The video codec unit (VCU) provides multi-standard video encoding and decoding, including support for the high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) H.265 and advanced video coding (AVC) H.264 standards. The unit contains both encode (compress) and decode (decompress) functions, and is capable of simultaneous encode and decode.
The VCU is an integrated block in the PL of selected Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs with no direct connections to the PS.
