HEVC support for ultra latency coding


I want to use the NVENC on the Jetson to encode HEVC / H.265 at ultra low latency. I am wondering whether the API allows to access already coded and finished CTU lines before the access unit is finished in order to stream the CTU lines once they become ready?

In such a case the support of dependent slice fragments would be helpful.

Another question, would it be possible to also feed the camera data correspondingly into the encoder?


Hi Xavier265,

This forum is not for developers developing on the Jetson. Please go to the Jetson community at https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/board/139/jetson-embedded-systems/

Thanks Ryan! Nevertheless I think the question is a more general one. I would not mind if such features are only possible on PC platforms.

So would be CTU line wise processing possible and would be dependent slice fragments available for HEVC with the NVENC?

Thanks Thomas
