VeriSilicon Introduces Hantro H2 HEVC Encoder Semiconductor IP
SHANGHAI --(Business Wire)--
VeriSilicon (News - Alert) Holdings Co., Ltd. (VeriSilicon), the Silicon Platform as a
Service (SiPaaSTM) company providing IP-centric and platform
based custom silicon solutions, today announced its next-generation
Hantro (News - Alert) H2 HEVC video encoder IP. Hantro H2 builds on the success of
VeriSilicon's Hantro H1 encoder IP, bringing ultra-high definition (UHD)
and 4K resolution video encoding capability to the HEVC video format.
VeriSilicon's latest Hantro hardware encoder solution is based on
silicon-proven designs deployed in millions of smartphones, feature
phones, digital still cameras, tablets, set-top boxes, surveillance
cameras and video cameras worldwide. Hantro H2 provides semiconductor
manufacturers with a minimal risk solution for integrating
high-performance video capability into their chips.
Hantro H2's modern architecture enables 4K resolution encoding at 30
frames per second on a single core running below 300MHz. It also
supports the next-generation HEVC H.265 video standard, which offers a
50% bitrate savings over H.264, essential to enabling UHD/4K streaming,
broadcasting and video conferencing services. Hantro H2 is also one of
the smallest HEVC video encoder IP solutions with low power consumption
and negligible load on the host CPU.
In addition to providing higher visual quality with lower bitrate,
Hantro H2 offers 60% savings on the system bus bandwidth by implementing
reference frame compression. For display mirroring and video
conferencing applications, Hantro H2 supports slice-basd low latency
"Video is the most popular application among mobile devices such as
tablets and smartphones as well as its rapidly expanding use in
surveillance systems for smart homes and vision systems for smart cars.
Following the release of our integrated HEVC and VP9 Hantro G2 decoder
in 2013, VeriSilicon will provide full support for Google's (News - Alert) WebM
initiative with the launch of Hantro H2 fully integrated HEVC and VP9
encoder later this year, further enhancing our video silicon platforms,"
said Dr. Wayne Dai, Founder, President and CEO of VeriSilicon.
