AL-E210 Encoder IP

AV1, VP9, H.265/HEVC, H.264/AVC and JPEG Encoder IP

AV1, VP9, H.265/HEVC, H.264/AVC and JPEG Encoder IP

Allegro DVT’s AL-E210 is the first video encoder IP to implement real-time and file-based encoding in AV1 format up to 4K/UHD resolutions. Built upon a true multi-format architecture, it provides support for AV1, VP9, H.265/HEVC, H.264/AVC and JPEG by sharing resources between the five supported codecs to achieve best-in-class trade-offs between silicon area, system memory bandwidth and power consumption.
The AL-E210 inherits all the smart encoding features from previous Allegro DVT encoder products, such as preprocessing and noise reduction filters, automatic detection of Regions Of Interest (ROI) in source pictures and ultra-low latency encoding. Furthermore, the AL-E210 embeds various caching and compression mechanisms to lower the memory bandwidth requirements which become a critical system level issue with increasing video resolutions and frame rates.

AL-E210 encoder IP targets high-end applications such as:

  • Cloud transcoding and broadcasting
  • Video surveillance cameras
  • Digital and action cameras
  • VR/AR devices
  • Automotive
