Obioma Okehie on Increasing the Video Compression Throughput on FPGAs with the Help of MPEG-5 Part 2 (LCEVC)

In a new Accelize blogpost, V-Nova’s own Engineering Lead, Obioma Okehie talks about increasing the video compression throughput on FPGAs with the help of MPEG-5 Part 2, low-complexity enhancement video coding (LCEVC).

“LCEVC is an enhancement aimed at improving the compression and computational performance of any given codec. For example, an LCEVC-enabled HEVC UHD encoder can be implemented on a single FPGA device, instead of 4. It does so by leveraging a 1080p real-time HEVC ‘base’ solution and uses the LCEVC enhancement to produce a resolution upgrade to UHD. In effect, this FGPA solution contains two separate codecs working in tandem to produce a real-time UHD HEVC encoder.”
