This module enables the capture of YUV444 8-bit and 10-bit video from HDMI-RX. The video can be displayed on HDMI-TX or DisplayPort and recorded on SD cards or USB/SATA drives. The module can stream-in or stream-out encoded data through an Ethernet interface. This module supports up to single-stream 4kp30 YU24 and X403 formats.

AMD Zynq™ UltraScale+™ VCU hardware does not support YUV444 encode/decode processing. Only YUV 4:0:0, 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 sub-sampling modes are supported. This feature enables encoding yuv444p (single planar) video frames using the VCU, reading them as YUV4:0:0 of width x 3*height buffer. Similarly. at the decoder side, the VCU decoder output reads them as width x 3*height YUV4:0:0 raw video frame, but the display treats the buffer as a YUV444 planar buffer. This feature also includes enhancing FB_RD, FB_WR IP/drivers and V4l2 and DRM frameworks to support YUV444 planar buffer format.
