French IP designer Allegro DVT has launched a new generation of video compression IPs built upon a higher performance architecture with support for resolutions from 4K60 up to 8K120.

The E300 series of encoder IPs from Allegro DVT implements an enhanced hardware architecture that trades off between video compression quality and real-time performance. It supports multiple video formats by sharing resources between H.264, HEVC, VP9, AV1 and JPEG compression standards to minimize power consumption and silicon area.

In addition to providing a better pixel throughput and improved 8K video quality, the E300 series includes features for video surveillance applications, automotive, application processors and cloud video transcoding and gaming.

These encoding features include more pre-processing options and noise reduction filters, automatic detection of Regions Of Interest (ROI) in source pictures and ultra-low latency encoding. Furthermore, the E300 series embeds various caching and compression mechanisms to lower the memory bandwidth requirements which becomes a critical system level issue with increasing video resolutions and frame rates.

“Allegro DVT has a proven track record in providing cutting-edge and scalable video IPs with best-in-class video quality, silicon area and power consumption. The flexibility of the architecture of our new E300 series allows our customers to reach the performance levels required to meet the growing demand for higher picture resolutions up to 8K and higher frame rates up to 120fps. The E300 series is a comprehensive new family of products designed to support a wide spectrum of applications and use cases. This is made possible by an innovative and scalable architecture that allows dynamic trade-offs between compression quality and pixel throughput,” said Nouar Hamze, CEO of Allegro DVT.

The E300 series is immediately available and is being integrated by customers into SoC encoder designs.
