AMD Xilinx Video SDK AMI with EKS support for VT1 Instances (AL2)

By: AMD Xilinx Latest Version: 3.0.0

Product Overview

The AMD Xilinx Video SDK is a complete software stack allowing users to seamlessly leverage the hardware accelerated features of AMD Xilinx video codecs and enable high-density real-time transcoding for live streaming video service providers, OEMs, and Content Delivery Network (CDNs). Included in the AMD Xilinx Video SDK is a pre-compiled version of FFmpeg and GStreamer which integrates key video transcoding plug-ins, enabling simple hardware offloading of compute-intensive workloads (such as video decoding, scaling, and encoding) using these popular tools.

The AMD Xilinx Video SDK also provides a C-based application programming interface (API) which facilitates the integration of AMD-Xilinx video codec transcoding capabilities in proprietary frameworks.

In addition to enhanced OS/kernel support and bug fixes, the 3.0.0 release brings with it ultra low latency (ULL) encoding, dynamic GOP, min/max frame quantization parameter (QP) bounding, and support for updates using package feeds. Visit What's New of its release notes ( for the full list of enhancements.

The 3.0 release includes support for the popular GStreamer multimedia framework with the addition of several plugins to access the accelerated video transcoding capabilities.

For Kubernetes deployments, please upgrade the plugin to version 1.1.0 before deploying this 3.0.0 EKS AMI. Refer to for more detail.
