Project

GPU servers accelerate compute-intensive image processing within Video Processing and Transcoding, including scaling, deinterlacing, frame rate conversion, motion vector calculation and other tasks the require computation and analysis to modify or create new video frames. Faster video preprocessing acceleration benefits the output quality of all video output formats, for both transcoding and automated content assembly.

System

Advantech's industrial GPU server AGS-923 was adopted for streaming transcoding, which requires accelerated video processing and H.264 transcoding with GPUs and multicore CPUs. AGS-923 is also suggested for cloud gaming, medical imaging and data analysis, all of which benefit from GPU acceleration. ASR-3100 equipped with 16 NVMe SSD, supports a large amount of hot data processing without latency.

Requirements

  • Deinterlacing
  • Video Image Scaling
  • Frame Rate Conversion
  • Accelerated x264 Encoding
