Allegro DVT, a leading provider of silicon video IP solutions announces the availability of its D301, the first MPEG-5 Low Complexity Enhancement Video Coding (LCEVC) decoder IP solution. The D301 is expected to accelerate the adoption of the new video standard by allowing SoC/ASIC vendors to rapidly offer solutions compatible with the emerging format.
MPEG-5 part 2 LCEVC (Low Complexity Enhancement Video Coding) is the latest standard by MPEG and ISO. It specifies an enhancement layer which, when combined with a base video encoded with a separate codec such as H.264/HEVC/AV1/VVC, produces an enhanced video stream. The enhanced stream provides new features such as extending the compression capability of the base codec, lowering encoding and decoding power consumption, and providing a platform for additional future enhancements.
The D301 LCEVC decoder IP is optimized for power and silicon area, making it suitable for system-on-chip (SoC) designers to easily integrate LCEVC decoding into their products. It supports picture resolution up to 8K, pixel widths from 8 to 12-bits and chroma subsampling formats ranging from 4:2:0 up to 4:4:4. The IP also features fast and easy SoC integration and is delivered with full user configurable control software.
Guido Meardi, CEO of V-Nova said: “We are very excited about Allegro DVT’s introduction of their LCEVC decoder IP. As a market leader in video silicon IPs, Allegro DVT’s product launch represents a cornerstone towards delivering the first HW enabled LCEVC decoding solutions which are key to optimizing power consumption and to supporting higher resolutions.”
Allegro DVT will host a live demonstration of the D301 on its booth (W1974) during the 2023 NAB show in Las Vegas (April 16-19).
