Pixbend SDK is targeted to developers who wish to quickly integrate
Pixbend Technology with their own products.
SDK provides all the necessary resources, for developing such applications.
It includes the Pixbend Streaming API, sample code and documentation.
We constantly improve this SDK. Soon it will support more platforms, including iMac and X-Box 360.
Support for all versions of Pixbend video codec
Support for all versions of Digital Wave Compressor codec
Pixbend built-in audio codec demuxing and decoding are fully handled by the SDK.
No need to buy and install additional software.
Support for multiple audio language
API allows you to select any audio language stream available in a movie for playback.
Support for international subtitling
As for audio, you may easily select any subtitle language stream available in a movie.
Furthermore, subtitle events are delivered as Unicode data to your application, thus ensuring a wide language support.
Support for read access to metadata
Pixbend SDK allows applications to easily locate and retrieve metadata embedded in movie files.
64-bit File System Support
This library is natively designed to support 64bit file system even on 32bit systems, meaning there are no 2 GB or 4 GB file
Versatile color output format
Decoder delivers YUV or RGB bits for output, including YUY2, UYVY, YV12, 32-bit RGB, 24-bit RGB, 16-bit RGB, 15-bit RGB
and even 12-bit RGB.
Tested and proven
Although Pixbend SDK is a new product, it is based on thoroughly tested and proven technology.
The API is simple and compact which makes it very easy to use for programmers.
You need not spend hours mastering the Pixbend SDK API set.
It is so easy to use that it usually takes an average-skilled programmer less than one hour to get the most out of it.
SDK use requires that you add less than 650 KB of extra files to your application package, which is less than 0.1% of a CD !
All IO and memory functions may be overriden by supplying appropriate callbacks.
Since Pixbend SDK is compatible with many languages, including C, C++, MC++, VB6, VB.Net, C#, J#, Delphi and
Python, you can use the language your developers already know. Learning a new API should be an easy task, so why make it
difficult by learning a new language as well ? You get the benefits of a highly optimized, pure C and ASM core, and the ease of
programming in a language you are familiar with.
Reduced development and integration time
Pixbend SDK can greatly help customers to improve application development time to market, and thus to reduce
We only charge a one-time or renewable flat fee per title/application. Waste neither time nor money managing royalties,
but make the best use of our SDK.
