The encoder block of the Video Codec Unit (VCU) core is a video encoder engine for processing video streams using the H.265 (ISO/IEC 23008-2 high-efficiency video coding) and H.264 (ISO/IEC 14496-10 advanced video coding) standards. It provides complete support for these standards, including support for 8-bit and 10-bit color depth, 4:2:0, 4:2:2, and 4:0:0 Chroma formats and up to 4K UHD at 60 Hz performance.
The VCU encoder block is shown in the following figure.
