Santa Clara, California -- October 19, 2009 -- Jointwave LLC, a leading provider of video codec IP, presented its H.264 series encoder in HYSTA 2009 Annual Conference.
“Jointave continues its investment and commitment on RTL based implementation of video technologies” said Paul Qiu, CEO of Jointwave LLC, when he was interviewd by NHK and Broadcastengineering.com during the HYSTA event. “Jointwave satisfies market requirements and provides custom services with its leading technologies, and forms a clear product line. Jointwave has introduced a low cost verification platform lately, which provides a realtime validation measure for H.264 IP on FPGA and ASIC products, and reduces customers’ risks in adopting the new technologies.”
“Jointwave has become an alliance member and design service partner of Xilinx and Altera respectively. We have been recognized by the FPGA industrial leaders as one of video processing IP providers with best video quality. Jointwave is now a better option for video applications’ success in the market.”
Jointwave H.264 encoder IP core targets two market sections. The first section is low bit rate and high video quality applications, such as remote presence and monitoring, mobile and wireless video transmission, satellite reconnaissance and remote sensing, avionics video recorder and aerospace video communications. It supports a variety of resolutions, from CIF (352x288) to full HD (1920x1080p@60fps). The other section is high to ultra high bitrate (100Mbps to 1.5Gbps) Ultra-highest quality or up to lossless equivalent video applications, including broadcast video editing system, digital cinema, professional broadcast encoder, Ultra-large-scale electronic displays and optical video transition compressed storage system, covering resolutions from D1, AVC Intra/AVC Ultra and Ultra HD (1920x1080p@120fps, and even 8000x4000p@30fps).
Jointwave IP cores supports Level 1.0 to 5.1 of H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10, also called AVC), covers baseline profile, main profile, and high 4:2:2/4:4:4 profile. Compare to competitors’ solutions, Jointwave’s IP core use less hardware resources and provide Ultra-low frequency, super low latency, smaller die size and Ultra-lowest power consumption. Jointwave H.264 IP core can be used without embedded or external CPU, and reduce the system complexity. It runs on FPGA as well as ASIC, Jointwave H.264 IP is now available. Delivery includes RTL code for ASIC, netlist for FPGA. Lowest cost evaluation and demo boards are available on the following platforms:
- Altera Cyclone III development kit
- Altera Stratix III development kit
And will be available soon on the following platforms
- Xilinx Spartan-3 development kit
- Xilinx Virtex-6 development kit
- Xilinx Spartan-6 development kit
HYSTA (Hua Yuan Science and Technology Association) is a leading professional association founded in 1999 that aims at nurturing entrepreneurship and career development among Chinese technology and business professionals and facilitates networking and the exchange of business ideas between Silicon Valley and China. This year’s conference focused on how to not only survive in business during global economic hardship but to also thrive; grow and expand, a new leader emerging from the pack. The conference featured keynote speeches and panel sessions on topics such as Green Energy / Clean Technology, Innovation in the current Global Economy and Venture Capital Opportunities. Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, was the keynote speaker to share his insights on the opportunities for US and China that exist in an unstable market. The conference brought together top industry leaders from both Silicon Valley and China and is targeting business executives, high-tech professionals, investors and those interested in entrepreneurship.
