Tx2 hardware support max bit depth for video ? 8-bit, 10-bit / 12-bit?

Hi nvidia,

I am using Tx2 hardware with 3.2 jetpack, what is the max bit depth it can handle?
like for :
a) capturing YUV or RGB 8-bit, 10bit, 12bit?
b) Decoding 8-bit, 10bit, 12bit?
c) Encoding RAW data with bit depth of 8-bit, 10bit, 12bit? (to H264)
c) Encoding RAW data with bit depth of 8-bit, 10bit, 12bit? (to H265)
Note: i am using tegra multimedia API’s for encoding and capturing.

Regards,
raza

Hi meRaza,
For tegra multimedia API with jetpack 3.2(r28.1), it supports 8-bit only.

Hi Danell,

Thanks for quick reply. i have few more quires.
Is their any way to switch to higher bit depth like 10 or 12.
Does the Tx2 hardware supports other then 8-bit… for encoding and decoding ?

Hi meRaza,
It can decode 10-bit HEVC on r28.1/TX2

It is specific to gstreamer.
For MMAPI we support 8-bit only and currently there is not plan to support 10-bit/12-bit.
