Allegro DVT adds VP9 support to its multi-format hardware encoder IP.

Grenoble, France

Allegro DVT announces the immediate availability of its multi-format hardware video encoder IP with H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC and VP9 support. This enhanced version of the Allegro DVT multi-format encoder IP now supports:

for any resolution ranging from HD up to 4K@60Hz-10 bit.

This new IP brings 3 major benefits to our customers: 

"Thanks to an improved compression efficiency and to its adoption by YouTube, VP9 has gained a huge traction in the video industry. Our customers are eager to quickly integrate VP9 support in their next generation SoCs. With our innovative multi-format architecture our customers can now add support for high quality/low bandwidth VP9 encoding with no significant increase in SoC area, power consumption or memory bandwidth" said Pierre MARTY, Allegro DVT's CEO.

"WebM project is really excited to see the first true VP9 enabled multi-format encoder IP to enter the semiconductor market.", says Jani Huoponen, product manager for WebM hardware. "VP9 hardware decode support in the chipsets and devices is increasing rapidly and next phase is to enable VP9 real-time encoding in consumer devices. Allegro multi-format encoder with VP9 support is a real good option for various consumer devices.".

The multi-format encoder IP with VP9 support is immediately available. It has already been licensed and delivered to one of the top-10 IC vendors.
