Does anyone know of a PCI card solution that will let me encode MPEG2 faster than just using software?
I'm helping a company that has a ton of material to encode for DVD.
All the material are files and not tape based, so a hardware box that uses tape to tape or tape to computer won't work. That's why I thought a PCI card would help.
Digital Rapids, Matrox, Grass Valley, Bluefish and a few others make encoder acceleration cards to do specifically what you're asking. I don't have specifics on them but you should easily be able to find info by searching those companies specifically, and in general by googling MPG2 hardware encoding or something like that.
