VEGA-3300 - 4Kp60 HEVC Broadcast Video Encoder Card
The VEGA-3300 enables real-time 4K UltraHD (2160p60) HEVC encoding at up to 20x less power consumption than a software-only solution. The HEVC/H.265 codec is gaining momentum because it reduces bit rates by approximately 50% when compared to an equivalent quality video stream encoded using H.264, enabling more channels or higher resolution video delivery over the same infrastructure. It is particularly relevant for 4K UltraHD transmission which requires a much higher stream capacity. These improvements are achieved at the penalty of much higher computation complexity, with up to four general purpose server class processors required to perform a 4K 60fps software-based broadcast quality HEVC encoding in real time. VEGA-3300 is tailored for professional media processing and are capable of performing professional grade 4Kp60 Main10 profile HEVC encoding at less than 15W power consumption. The VEGA-3300 targets file or stream-based encoding workflows in a low profile PCIe adapter format to facilitate the integration of multiple accelerators in a range of servers and appliances. This card feature a simple-to-use API and example code for FFmpeg and GStreamer multimedia frameworks to streamline product development and their integration into existing applications.
