DM365/DM368 Codec Availability Schedule and Roadmap With Basic Performance Information

Codecs download link and misc information

Readme for integrating the codec in DVSDK 2.10 can be found at DM365_codecs_DVSDK_2_10_integration


For more information on Ver 2.0 codec, see: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/H.264_DM36x_Ver_2.0_Codec

For migrating/integrating ver 2.0 codec, see: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Migration/Integration_Guide_for_DM36x_H.264_version_2.x_codecs


  • All s/w component of DM365 are 100% compatible with DM368 and vice versa. This includes all DVSDK components viz codecs, Framewortk Component, demos et.al.

  • DM368 codec performance: Performance of only H.264 codecs have been updated for DM368 based on new Ver 2.0 codecs.

For other codecs viz Mpeg2, Mpeg4, VC1, exisitng DM365 codec binaries would run on DM368, hence the performance would be prorated. An approximate factor of 1.26 can be used to scale the performance form DM365 300Mhz device to DM368.

* These numbers are based on practical use case, if allowed free run, the given resolution can give higher fps
** There is no functional difference between 270MHz and 300HMz mode codecs. 300HMz mode can be used to meet more uses cases and performance improvement. There is a performance gain of ~10% in moving from 270MHz mode to 300HMz mode
*** The release schedule is based on the status when this page was modified. There is no guarantee of accuracy, for latest update, please check with TI.

Notes

  • The above performance numbers are indicative performance of DM365 and DM368 codecs. The actual performance may vary depending on individual stream complexity and tool set.
  • Performance of only H.264 codecs have been updated for DM368 based on new Ver 2.0 H.264 codecs. For other codecs viz Mpeg2, Mpeg4, VC1, the performance would be prorated as the exisitng DM365 codec binaries would run on DM368. An approximate factor of 1.26 can be used to scale the performance form DM365 300Mhz device to DM368.
  • For details of tools and feature of each codec, please refer to codec data sheet.
  • Host ARM926 utilization will be approximately ~25MHz for single channel encode and decode.
  • The performance number can change based on system load. The above numbers are based on simple use case consisting for just capture and display for encode and decode respectively.
  • When the codec is marked as available this means that it should be present in the latest available DVSDK.
  • The multi channel codec capabilities can be leveraged with the DM365 DVR reference design which uses the TVP5158 to capture multiple channels of video simultaneously, additionally this could be tested on the EVM board with DVTB, though not in a real time fashion. The GStreamer audio/video framework port to TI's dm365 may also be leveraged.
