AV1 Elementary Streams

Test AV1 video decoders compliance

AV1 Elementary Streams

Allegro DVT compliance bitstreams are designed for intensive testing of AV1 decoder implementations.

AV1 (AOMedia Video 1)  is an open, royalty-free video coding format designed for video transmissions over the Internet. It is being developed by the Alliance for Open Media (AOMedia), a Joint Development Foundation project formed in 2015 to define and develop media codecs, media formats, and related technologies to address marketplace demand for an open standard for video compression and delivery over the web.


Unique Selling Points

  • Avoids expensive re-design phases and shortens development cycles. Due to their high complexity, video decoders need to be extensively validated ahead of production.
  • Strengthens the decoder against all encodings, existing or to come, to extend final products’ life.


  • IP and IC vendors, system vendors (set-top boxes, digital TVs, smartphones, tablets, etc.).


  • Elementary streams suite, each stream focusing on a specific video feature to allow fast and simple analysis of potential issues.
  • Complete reference documentation.
