Codensity T432 contains four Codensity G4 ASICs in a PCIe card. Operating in x86 and Arm-based servers, the T432 enables video streaming services to easily move from software to hardware-based encoding to power real-time video applications at a 10x lower TCO.
T432 modules take full advantage of ASIC-based video processors inside the Codensity G4 SoC technology to support an H.264 and HEVC transcoding throughput of 240 fps of 4K UHD video, or 16x 1080p60 streams per T432 module. At lower resolutions, even more, simultaneous streams can be supported.
By offloading complex encode/decode processing to the ASIC, the T432 video transcoders minimize host CPU utilization. The result is a significant improvement in real-time transcoding density compared to any software or GPU-based transcoding solution.
Available in the popular PCIe form factor, the T432 offers a simple upgrade path from CPU based software to ASIC video encoding on any x86 or Arm server.
Many video processing and transcoding applications developers are familiar with FFmpeg and GStreamer, two open-source software libraries offering a vast suite of video processing functions. The T432 includes highly efficient FFmpeg and GStreamer compatible SDKs, allowing operators to apply an FFmpeg/libavcodec or GStreamer patch to complete the integration.
The libavcodec patch on the host server functions between the T432 NVME interface and the FFmpeg software layer, allowing existing video transcoding applications to achieve quick and significant performance and capacity upgrades.
Each T432 PCIe module consumes just 28W of power at full load. Plug four T432 modules into a server, and you have a highly efficient video transcoding server capable of 64 simultaneous 1080p60 live streams.
T432 is based on four NETINT Codensity G4 ASICs with support for H.264 and HEVC video encoding up to 4K resolution with 10-bit HDR.
The NETINT T432 Video Transcoder plugs easily into x86 or Arm enterprise-class servers for an easy upgrade path from software to hardware video performance.
The high throughput of the T432 enables ultra-low latency encoding of 16 broadcast quality 1080p60 streams per PCIe slot.
