The NVIDIA Encoder (NVENC) API enables software developers to access the high-performance hardware H.264 and HEVC (H.265) video encoder in Kepler and Maxwell class NVIDIA GPUs. NVENC provides high-quality video encoding that is faster and more power efficient in comparison to equivalent CUDA-based or CPU-based encoders. By using dedicated hardware for the video encoding task, the GPU CUDA cores and/or the CPU are available for other compute-intensive tasks. NVENC on GeForce hardware can support a maximum of 2 concurrent streams per system. NVENC for GRID, Tesla and certain Quadro GPUs (see below) can support as many streams as possible up to maximum NVENC encoder rate limit and available video memory.
