AM571x Dual H264 Encode

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: AM5718, DM388, TMS320DM8165, TMS320DM6467T

I'm trying to select a TI processor for a new product. I'm looking for dual H264 encode the main one being 1080p50 with a secondary at 576p25.

I have looked at the AM5718 with the IVA HD co-processor. Just considering pixels processed this should be possible as the IVA HD can do 1080p60 but I realise there are a lot of other overheads in running two encodes. The DM388 is another possibility with the HDVICP2 if it can spilt the processing similarly.

Any one tried such a thing?

Otherwise we may have to consider a DM8127 using it's HDVICP2 and the DSP C64xx to do a software encode.

or TMS320DM8165 (TMS320DM6467T) to get two HDVICP2 encoders. But it seems a bit of overkill.
