NGCODEC’S HARDWARE ENCODING PROVIDES CLOUD GAMING WITH THE LOWEST AVAILABLE LATENCY, THE BEST VISUAL QUALITY, AND THE LOWEST BANDWIDTH ALL WHILE USING MODERN, INDUSTRY STANDARD CODECS
Today cloud game streaming latencies are high – over 150ms in best case scenarios. And getting to low latency can mean using primitive video encoding, increasing the required bandwidth and degrading visual quality. RealityCodec helps cloud gaming providers dramatically improve the gamer’s experience by achieving sub-frame latency at 2K and 4K resolutions.
ULTRA LOW LATENCY
Meeting the 20ms motion to photon latency budget target for VR. Supporting 4ms video encode, providing quarter frame encoding time at 90FPS.
MOST CONTEMPORARY CODECS
Support for H.265/HEVC and VP9 with announced support for AV1 and H.264/AVC all with highest available video quality from a hardware encoder
30% better compression with H.265/HEVC and VP9 compared to existing H.264/AVC encoders targeting live workloads.
The three biggest contributors to latency are the display interface, the network interface, and the computational cost of encoding graphics to video. RealityCodec achieves sub-frame latency by dramatically improving encode speed, while achieving with the visual quality gamers expect. In an integrated solution we can further reduce latency by improving the entire chain from encode to decode to display through improved synchronization.
Using modern video codecs like H.265/HEVC, VP9 and AV1, solutions based on RealityCodec are compatible with the broadest range of devices and browsers.
