Hot answers tagged encoding
There are many hardware options including Intel media SDK, FPGA options, nvidi, ASIC solutions, elgato, etc. But for my money, I prefer quality. The software solutions, especially x264, perform WAY (WAY) better as measured by visual quality by file size ratio. As for Quality per watt in terms of encoding, you cant beat a good ASIC.
