At IBC, Allegro DVT will demonstrate the final, fully validated, ready for tape out, version of its HEVC Main10 profile 4K@60fps video decoder IP.
Allegro DVT will show a FPGA demonstration for its AL-HEVC-D decoding IP. Allegro DVT's AL-HEVC-D is a hardware decoder IP core, which supports the next generation HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) standards. It is the industry’s first fully compliant HEVC decoding IP that supports both Main and Main10 profiles, capable to process up to 4Kx2K resolution. It will be exposed on our booth 1.A46. Current expectations are that 4K content will drive the market of television displays and content capture systems. By lowering encoding bandwidth requirements by 50%, HEVC brings generalization of 4K at hand. This explains that our customers have an immediate requirement to support HEVC in System on Chip (SoC), which we are ready to address with our HEVC Decoding IP. The Main10 profile was specifically designed to improve 4K content video quality and it is currently assumed that the 10 bit color depth support can be accounted for a significant part of the additional immersivity brought by 4K content. As a consequence, we anticipate the whole production industry chain to leverage transition to 4K and adopt 10 bit color depth support, which in turn requires support on playing devices.
At IBC 2013, Allegro DVT will also present on its booth:
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 wireless display support.
WiGig WDE Codec IP, the most advanced Wireless Display Extension (WDE) codec for next generation wireless technology at 60 GHz: 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.
Come and book a private demonstration at IBC 2013 in Amsterdam, booth 1.A46.
