Xilinx a acquis NGCodec, une start-up qui propose une technologie d’encodage vidéo puissante qui, lorsqu’elle est associée à une plate-forme d’accélération Xilinx, fournit une qualité visuelle inégalée avec des besoins en bande passante inférieurs aux autres solutions du marché, selon le fournisseur américain de FPGA.

Xilinx has acquired NGCodec. NGCodec offers a powerful, differentiated video encoding technology that – when paired with a Xilinx acceleration platform – delivers greater visual quality at lower bandwidth requirements than any other solution in the market, according to the FPGA supplier.

With NGCodec’s team of engineers, Xilinx will be able to provide even more video capabilities to their data center customers.

NGCodec technology pushes the envelope on the latest cloud video encoding standards, including H.265/HEVC, VP9 and soon, AV1. With 70 percent of internet traffic coming from video streaming and growing at a rate of 50 percent year-over-year – the market forecast for cloud video processing estimates a SAM of $1.6 billion by 2023.

NGCodec has been embraced across top cloud video streaming providers. Xilinx has been a technology partner and investor in NGCodec since 2016. NGCodec has about 35 employees and is based in Sunnyvale, Calif., with a second office in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
