AL-E200 Encoder IP

4K/UHD 4:2:0/4:2:2 Multi-Format Encoder


Allegro DVT’s AL-E200 encoder IP features a new hardware architecture that minimizes the silicon area while enabling 4K resolution encoding in a single core and beyond in a multi-core configuration. The AL-E200 encoder is built around a true multi format architecture that shares resources between the H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, VP9 and JPEG compression standards, while providing superior video encoding quality. The AL-E200 also has multiple new smart encoding features allowing customers to considerably reduce the bitrate to meet their application specific requirements.

AL-E200 encoder IP targets high-end applications such as:

  • Digital still and digital video cameras
  • Video surveillance
  • Video transcoding and broadcasting
  • Wireless display
  • VR/AR
  • Automotive
