Xilinx invests significant amount in NGCodec to accelerate H.265/HEVC video encoder FPGA IP for Data Center, Broadcast and Pro A/V markets
“Xilinx customers are looking for lower power and cost effective H.265/HEVC video encoding solutions, but still want the flexibility to update the design in the field to support emerging capabilities,” said Salil Raje, corporate vice president, Xilinx software and IP products. “Xilinx FPGAs combined with video encoding IP from NGCodec will enable Xilinx customers to have differentiated encoding offerings with the flexibility they are looking for.”
"The combination of Xilinx’s UltraScale and UltraScale+ FPGA technology with NGCodec’s H.265/HEVC codecs provide a potent technology platform," said Mahmoud Al-Daccak, CTO of Haivision, a leading manufacturer of enterprise video solutions. "This assures that we can support the most demanding H.265/HEVC solutions today, with substantial downstream potential capabilities for our customers."
