AWX is a proprietary graphics card accelerated codec family for Analog Way Picturall media servers. AWX files are not available for playback for other platforms.
There are four different AWX codecs: AWX, AWX Alpha, AWX HQ and AWX QG Alpha.
AWX codec offers the lowest data rates for maximum simultaneous playback and AWX Alpha has support for transparency. AWX HQ and AWX HQ Alpha codecs offer the best image quality but at a higher data rate, allowing simultaneous playback of a smaller number of video files.
When and why should I use AWX codecs?
It is recommended to use one of the AWX codecs when the performance requirements for the installations exceed typical requirements such as 4K@60. Typical use cases are 8K playback or large blended projection full resolution video playback. AWX codecs are for example capable of handling video playback of over 100 megapixels with the Picturall Pro hardware and performance+ NVMe media drives.
The AWX codecs are optimized to work with all Picturall server media and to provide the best possible performance for large-scale installations or events.
