The move to advanced video codecs like AV1 has created a software squeeze as codec complexity is increasing faster than the performance optimization of software encoders. NETINT Technologies announced today that it achieved a first for the video streaming industry by unveiling a family of ASIC-based AV1 video transcoders packaged in a 2.5″ U.2 NVMe and PCIe Add-In-Card (AIC) form factor. This unique solution is designed so that video operators can easily upgrade their x86 or Arm-based data center servers for hardware-based video encoding.
