-- ATEME (www.ateme.com
), a leading provider of hardware and software solutions for audio and video compression on DSP, PC and FPGA, participates in MPEGIF’s MPEG-4 AVC interoperability tests.
), is a world-famous organization created to promote MPEG emerging standards and ensure their interoperability.
Ateme is a member of MPEGIF since 2004 and is participating in the next round of interoperability tests for ISO/IEC MPEG-4 AVC, also known under the name ITU-T H.264, organized by MPEGIF. Full results are expected for the end of December 2004.
This new round of interoperability tests will verify mutual encoder and decoder product interoperability among international leaders in video compression. This work will make sure MPEGIF member products are indeed interoperable, thereby increasing product confidence on the market.
Ateme is participating with its Baseline and Main Profile H.264 encoder and decoder:
- H.264 (MPEG-4 part 10 / AVC), encoder on x86 (PC) ,
- H.264 (MPEG-4 part 10 / AVC), decoders on DSP and x86 (PC).
offer covers PC (x86), DSP and FPGA targets.Testing process:
The participating companies have agreed on the MPEGIF's test plan related to this interoperability test round.
- Companies with relevant encoder products generate bitstreams and post them to a common location;
- Companies with relevant decoder products download the bitsreams and test them in order to identify any interoperability problems.
- Encoder- and decoder-providing companies work out any problems in a collaborative way.
