GRENOBLE, France — Allegro DVT is proud to introduce the world first HEVC hardware decoder IP at IBC 2012.

HEVC (aka “High Efficiency Video Coding”) is the next generation video standard, currently being developed by the JCT-VC team. JCT-VC is a joint team between MPEG and VCEG. The finalized HEVC standard will bring 50% bitrate savings compared to equivalent H.264/AVC encodings. HEVC should be ready for ratification by ISO and ITU (as ISO/IEC 23008-2 MPEG-H Part2 and ITU-T Rec.H.265) by the end of January 2013. HEVC decoders will then be quickly adopted in many devices such as: camcorders/DSC, digital TVs, PCs, set-top boxes, smartphones, tablets …

The new HEVC decoder IP leverages Allegro DVT long and successful history of hardware video IPs development. Thanks to this HEVC decoder IP, Allegro DVT customers will be able to tape-out HEVC capable SoC as soon as the standard is finalized.

At IBC 2012, Allegro DVT will demonstrate an FPGA based, real-time, high definition HEVC decoder, on its booth: 1.A46.

Any company that has interest on the HEVC topic is invited to contact us at [email protected] , and book a private demonstration on our stand 1.A46.
