Allegro DVT, a leading provider of video codec hardware (RTL) IP solutions, today announced that Movidius, the leader in high performance computer vision technology for connected devices, has chosen Allegro DVT's multi-format H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC and JPEG encoder IP for integration into System-on-Chips (SoCs) targeted at Movidius next-generation ultra-low power machine vision platforms.
The Movidius award-winning Myriad family of vision processing units (VPUs) feature advanced machine intelligence algorithms implemented in a unique parallel programming architecture specifically targeted at vision processing applications with stringent requirements for real-time, high-performance and ultra-low power. By adding Allegro DVT's video encoder IP to its SoCs, Movidius is able to complement its machine vision platforms with high quality video compression into H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC and JPEG at resolutions up to 4K.
"Allegro DVT was able to offer a feature-rich encoder IP solution which perfectly meets our requirements for high video quality and ultra-low power consumption. Furthermore, we were impressed by the ease of which the IP can be integrated in our SoCs." commented Sean Mitchell, COO of Movidius.
Pierre Marty, CEO of Allegro DVT, commented: "We are proud to have been selected by Movidius, a company that is at the forefront of the machine vision revolution. The unique scalable architecture of our video encoder IPs makes them easy to integrate both from HW and SW point of view and enables our customers to quickly develop and bring to market cutting edge SoCs with best in class video quality and power consumption."
