San Jose, CA, Fall Processor Forum 2005 – October 27, 2005 – videantis GmbH (Hannover, Germany), a leading IP and semiconductor solutions provider for innovative multistandard mobile and home video applications, announced the addition of two new cores to its portfolio of video IP solutions. The new cores are the next generation of an overall roadmap supporting the latest standards and video enhancement technologies.
Both solutions are based on the new videantis v-MP2 processor platform, the successor to the silicon-proven v-MP1 core. The v-MP2 , supporting both single and multicore designs, is enhanced in processing performance for latest video coding standards (H.264/AVC, WMV9/VC-1, MPEG-4), power consumption and reduced size.
The videantis v-MP2000M mobile solution especially supports the requirements for multistandard capabilities and low power of applications like mobile phones, portable media players, and smartphones.
“Video is nowadays an integral part of mobile phones, and requirements for video enhancement ever increase. With the v-MP2000M, mobile phones for example can be realized at a new performance level for highest-quality mobile resolutions without frame drops and with 25% increase in battery life. This is a contribution to our commitment to provide leading edge capabilities for most innovative value-add, yet cost sensitive products,” said Hans-Joachim Stolberg, CEO of videantis.
The v-MP2000M is based on a single v-MP2 processor core and integrates seamlessly with any standard control processor. The fully synthesizable, target technology independent core is offered with a fully optimized software suite for current video coding like H.264/AVC, MPEG-4 SP/ASP, and others.
The high-definition v-MP2000HD multicore solution fully leverages the scalability of the v-MP2 processor core as a building block to provide the necessary performance levels for video processing at resolutions up to 1080i. Based on three v-MP2 cores with the same degree of programmability, the support for multiple standards like H.264/AVC, WMV9/VC-1, and MPEG-2 and advanced video enhancement is achieved on a single unified architecture.
“Using the same powerful v-MP2 processor core as a building block for both mobile and high definition solutions, application development for a wide range of target applications is greatly simplified, further shortening the development cycles for emerging features and schemes,” said Mark B. Kulaczewski, VP Corporate Development of videantis.
The v-MP2000M and v-MP2000HD cores are available for licensing now.
