This poster describes the delivery pipeline in the Bagadus soccer analysis system. The delivery pipeline takes a real-time stitched panorama video, and generates a personal virtual camera that can be controlled by the clients (end-users). An important component in this pipeline is the H.264 encoding of the personalized virtual view before delivery. By using Nvidia's NVENC hardware encoder, we are able to maintain the same visual quality as the software x264 encoder with a reduction in both CPU utilization and encode latency.
