-- ATEME (www.ateme.com
), leading provider of hardware and software technologies for advanced video compression on DSP, PC and FPGA, introduces MPEG-4 Part 10 AVC/H.264 encoder for DSP
, leveraging its portfolio of audio/video compression libraries for DSP. This encoder, intended for video surveillance and streaming media products, is optimized to run on Texas Instruments’ DaVinci™ Technology, the TMS320C64x™ and TMS320DM64x generations.
Compliant with MPEG-4 Part 10 AVC/H.264 (ISO/IEC 14496-10) standard, the H.264 encoder library for DSP provides the best unrivalled quality on a single DSP. Benefiting from ATEME’s 10 years of expertise in video encoding, this solution offers to professionals the most complex video compression standard available today on the most versatile target.
All of the tools required to reach a high coding efficiency are available including quarter pixel motion estimation and in-loop deblocking filter. In addition, a specific decision process enables fine tuning for best quality and performance allowing up to D1 standard resolution to be encoded in real-time on a single TMS320DM642. CBR, VBR and Constant Quantizer bit rate regulation modes are completed by an exclusive rate constrained mode aimed at providing low latency on bandwidth limited networks.
“The ATEME H.264 Encoder for DSP will help our customers enhancing their products and be ready for the new standard in video codec”, said Marc Guillaumet, Marketing Director. Video security products will enable better quality on low bandwidth and low-latency constrained applications. Video-telephony at home will compete with professional systems and the personal video recorder will store more movies on the same storage capacity. “Any streaming and multimedia application can take advantage of this new opportunity”.
Together with its highly efficient H.264 decoder for DSP, streaming solutions and reference designs, ATEME is a one-stop-shop for all digital video requirements.
ATEME’s H.264 encoder for DSP is now available. It will be demonstrated at the Texas Instruments Developer Conference 2006 series: Dallas, US (28 February-2 March); Paris, France (28-29 March); Birmingham, UK (30-31 March); Munich, Germany (4-5 April); Tel Aviv, Israel (7-8 June) and at the ISC West, Las Vegas, US (5-7 April 2006).
