This paper demonstrates the usage of Kvazaar open-source HEVC intra encoder in 4K real-time video encoding. In this setup, a raw 4K video is shot by an action camera, captured by an HDMI capture card, encoded in real-time by Kvazaar ultrafast preset on a 22-core Intel Xeon processor, sent to a laptop, and decoded by OpenHEVC decoder for playback. The encoding process is visualized on the fly by Kvazaar run-time visualizer.
