GRENOBLE, France, February 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

HEVC (aka "High Efficiency Video Coding") is the next generation video standard, developed by the JCT-VC team. JCT-VC is a joint team between MPEG and VCEG. The HEVC standard, finalized in January 2013, will bring 50% bit rate savings compared to equivalent H.264/AVC encodings.

At the Mobile World Congress, Allegro DVT will present on its booth:

HEVC/H.265 Hardware Decoding IP, the world first HEVC/H.265 hardware decoder IP, based on an unprecedented multi-core architecture. This gives our implementation the following key competitive advantages:

  • support decoding of 4K resolutions at 60Hz and beyond.
  • target decoding performance is met at a lower operating frequency, allowing a high level of power savings, critical to mobile applications.
  • the multi-core architecture doesn't add any constraints on the encoders such as slicing or tiling pictures, which prevents adding artifacts and allows the best possible video quality.

H.264 Hardware Encoding & Codec IPs, with best-in-class video quality, minimized silicon area, optimized power consumption and an ultra-low end-to-end latency for Miracast support.

WiGig WDE Codec IP, the most advanced Wireless Display Extension (WDE) codec for next generation 60 GHz wireless technology: 802.11 ad/WiGig.

HEVC/H.265 Compliance Streams, provide HEVC/H.265 decoder manufacturers with the perfect tool for validating their developments, and ensure compliance with this upcoming video standard.

Please come and book a private demonstration at the Mobile World Congress 2013, Hall 5, booth 8 and 9 of the French Pavilion (#5E100).
