AL-E150 Encoder IP

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

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

Allegro DVT’s AL-E150 is a real-time, true multi-format hardware encoder IP supporting H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, VP9 video codecs and JPEG still image standard. The AL-E150 encoder IP brings support for smart encoding features such as noise reduction filters and static region detetion in source pictures.

AL-E150 encoder IP is perfectly suited for applications such as:

  • Digital Still and Digital Video Cameras
  • Video surveillance
  • Wireless display
  • Automotive

Key advantages

  • State of the art video encoding quality
