HEVC and Other Multimedia Codecs

Smart devices like mobile phones, tablets, set-top boxes, automotive head units, digital signage and consumer entertainment devices — combined with a seemingly unlimited variety of new applications — are sending the demand for enhanced multimedia experiences through the roof. The biggest challenge faced by companies is the need to exploit available hardware capabilities to the fullest and also reduce the time-to-market cycles. Aricent helps clients address these challenges by providing pre-packaged multimedia CODECs (Encoders and decoders) that enable accelerated launch of differentiated products. We provide an extensive portfolio of highly optimized, best-in-class audio, speech, image & video codecs which can be used for a wide range of applications, such as mobile devices, automotive, home automation, consumer electronics and infrastructure.

Features

Aricent has a rich portfolio of multimedia compression components that can help accelerate the development of Smart Devices that support multimedia functions such as playback, record, pause and seek. Besides smart devices, the encoder components are used at the content delivery head end infrastructure. The key features of this portfolio are as below:

  • Video support – MPEG4, H.264, H.263, HEVC, WMV9/VC-1. Real Video, XVID, DIVX, SVC
  • Multiple profiles for each video codec supported
  • Audio & Speech support – G.711, G.722, G.723, G.726, G.729, EVRC, QCELP, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, AMR-WB+, iLBC, Speex, WMA, OGG Vorbis, FLAC, AAC-LC, eAAC+, MP1/2/3, SBC, Real Audio
  • Image support – JPEG, JPEG2000, JPEG XR, GIF, MJPEG, PNG, BMP/WBMP
  • File formats support – 3gp/3g2, AVI, Divx, Xvid, Mp3, OGG Vorbis, ASF, MKV, QCP, ASX, AAC
  • Aricent has developed a portable Multimedia Framework that can be used across multiple OS platforms thereby saving significantly, the porting and integration effort for migrating multimedia solutions across platforms.
  • Architectures &SoCs – ARM 32-bit & 64-bit (e.g. Cortex A57/A53/A15/A9/A8, ARM 11/9), ARM microcontroller (e.g. Cortex M3/M4), Intel (SSE4, AVX, AVX2), GPUs (ARM MALI T604, Adreno 320, Intel, AMD Radeon), TI DSPs, Qualcomm Snapdragon, Samsung Exynos, Broadcom, TI SoCs.

Benefits

Our Multimedia codecs and frameworks offer the following value to clients:

  • High performance at a low power point through low-level code optimizations
  • Low BOM cost specifically in scenarios where hardware codecs increase BOM cost due to higher chipset cost
  • Reduced test and integration time with pre-integrated framework solutions tuned to specific applications like streaming and P2P communications
  • Reduced cost of ownership with a single portable solution that could be used across OS platforms and across a wide variety of devices
