Table of Contents

1 Overview

This module enables capture of video and audio data from an HDMI-Rx subsystem implemented in the PL. The video and audio data can be displayed through the HDMI-Tx subsystem implemented in the PL. The module can stream-out and stream-in live captured video and audio through an Ethernet interface at ultra-low latencies using Sync IP. This module supports four video streams using AXI broadcaster at capture side and mixer at display side for NV12 pixel format. It also supports single-stream audio.

The VCU encoder and decoder operate in slice mode. An input frame is divided into multiple slices (8 or 16) horizontally. The encoder generates a slice_done interrupt at every end of the slice. Generated NAL unit data can be passed to a downstream element immediately without waiting for the frame_done interrupt. The VCU decoder also starts processing data as soon as one slice of data is ready in its circular buffer instead of waiting for complete frame data. The Sync IP does an AXI transaction-level tracking so that the producer and consumer can be synchronized at the granularity of AXI transactions instead of granularity at the video buffer level. Sync IP is responsible for synchronizing buffers between Capture DMA and VCU encoder as both work on same buffer.

The capture element (FB write DMA) writes video buffers in raster-scan order. SyncIP monitors the buffer level while the capture element is writing into DRAM and allows the encoder to read input buffer data if the requested data is already written by DMA, otherwise it blocks the encoder until DMA completes its writes. On the decoder side, the VCU decoder writes decoded video buffer data into DRAM in block-raster scan order and displays reads data in raster-scan order. To avoid display under-run problems, software ensures a phase difference of "~frame_period/2", so that decoder is ahead compare to display.

  • HDMI-Rx capture pipeline implemented in the PS.

  • Stream-In from network or internet.

Sinks:

1.2.1 GStreamer Application (vcu_gst_app)

The vcu_gst_app is a command-line multi-threaded Linux application. The command-line application requires an input configuration file (input.cfg) to be provided in plain text.

Run below modetest command to set CRTC configurations for 4kp60:

1 $ modetest -D a0070000.v_mix -s 39:3840x2160-60@BG24

Run below modetest command to set CRTC configurations for 4kp30:

1 $ modetest -D a0070000.v_mix -s 39:3840x2160-30@BG24

Execution of the application is shown below:

1 $ vcu_gst_app /media/card/config/<path to *.cfg file>

Example:

  • Make sure HDMI-Rx should be configured to 4kp60 mode while running below example pipelines.

  • Low latency(LLP1/LLP2) video and audio+video stream-in pipelines are not supported in vcu_gst_app.

  • The vcu_gst_app uses RTP+RTCP streaming and opus encoder for LLP1/LLP2 audio+video stream-out use-cases.

  • All single-stream serial/streaming pipelines have audio configuration ON by default. To execute only display pipeline, change the Audio Enable property to FALSE in the configuration file.

Above RTP+RTCP audio+video stream-in pipeline is applicable for streaming port = 5004 only. If the streaming port has changed, the respective port changes should be made in the pipeline to work. Refer to port description in streaming configuration parameters to understand how video and audio rtp/rtcp port numbers are assigned in LLL1/LLP2 audio+video stream-out pipelines.

For LLP1/LLP2 Multi-stream HEVC serial and stream-out use-cases (2-4kp30, 2-1080p60, 4-1080p60), use ENC_EXTRA_OP_BUFFERS=10 variable before vcu_gst_app command. The sample pipeline is given below:

1 $ ENC_EXTRA_OP_BUFFERS=10 vcu_gst_app /media/card/config/2-4kp30/Display/2_4kp30_HEVC_12_5_Mbps.cfg

The above macro is recommended to use for LLP1/LLP2 multi-stream HEVC use-cases only.

To measure the latency of the pipeline, run the below command. The latency data is huge, so dump it to a file.

1 $ GST_DEBUG="GST_TRACER:7" GST_TRACERS="latency" GST_DEBUG_FILE=/run/latency.log vcu_gst_app /media/card/config/<path to *.cfg file>

Use GST_TRACERS="interlatency" in the case of Xilinx’s ultra-low-latency NV12 audio+video stream-out pipelines.

2 V4l2 Capture Control Software Encoder Application

2.1 Overview

The primary goal of the v4l2 capture control software encoder application is to demonstrate Xilinx’s Ultra Low-Latency feature using the VCU ctrlsw APIs. This application (v4l2_capture_ctrlsw_enc) is an enhanced version of normal VCU ctrlsw app (ctrlsw_encoder). Normal ctrlsw_encoder application is only capable of file-based encoding, while this app captures data from the HDMI source and does stream-out using Gstreamer libraries.

The v4l2 capture ctrlsw encoder application has the following features:

  • Stream out encoded data captured from the HDMI source using RTP streaming.

  • Record encoded data captured from HDMI source to a file.

  • Supports various encoding options, can be set by config file as an input to the application, similar as to how config file is used for ctrlsw_encoder.

  • Supports various latency modes e.g. Xilinx’s Ultra Low Latency (LLP2) mode via --xlnx-slicelat and Low Latency (LLP1) mode via --slicelat, can be set via command line

The following figure shows one of the use cases (Xilinx Low-Latency streaming):

As shown in the above figure, the app performs the below list of operations in case of Xilinx’s Ultra Low Latency (LLP2) mode:

  1. The application enables syncip and programs address ranges as per input video format and resolution.

  2. Application calls VIDIOC_DQBUF and sends empty input buffer to encoder using early dequeue mechanism.

  3. The encoder receives this empty buffer and starts generating the read requests.

  4. Start DMA command is issued to v4l2 capture driver and capture starts filling the buffer.

  5. SyncIP blocks the encoder until framebuffer-write is done writing data corresponding to the read request made by the encoder.

  6. Once the encoder is unblocked, it starts encoding data and generating output slices corresponding to unblocked input read requests.

  7. Encoded data is feed to Gstreamer AppSrc, and it passed to UDP sink through the RTP payloader to stream-out the encoded data.

  8. Similarly, for consecutive buffers v4l2 programs SyncIP, submits buffer to encoder using VIDIOC_DQBUF and syncip blocks the encoder until v4l2 has written sufficient data. This way syncip maintains the synchronization between the producer (v4l2) and consumer (encoder).

In the case of --slicelat (llp1) there will be no syncip in the input path to the encoder and the application gets the input frame filled by v4l2 using VIDIOC_DQBUF which is passed to the encoder. The encoder then reads the input frame and generates output slices as per the number of slices set in the configuration file which are then streamed out as depicted in the above section.

The below figure shows the v4l2 capture control software encoder application software block diagram:

2.3 Build Flow

This tutorial shows how to build the above v4l2 control software encoder application’s AR package to generate Linux and boot image using the PetaLinux build tool. It assumes that the $TRD_HOME environment variable is set as given below.

It is recommended to follow the build steps in sequence.

1 $ export TRD_HOME=</path/to/downloaded/zipfile>/rdf0428-zcu106-vcu-trd-2020-2
  • Source the Petalinux tool-chain using the below command

1 2 $ source <path/to/petalinux-installer>/tool/petalinux-v2020.2-final/settings.sh $ echo $PETALINUX

Post-PetaLinux installation $PETALINUX environment variable should be set.

  • Create a PetaLinux project.

1 2 $ cd $TRD_HOME/apu/vcu_petalinux_bsp $ petalinux-create -t project -s xilinx-vcu-zcu106-v2020.2-final.bsp
  • Configure the PetaLinux project.

1 2 $ cd xilinx-vcu-zcu106-v2020.2-final $ petalinux-config --get-hw-description=$TRD_HOME/pl/prebuild/zcu106_llp2_audio_nv12/
  • If the Vivado project is modified, the user is expected to configure the bsp with the modified .xsa file and build. e.g.

1 $ petalinux-config --get-hw-description=$TRD_HOME/pl/build/zcu106_llp2_audio_nv12/
  • Extract the downloaded AR package in the petalinux project (xilinx-vcu-zcu106-v2020.2-final/) directory using below command

1 $ unzip -o <path-to-AR-package>/vcu_trd_v4l2_ctrlsw_enc_AR76096.zip

By default, the GStreamer support is enabled in v4l2 control software application. To Disable the GStreamer support, Update the ENABLE_GST = "1" flag to ENABLE_GST = "0" in project-spec/meta-user/recipes-apps/v4l2-ctrlsw-enc/v4l2-ctrlsw-enc.bb. GStreamer support is required to run stream-out use-cases using v4l2 control software application, on disabling the GStreamer support, application will be forced to run record use-case.

  • Create a soft link of llp2 psddr nv12 design dtsi file to system-user.dtsi using below command

1 2 3 $ cd project-spec/meta-user/recipes-bsp/device-tree/files/ $ ln -sf vcu_llp2_psddr_hdmi.dtsi system-user.dtsi $ cd ../../../../../
  • Build the PetaLinux project

1 $ petalinux-build
  • Build SDK components to use it as sysroot for application development (Optional).

1 2 $ petalinux-build --sdk $ petalinux-package --sysroot
  • Create a boot image (BOOT.BIN) including FSBL, ATF, bitstream, and u-boot.

1 2 $ cd images/linux $ petalinux-package --boot --fsbl zynqmp_fsbl.elf --u-boot u-boot.elf --pmufw pmufw.elf --fpga system.bit
  • Copy the generated boot image and Linux image to the SD card directory.

1 $ cp BOOT.BIN image.ub boot.scr $TRD_HOME/images/vcu_llp2_hdmi_nv12/

2.4 Run Flow

Following section assume that user has already done board-setup, prepared sd-card with built images and boot the board.

The v4l2_capture_ctrlsw_enc is a command-line Linux application. It requires an input configuration file to be provided in the plain text with the necessary encoder configuration options.

Run below command to check all available configuration options:

1 2 3 $ v4l2_capture_ctrlsw_enc --help-cfg OR $ v4l2_capture_ctrlsw_enc --help-cfg-json

Using above configuration options, create a required configuration file according to your use-case. You can also use sample configuration files from /usr/local/etc/v4l2-capture-ctrlsw-enc/sample_cfg/ and tweak parameters as required.

Below are some example pipelines using v4l2_capture_ctrlsw_enc.

3 Other Information

3.1 Known Issues

3.2 Limitations

3.3 Optimum VCU Encoder parameters for use-cases

Video streaming:

  • Video streaming use-case requires very stable bitrate graph for all pictures.

  • It is good to avoid periodic large Intra pictures during the encoding session

  • Low-latency rate control (hardware RC) is the preferred control-rate for video streaming, it tries to maintain equal amount frame sizes for all pictures.

  • Good to avoid periodic Intra frames instead use low-delay-p (IPPPPP…)

  • VBR is not a preferred mode of streaming.

Performance: AVC Encoder settings:

  • It is preferred to use 8 slices only for better AVC encoder performance.

  • AVC standard does not support Tile mode processing which results in the processing of MB rows sequentially for entropy coding.

Quality: Low bitrate AVC encoding:

  • Enable profile=high and use qp-mode=auto for low-bitrate encoding use-cases.

  • The high profile enables 8x8 transform which results in better video quality at low bitrates.

5 Appendix B - HDMI-Rx/Tx Link-up and GStreamer Commands

This section covers configuration of HDMI-Rx using media-ctl utility and HDMI-Tx using modetest utility, along with demonstrating HDMI-Rx/Tx link-up issues and steps to switch HDMI-Rx resolution. It also contains sample GStreamer Low-Latency NV12 and Xilinx’s Ultra Low-Latency NV12 Audio+Video pipelines for Display, Stream-In and Stream-Out use-cases.

  • HDMI source can be locked to any resolution. Run the below command for all media nodes to print media device topology where mediaX represents different media nodes. In the topology, log look for the v_hdmi_rx_ss string to identify the HDMI input source media node.

1 $ media-ctl -p -d /dev/mediaX
  • To check the link status, resolution and video node of the HDMI input source, run below media-ctl command where mediaX indicates media node for the HDMI input source.

1 $ media-ctl -p -d /dev/mediaX
  • When HDMI source is connected to 4kp60 resolution, it shows:

Notes for gst-launch-1.0 commands:

  • Video node for HDMI-Rx source can be checked using media-ctl command. Run below media-ctl command to check video node for HDMI-Rx source where media0 indicates media node for HDMI input source.

1 $ media-ctl -p -d /dev/media0
  • Make sure HDMI-Rx media pipeline is configured for 4kp60 resolution and source/sink have the same color format for connected nodes. For NV12 format, run below media-ctl commands to set resolution and format of HDMI scaler node where media0 indicates media node for HDMI input source.

  • When HDMI Input Source is NVIDIA SHIELD

1 2 $ media-ctl -d /dev/media0 -V "\"a0080000.v_proc_ss\":0 [fmt:RBG888_1X24/3840x2160 field:none]" $ media-ctl -d /dev/media0 -V "\"a0080000.v_proc_ss\":1 [fmt:VYYUYY8_1X24/3840x2160 field:none]"

Make sure NVIDIA SHIELD is configured for 4K resolution and RBG888_1X24 format.

  • Follow the below steps to switch the HDMI-Rx resolution from 1080p60 to 4kp60.

    • Check current HDMI input source resolution (1080p60) by following the steps mentioned earlier to check HDMI resolution using media-ctl command

    • Run vcu_gst_app for current HDMI resolution (1080p60) by executing the following command.

1 $ vcu_gst_app /media/card/config/input.cfg
  • Below configurations needs to be set in input.cfg for non-LLP2 HDMI-1080p60 use-case.

  • Change Resolution of HDMI Input Source from 1080p60 to 4kp60 by following below steps.

    • Set the HDMI source resolution to 4kp60 (Homepage → Settings → Display & Sound → Resolution → change to 4kp60).

    • Save the configuration to take place the change.

  • Verify the desired HDMI Input Source Resolution (4kp60) by following the above-mentioned steps.

  • If HDMI-Tx link-up issue is observed after Linux booting, use the following command to get the blue screen on HDMI-Tx for 4kp60.

1 $ modetest -D a0070000.v_mix -s 39:3840x2160-60@BG24

  • Video0 in the each gst-launch pipelines indicates a video node for the input source.

  • Make sure HDMI-Rx should be configured to 4kp60 mode, while running below example pipelines.

  • LLP1/LLP2 video / audio+video stream-in pipelines are not supported using vcu_gst_app.

  • For LLP1/LLP2 Multi-stream HEVC serial and stream-out use-cases (2-4kp30, 2-1080p60, 4-1080p60), use ENC_EXTRA_OP_BUFFERS=10 variable before gst-launch-1.0 command.

  • For LLP1/LLP2 Multi-stream serial and stream-in use-cases (2-4kp30, 2-1080p60, 4-1080p60), use internal-entropy-buffers=3 property in decoder.

  • latency-time and buffer-time in Audio+Video serial and streaming pipelines are very aggressive here compared to upstream GStreamer default values to get optimize latency for LLP2 Audio+Video pipeline. You can tune and experiment these parameters in case of any issue with audio/video sync, audio/video packet drop and audio distortion for your use-case.
