Hello Tai,

You're most likely referring to the NGCodec FPGA product on AWS, correct?

To the best of my knowledge, it's only accessible on AWS. I'll investigate
further and report back on performance , etc.

The possibility of that being in a commercial product outside AWS is quite
low, so I wouldn't put too much hope into seeing it integrated into
workflows outside AWS.

I've also been looking at Broadcom's VKIL ("Valkyrie"), a PCIe based
offload accelerator for video transcoding currently in use at Facebook and
elsewhere. You may find patchwork on this mailing list from one or more
Broadcom employees on the same. From the look of things, this hardware nah
soon be available to the general public and data center integrators for
video transcode offload accelerators, in a fashion similar to Intel's (now
deprecated) Visual Compute Accelerator.
