The H.264/AVC HD Video Encoder IP Core is a real-time encoder of HD video or video/audio data. A single core can encode video of up to 1920×1080 resolution at up to 120fps. The latency for 30fps,60fps, is 0.25ms and 0.125ms respectively, close to "zero latency" between input and output. The core has been optimized to use very few FPGA resources, allowing for a very small footprint and very low power consumption. The incredible efficiency of SOC's IP Cores makes them ideal for power-sensitive electronics and large-scale processing installations.
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 HD 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.
