Video Processing Unit - Module

Codensity T408 is a U.2 form-factor video transcoder containing a single Codensity G4 ASIC.

Operating in x86 and Arm-based servers, T408 enables video streaming services and platforms to move from software-based transcoding to hardware-based transcoding to power real-time video applications at a TCO that is 10x less than CPU-based solutions.
