The Most Complete Multi-Format Solution for Wireless IC’s - MPEG-4, H.263 H.264/AVC, VC-1 and JPEG in one Design
ARM Developers Conference, Santa Clara USA – October 4th, 2005 - Targeted for wireless IC’s and enabling a powerful suite of applications such as digital still camera, video messaging, personal video player, video telephony and mobile TV; Hantro’s 7170 decoder is the first hardware solution that combines all of the key formats for enabling mobile multimedia in one design. The new 7170 Multi-Format Decoder supports video resolutions up to 720 x 576 and JPEG still images up to 16 million pixels. By supporting MPEG-4, H.263, H.264 / AVC and VC-1 the decoder facilitates the playback of the richest and most varied volume of content available.
The decoder incorporates a host of post-processing features to improve visual performance, simplify device integration and facilitate application development: colour conversion changes the output video to RGB format, meeting display input requirements. Brightness, contrast and saturation provide complete control over the visual aspects of the image. Alpha blending and masking simplify user interface design. Cropping and scaling enable higher resolution video / still images to be easily displayed on the handset and, picture in picture facilitates applications such as video telephony and channel preview for mobile TV.
"High quality video and ease of use are critical success factors for mobile video applications. With support for all of the key formats and advanced post-processing functionality to improve the visible quality of the video, the 7170 is the definitive choice for implementing multimedia." says Eero Kaikkonen – President and CEO of Hantro.
