerful software decoder.

The plug-in reads the time code and interprets metadata encapsulated in the media. It also detects BT.2020, HLG and other HDR capture gamma in HEVC shots so that Media Composer can automatically assign a color transformation that matches the project color space.

“Many users have asked nablet for a solution which allows ingesting HEVC/H.265 video shot on popular cameras into Avid editing products,” said Peter Neuman, Product Manager, Plugins at nablet. “Even today, decoding H.265 video is a challenge for computers. We are proud to release a product which can take advantage of hardware accelerated decoding on a variety of system configurations to provide a fluent workflow.”

“We are continuing to meet the needs of content creators around the world,” said Muzaffer Beygirci, CEO of nablet. “This plugin expands our wide line of NLE plugins, plus codecs and media processing tools including our new AI products.”

The nablet HEVC AMA Plug-in is available for $89 (US) at this link.

A free demo version is available for download, and volume licenses are offered.
