RealMedia HD

Play tomorrow’s content on today’s networks and devices

RealMedia(r) HD delivers stunning image quality for today’s and tomorrow’s media experiences. RealMedia HD is engineered to provide optimal results for ultra-high-definition content, including 1080p, 4K and even 8K.

RealMedia HD is available for embedded devices. RealMedia HD SDK supports Windows, iOS and Android devices. RealProducer™ is available for content producers interested in generating RMHD content.

Designed for the future

Huge bandwidth savings.

Play crystal-clear 4K at 5 Mbps or Full HD at 1.5 Mbps

Quality delivery on current networks.

Ensure faithful reproduction of 1080p and 4K content when streamed over current-generation networks.

Efficient hardware utilization.

RealMedia HD’s low-complexity codec minimizes CPU load, heat and battery drain.

Dramatically faster encoding speed.

Encode the same source video approximately twice as fast as H.265, and four times as fast as VP9 encoder, without sacrificing quality.

High quality with few compromises.

RealMedia HD provides visibly higher quality at any given bitrate vs. H.264, H.265 and VP9.

Support for next-generation media.

Prepare for the future with a codec designed for 1080p, 4K, 8K, 360°, VR and more.
