H.264 8K Video Encoder IP Core
(H.264 8K Video/Audio Encoder IP Core)


SOC provides an H.264 8K encoder IP Core for Xilinx FPGAs. The encoder supports up to 8K (7680 × 4320) resolution at 60 fps. Parameters including bitrate, latency, quantization, GOP are configurable at run-time using API registers.

Product Evaluation Kits


The H.264 8K 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.

Begin the evaluation process by any of these methods:

Support


  • Telephone/email support
  • IP Core updates/maintenance subscription
