Bengaluru, India based Ittiam Systems bring native HEVC Decode to Android, by making H.265 a key feature of Android Lollipop release.
Srini Rajam, Chairman and CEO of Ittiam Systems said his company invested more than three years of investment in H.265 technology R&D on the content creation (encoding) and content consumption (decoding) ends of the spectrum.
H.265 compresses the video to smaller size but consumes higher processor resources. To give another silicon update on H.265, ARM announced new graphics IP Mali-T800 series supporting H.265.
