I was wondering if Intel could provide any recommendations for a low cost solution for the following task:
1. Obtain a 1080p camera feed from a HDMI/DVI source (e.g. This could be done via a inexpensive "game" capture device which converts it into USB data (UVC) or via custom hardware which can do this conversion.
2. Encode the stream into a compressed format (e.g. H264).
3. Stream this feed securely (encrypted) to a cloud service e.g. Amazon Kinesis.
A Rasberry Pi 3 is insufficiently powerful to do real time encoding and streaming at the same time. For example, one thing I was wondering is if Intel provide a compute stick that can be used for video encoding which might facilitate this.
Thanks for any help,
Dearest Benjamin, the answer is that Intel CPUs can perform video encoding but with added GPU acceleration, performance is definitely better. I encourage you to browse https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark.html and find a system which suits your needs.
There is also the intel compute stick you can explore.
