New Video: Jump from 3 to 60fps @ ½ the power with UltraScale and UltraScale+ FPGA-based video encoding

All Internet-connected video devices produce data streams that are processed somewhere in the cloud, said Xilinx Chief Video Architect Johan Janssen during a talk at November’s SC16 conference in Salt Lake City. FPGAs are well suited to video acceleration and deliver better compute density than cloud servers based on microprocessors. One example Janssen gave during his talk shows a Xilinx Virtex UltraScale VU190 FPGA improving the video-stream encoding rate from 3 to 60fps while cutting power consumption by half when compared to the performance of a popular Intel Xeon microprocessor executing the same encoding task. In power-constrained data centers, that’s a 40x efficiency improvement with no increase in electrical or heat load. In other words, it costs a lot less operationally to use FPGA for video encoding in data centers.


Here’s the 7-minute video of Janssen’s talk at SC16:
