are there hardware h.264 encoder sample collections out there?

are there any hardware/asic encoders out there that even somewhat approach the upper half of x264's quality out there? and if so are there any samples, hopefully of commonly encoded test footage (or footage you can do encode tests yourself)? or better yet, collections of samples from multiple models, vendors?

I doubt there are good collections of this kind of thing.

I'll say that yes, generally hardware encoders can be quite good these days, especially from well regarded companies like Ateme and Harmonic.

It kind of depends what you mean by hardware tho. Most hardware encoders are for live encoding, and many actually run on x86 these days.

Do you specifically mean live encoders, or do you mean hardware as in "must be on an asic / fpga" and may be live or vod?

i'll take any and all samples, from live encoders or not (just as long as they run at decent speeds). the more popular/"common" the better. just trying to see a range of what's out there
