NVENC support on the jetson AGX xavier

Hi, is NVENC supported on the jetson agx board?
Browsing through the fourms it looks like that all implementation on the board is different from the desktop versions and there is no NVENC support rather, to encode/decode using the GPU we have to use the jetson_multimedia_api that in tern uses the V4L2. This was the response for the nano:

Hi @awaid.shaheen,

Welcome to the NVIDIA Developer forums! I am going to move this topic over to the Jetson Xavier category for better visibility.

Hi,
NVENC(hardware encoding) is supported on Xavier and you can run it through jetson_multimedia_api and gstreamer. Please take a look at document:
