- 1-ch 4K (2160p) or 4-ch FHD (1080p) @ 60 fps real-time encoding in Main 8, Main 10 or Main 10 4:2:2 modes
- Less than 35W power consumption
- 4K video capture over built-in HDMI 2.0, Display Port 1.2 or 4-ch SDI-3G video inputs
- Simple-to-use API and example code for FFmpeg and GStreamer multimedia frameworks
VEGA-3301 enables real-time 4K UltraHD (2160p60) HEVC encoding at up to 20x less power consumption than a software-only solution. The HEVC/H.265 codec is gaining momentum because it reduces bit rates by approximately 50% when compared to an equivalent quality video stream encoded using H.264, enabling more channels or higher resolution video delivery over the same infrastructure. It is particularly relevant for 4K UltraHD transmission which requires a much higher stream capacity. These improvements are achieved at the penalty of much higher computation complexity, with up to four general purpose server class processors required to perform a 4K 60fps software-based broadcast quality HEVC encoding in real time. VEGA-3301 is tailored for professional media processing and are capable of performing professional grade 4Kp60 Main10 profile HEVC encoding at less than 35W power consumption. The VEGA-3301 adapter additionally features 4K video capture over built-in HDMI 2.0, Display Port or 4-ch SDI-3G video inputs for acquisition-based encoding in contribution workflows. This card feature a simple-to-use API and example code for FFmpeg and GStreamer multimedia frameworks to streamline product development and their integration into existing applications.
