WAVE541C is a dual-CORE codec IP, optimally architected for real-time encoding or decoding video at 8K60 in HEVC and H.264/AVC video formats. This IP core provides high-performance encoding and decoding capability up to 4K@120fps, 8K60fps with a dual-core architecture and an optimized silicon area for 4K Ultra-HD application.
SoCs powered with WAVE541C will bring 8K content readiness to video generating devices such as action cams, mobile video recorders, 360 VR devices and many more. This readiness will enable contents creators to generate videos and share them on video platforms like YouTube, which already supports 8K video streaming.
In terms of quality, considering real-time encoding at such high resolution and frame rate on portable devices, the best possible video quality is being achieved, and in terms of class competition, WAVE541C IP is designed to compete with x.264/x.265 medium preset on PC or Server.
WAVE541C: Dual-CORE HEVC+H.264 combined codec IP; Encode and Decode capability of 8Kp60 content at 1GHz using 12nm or higher technology
