    Intel Euclid: hardware MJPEG or H264 compression?

    cga

      Does the Intel Euclid CPU, GPU, or ASICs provide hardware support for any form of image compression, such as H264 or MJPEG?

      If so, how do I access it?

       

      I see the Intel Realsense SDK provides H264 compression for the color image and LZ0 compression for other images:

      https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2015/10/15/how-to-record-and-playback-streaming-sequences-in-intel-realsense-sdk

      I see the use of the LZ4 package and mentions of h264 in the realsense_sdk_zr300

       

      I see that a Intel Gen8 LP GPU can do H264 encoding with an Intel product Intel Media Server Studio 2017 for Linux.

      Is this software the best option?

       

      Thanks,

      Chris

          Hi cga,

          Thank you for your patience. The compression formats for Euclid can be accessed in two ways.

          They can be seen through the Configuration tab of the web UI as described in page 12 of the euclid-operating-guide-final.pdf. When you run a scenario, for example, 6DOF, and you view the Configurable Nodes in the Configuration tab, you will see /camera/color/image_raw/compressed, among others. Select /camera/color/image_raw/compressed and you will be able to edit the compression format, either jpeg or png, and the setting for each. You can also access this node as a rostopic in the command line. If you are familiar with ROS you can manipulate this node through the command line.

          Regards,

            Hi cga,

            Do you still need assistance with this case?
