Pre-production codec by TI based on H.265 video encoding standard

Texas Instruments has made available a pre-production codec based on the industry's newest video encoding standard, H.265. This codec is optimized for TI's TMS320C6678 KeyStone-based multicore digital signal processor (DSP). The H.265 standard has been designed to take advantage of parallel processing, making the C6678 multicore DSP an ideal platform for H.265 implementation via its eight 1.25 GHz DSP cores capable of delivering 320 GMACs and 160 GFLOPs of combined fixed- and floating-point performance.

"We are proud to support TI's software-based implementation of H.265," said Aaron Caldwell, CEO, Z3 Technology. "Our module, built on TI's C6678 multicore DSP, will enable customers to quickly integrate H.265 technology into their product line at an affordable price and short development schedule. We have a long and storied history with TI's DaVinci family of processors and are very excited to now extend our technology and customer-base utilizing TI's KeyStone-based C6678 multicore DSPs. Our C6678 system not only provides our customers access to H.265, but also provides support for JPEG-2000, H.264 HBR and H.264 4:2:2."

"The highly-efficient video coding algorithms employed in TI's H.265 codec are optimized for execution on Advantech's DSPC-8681 and DSPC-8682 PCIe cards to help customers accelerate the evolution of their media processing solutions," said David Lin, Senior Director DSP Solutions, Advantech. "Our customers can upgrade their installed base to H.265 with no extra hardware costs while new solutions can be quickly deployed with greater density and lower cost-per-channel."
