Zond 265 - first HEVC/H265 Video Analyser by Solveig Multimedia

Dear friends,

Today we are proud to present a demo version of our H.265 Analyser - Zond 265.

It is the first-to-market tool for visual in-depth analysing of HEVC/H265 video bitstreams. It’s intended to help video developers and researchers to simplify codec development, easily isolate and identify visual artifacts or problems with bitstream compliance, to see encoding elements of video data.

It shows in handy way NAL information, frames types, frames sizes, time stamps, stream/display order counters, bits distribution between frame elements, coding units data, coding units coefficients, predicted partitions, transform partitions, motion vectors, quantizers, different stages of picture decoding - predicted picture, before deblock filtering, after deblock filtering, final picture.


Operating systems supported: Windows XP - Windows 7
Linux and Mac versions will be available soon.

Please visit our web page for more details and downloading of the demo.

Please feel free to ask any questions.

nice work Wonder if you will beat Videoredo to add HEVC support to your video editing app. It took us years to get an app that could edit h.264 files, hope we don't have to wait so long until we get HEVC editing capability.

Let's see up to the moment the standard is not even released

Seeing as though pretty much the only users will be broadcasters/codec creators i think €2000 isn't that bad. End users won't need this software.

New version of Zond 265, 1.2 gets available.

Analyzer Home Page
http://www.solveigmm.com/en/products/zond/



Features:
- Compatible with reference software HM 8.2
- Highlighting of reference frames for selected CUs. Pointer is shown below frame bars as a small colored angle. Its color specifies an offset of a reference frame from a current one in display order and it changes from green (nearest distance) to red (longest one).
- Highlighting of reference frames for a selected frame. Pointer is shown below frame bars as a small colored bar. Its color specifies an offset of a reference frame from a current one in display order and it changes from green (nearest distance) to red (longest one).
- Reference indexes overlay for CUs. Menu->“Compression details”->”Bits”
- More detailed map of bits and quantizers. Now it is shown for SCU instead of LCU (was in previous version). If the numbers don’t fit to cell, they are not depicted. To see them just zoom in a picture
- Extended frame elements statistics. Percentage of CU types (intra/inter), reference pictures, PU (intra/inter) of different sizes (4x8, 4x16, 8x4 etc.), TU(Y/U/V) of different sizes. The table can be sorted by elements name, percent or bits. Appropriate headers are clickable
- Timeline “Times” option added in format of hour:mins:sec;msec
- Ability to save a frame as IYUV file. It’s available for different picture modes – Predict, Before/After deblocking, Final. That works through clicking of right mouse button to a picture area or a picture bar and using “Save frame as YUV data” button
- Adjustable showing frame elements statistics as a bits-graphic overlaid to frame bars
- Zooming and moving picture area by mouse (wheel – zoom, left button - moving)
- Highlighting selected CU after zooming
- 64 bits version gets available. It allows analyzing of big resolution streams ( > 4K).

Changes:
- Frame statistics is shown as performance chart instead of pie chart.
- Reference indexes overlay for CUs ( instead of LCUs). Menu->“Compression details”->”Bits”
- A color for skipped blocks in PU partitions. Not it’s grey instead of yellowish (in version 1.1)
- A color scheme for CU blocks in “Reference Indexes” mode. Now skipped blocks are grey
- Renamed elements of CU; L[0][0] to L0[0]; L[1][0] to L1[0]; V to MV (Motion Vector); D to MVD (Motion Vector Difference); P to MVP(Predicted Motion Vector); I to merge_idx (order number in a candidate list)

Fixes:
- In time-consuming actions mouse pointer indicates “thinking”
- Operating in Firefox and IE (starting from 8). For best performance Google Chrome is recommended
- Delivers error message in case of if can’t allocate enough memory. For working with a big resolution streams, 64 bit version is recommended.

http://www.solveigmm.com/en/products/zond/



Features:
- Compatible with reference software HM 10
- Shows video parameter set(VPS) structure
- Shows supplementalenhancement information (SEI)
- Extended stream statistics - CU types, Reference pictures, Intra/Inter PU sizes, TU (Y / Cb / Cr) sizes
- Sorting frame / stream statistics elements (residuals, mvd, etc.) by default order or by percentage
- Shows a progress while file loading / parsing

Changes:
- A zoom mode changed. A filter was applied that altered visual pixels in a picture zoomed in. Cancelled.
- Zond is now automatically launched in Google Chrome (if installed) despite of what browser is default one.

Dear members,

Our company is exhibiting at the upcoming IBC 2013 show in Amsterdam, September, 13th to 17th, our booth at Hall 5, Stand 5.C14 and it brings a good opportunity for us to meet and discuss potential partnership.

We will gladly demonstrate the latest achievement in the field of comprehensive debug analysis in easy-to-use visuals for HEVC/H.265 format - Zond 265 that enhanced with the video quality metrics that help to measure video degradation against the original video. The newly developed hex viewer feature allows reviewing bitstreams of the file presented in hexadecimal and binary forms with searching, positioning and highlighting slices and related headers assigned to a frame.

We will traditionally showcase the smart editing solutions for the professionals and end-users. Video Editing SDK allows the developer to create applications for advanced frame-accurate editing of digital video/audio data in various formats. Video Splitter developed on the basis of Video Editing SDK - a powerful editing consumer application - is an illustrative example of the most attractive features implementation.

If you or your colleagues are planning to attend the Show, let us set the date and time for a meeting.

New version 1.5 is out

http://www.solveigmm.com/en/products/zond/

1.5.1312.05, 2013-12-05

Features:
Hex viewer displays file contents in binary and hexadecimal formats with the abilities to search and navigate.
Hex pannel is fully movable, resizable and hidable.
Hex viewer is synchronized with a bitstream tab and highlights header blocks and bitstream header bits. It has been significantly optimized compared to betas and demos.
Added the support for reading HEVC streams from MPEG transport streams in a beta vesion.
Compatible with the reference software HM 12.1.

Fixes:
Opening file procedure was optimized. Now it works faster for large files.
Optimized action responses for large files: mouse clicks, data showing.
1 frames stream could not be opened.
Open file dialog has now OnTop property as it happened that is didn't arise.
Calling a nonexistent file from a history didn't deliver an error.
Hanging on some large files.
Crashes on some files.
Display order was shown incorrectly if slice_pic_order_cnt_lsb had some skips.

Changes:
Stream statistics parsing moved to a separate procedure. It is managed in Stream Stats tab. Can be paused and resumed.

In the nearest feature the online verison gets free upload feature. So you can analyse your H.265 files online
http://zond265-demo.solveigmm.com:8090

Mac version is also available by request.

ZOND 264 is also coming
