NVENC SDK Access (License Key Acquisition)


My company is in the process of implementing various hardware encoder APIs into our product. We are currently looking to support NVENC for consumer Kepler GPUs, especially since the beta release of ShadowPlay has shown its capabilities on those cards.

However, the SDK is limited to workstation Kepler GPUs for the automatic license key detection. Where can we acquire a license key for development? We cannot seem to find any information regarding this which we believe is a massive oversight on your part since both Intel’s Quick Sync and AMD’s VCE are easily accessible as well as free to use.

We hope that this post will not fall on deaf ears. Looking forward to a prompt response.
