From looking at the IMX8M-Plus documentation, it's stated that the VPU encoder supports up to 1080p60. It seems as though the Hantro VC8000E encoder is being used, which states support for 4K encoding.
Does anyone know why the IMX8M-Plus doesn't support 4K encoding? or does the hardware support it but not the software yet? is it planned for a future release?
Any clarification would be helpful!
Thanks for the response.
I'm aware of this and I have 1080p encoding working fine. My question is why doesn't the IMX8M-Plus support 4k encoding when the actual Hantro VC8000E encoder supports it?
Seems that the hardware is capable at least. Any ideas?
Can you please clarify on your response?
Yes, the VPU is being used as an encoder and the encoder is Hantro VC8000E, correct? this has capabilities of 4K, yet the IMX8M-Plus can do up to 1080p. Why is it that the IMX8M-Plus is unable to utilise the full capabilities of the Hantro encoder? Can you clarify what the limitation is?
