Nvidia TK1 Codec Capability

We are working on Video conferencing application on Jetson platform. Few clarifications on TK1 Encoder capability.

  1. Is the TK1 video encoding processor the same as on Nvidias desktop graphics cards?
  2. If different - what is different? Motion Estimation processing, quantization update algorithm, profile levels, processing time, advanced coding options etc etc??


Hi Gomathisankar,

Regardign the video codec capability, please check the the details from R21.5 Feature List document.
You also can find the Video processor information from the TK1 TRM document.
