Video is a most dominant data type across many areas and applications, uninterrupted flow of video is critical in such cases. Video service providers are faced with the challenge of simultaneously managing infrastructure and improving customer Quality of Experience. These challenges have prompted the need for adaptable hardware acceleration.
Challenges like effective video distribution, managing bandwidth and Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) streaming protocols. These approaches yield efficient results but increase computational complexity. A solution is build that would supply the necessary performance without requiring customers to significantly alter their existing infrastructure. We are delivering an Alveo™ accelerated real-time H.264 to HEVC or VP9 ABR transcoder.
1080p60 real-time encoding with better quality than x265 ‘slow’ preset
10X lower power consumption than CPU/GPU
Consistent output quality, independent of number of encoding channels
FFmpeg plugins for Decoder, Scaler, and Encoders
Built-in multi-pass encoding
Flexible multiple ABR outputs with up to 32 streams with a single instance
Constant bitrate (CBR), capped VBR, and ABR modes
Bitrates: Configurable from 100 Kb/s to 40 Mb/s
Latency: Configurable from 1 second to 4 seconds
