SOC provides an H.264 4K encoder IP Core for Xilinx and Intel FPGAs. The encoder supports up to 4K (3840×2160) resolution at 60fps. Parameters are configurable at run-time through a user APIs.
An intra-only and inter-frame slim versions of the core are available. The intra-only version uses about 1/3 of the logic resources, at the cost of producing about twice the bit rate of the standard version. The inter-frame slim version uses ~1/2 of the full-core resources, allowing it to fit on lower-end devices, or extremely resource-constrained systems. The slim version is perfect for applications with high network bandwidth, where higher bitrates are acceptable. The output bit rate of the slim version is about 20% higher than the standard version.

The H.264 4K Video Encoder IP Core can be evaluated on SOC's Evaluation Kits. Evaluation kits include a carrier-board with all the ports and extensions needed for most video-based applications. The module and carrier board firmware are reconfigurable, and we can license board files if needed.
