What is Intel® Quick Sync Video?

Intel Quick Sync Video, built right into the Intel® Core™ processor1 with Intel® Graphics Technology, uses the dedicated media processing capabilities of Intel Graphics Technology to make video creation and conversion faster and easier. With it you can create DVDs or Blu-ray* discs, create and edit 3D videos, convert 2D video files into 3D, and convert video for your portable media player and for uploading to your favorite social networking sites—all in a flash.

How it works

Video content is typically compressed and encoded into a specific format when it is stored on hard drives, DVDs, camcorders, cell phones, or broadcast media. When you want to play that content, burn it onto a DVD or Blu-ray* disc, or copy it to your phone, it must first be decoded and then re-encoded in a new format, a resource- and time-intensive process. Intel Quick Sync Video uses the dedicated media processing capabilities of Intel Graphics Technology to decode and encode significantly faster, while also enabling the processor to complete other tasks, improving overall PC performance and responsiveness.
