Access to hardware video acceleration in Edison?

Jump to solution

The http://download.intel.com/newsroom/kits/atom/comms/pdfs/Intel_Atom_Z34XX_ProductBrief.pdf Tangier product brief mentions hardware accelerated video encoding / decoding, but I'm not finding much information on how to access that functionality. Is there any place that lists how to access the hardware acceleration?

There seem to be scattered documentation on the atom series processors in general:

https://software.intel.com/en-us/android/articles/high-quality-video-compression-integrating-an-h265... Android* - High Quality Video Compression: Integrating an H.265/HEVC Solution for Intel® Atom™-Based Android* Platforms …

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/intelligent-systems/queens-bay/atom-e6xx-video-encoding-paper... Intel® Atom™ Processor E6xx Hardware Accelerated Video Encoding

But I can't find much about the Z34XX Tangier series in the Edison.

Anyone know if there's documentation on how to access the video compression hardware acceleration in the Edison?

Is the best way to just use ffmpeg and rely on the hardware acceleration to be supported in there?

Hi,

We don't have a document that describes specifically how ta access hardware acceleration. I looked for information related to hardware acceleration for the Atom and found some interesting documents but nothing specifically related to the Edison.

What is your goal specifically, to do something like this https://github.com/drejkim/edi-cam GitHub - drejkim/edi-cam: Video streaming on Intel Edison ?

Thanks Intel_Alvarado,

Actually I am trying to use a FLIR Lepton and a USB webcam to do multi-spectral imaging and feature detection. I'm not sure yet if on-edison or broadcast-to-compute-machine will be better, but in general having a way to get the resulting video OFF the edison in a reliable and video-streaming way (right now I just have a hacked up MJPEG http servlet) is needed.

From the repository you linked it seems that relying on FFMPEG to have the optimizations is the current way to go.
