Elsa® Acceleration Software for Media Encoding, Transcoding and Encryption

Elsa Acceleration Software provides the acceleration for Media Encoding, Transcoding and Encryption in a flexible FPGA architecture. It can be used to offload video streaming and media processing services for cloud-based platform (PaaS) or Data Center servers with significantly faster results and lower power consumption.  Elsa provides very low latency media encryption features over multiple streams simultaneously.  Elsa also supports wide range of encoding and transcoding standards, as well as high-speed encryption for Media and Video applications.


Video Encoding

  • Support FPGA-based full video encoding
  • Sub-millisecond latency, reduce lag-time for live video streaming and real-time applications
  • Support wide range encoding standards: H.265/HEVC, VP9 and upcoming VP10/AV1, NETVC codec standards
  • Support simultaneously 32 streams

Video Encryption

  • FPGA-based acceleration for Video Encryption (AES-128/AES-256) for DRM (Digital Right Management) with 10x faster than CPU/GPU

Video Transcoding

  • Fully support Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) streaming with wide range streaming standards:
    • Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS)
    • Microsoft Smooth Streaming
