NGCodec uses Amazon EC2 F1 instances with custom FPGAs running 4k Video Compression

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 30, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — AWS re:Invent 2016, – NGCodec® (Sunnyvale, CA), a pioneering company focused on FPGA-based H.265/HEVC video codec development, today announced that it will use the new Amazon EC2 F1 instance in the development of RealityCodec™ for hardware-accelerated AWS Cloud-based video encoding and VR / AR processing.

AWS customers will be able to buy RealityCodec when it becomes available in the AWS Marketplace and run it on Amazon EC2 F1, offering ultra-high-performance video compression (at up to 4K resolution) and ultra-low sub-frame latency cloud-based VR and AR. By running the compute function in the cloud, customers can send only the graphics pixels in the form of a video feed to the HMD (Head Mounted Display), achieving higher performance, lower cost, and longer battery life for the consumer VR/AR hardware.

NGCodec's RealityCodec technology runs on NGCodec AMI, which runs on Amazon EC2 F1 in the cloud, presenting significant advantages compared to traditional software encoding, including:

  • Massive acceleration and efficiency compared to traditional CPU/GPU instances
  • Higher-quality video for live encoding
  • Lower running costs and flexibility / upgradability, just like traditional software

"AWS is breaking ground as the first public cloud to add FPGA-enabled instances with Amazon EC2 F1, which offers significant acceleration over CPU and GPU instance types," said Oliver Gunasekara, CEO & co-founder, NGCodec Inc. "Many large media workflows, including on-demand and live streaming content, are moving to the AWS Cloud. These can now have all the benefits of FPGA acceleration in the AWS ecosystem."

NGCodec will demonstrate using cloud-based FPGA acceleration for live H.265/HEVC video encoding on December 1, 2016 11am at the AWS re:Invent 2016 event in Las Vegas, Nevada. (CMP317 Session)
