Allegro DVT licenses its H.264 IP core to a top-10 IC vendor

Grenoble, France - February 10, 2009

Allegro DVT announces it has signed a license agreement for its H.264/MPEG-4 AVC high-profile, high-definition hardware video encoding IP with another of the world's top 10 IC vendors. Allegro DVT's H.264 encoding IP will be used in a complex System-On-Chip (SOC) for high-volume consumer applications.

Allegro DVT's H.264 IP core is a real-time hardware encoder targeting mobile phones, camcorders, set-top boxes, webcams and video surveillance applications. The IP core uses Allegro DVT's H.264 compression algorithms originally designed for high quality broadcast applications. Allegro DVT's IP core can process images up to high-definition resolutions and can encode several channels simultaneously.

"We are extremely proud to have been selected by another leading IC company. This demonstrates that Allegro DVT's H.264 encoding IP not only provides best-in-class video quality but is also perfectly optimized to fit the complex memory bandwidth, latency and area requirements of consumer SOCs," points out Pierre Marty, CEO of Allegro DVT.

Allegro DVT's H.264 encoding IPs are also available for H.264 baseline and main profiles in resolutions ranging from CIF to HD.
