Allegro DVT and V-Nova have agreed a strategic collaboration to accelerate development of LCEVC and foster adoption of MPEG-5 LCEVC among video SOCs/ASIC vendors. It has just become a lot a lot easier to integrate LCEVC on the video SOCs inside TVs, mobile phones, set-top-boxes or PCs.
The two companies will collaborate to address the growing demand for LCEVC aiming to make available both compliance test streams and proven video IPs. This new product roadmap will enable video SOC and video ASIC vendors in a multitude of different markets to integrate and verify the compliance of their LCVEC implementation with the standard, allowing for a safer tape-out and faster time-to-market.
Allegro DVT, headquartered in Grenoble, France, is a world leading provider of digital video technology solutions including compliance streams and video codec semiconductor IPs focused on the H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, AVS2, AVS3, VP9, AV1 and VVC standards.
Nouar Hamze, CEO, Allegro DVT said “We were impressed with the performance of LCEVC both in terms of video quality and compression ratio. We also see it as an opportunity to tackle the increasing complexity of video codecs while delivering best-in-class power consumption. Allegro DVT is committed to supporting the LCEVC ecosystem and welcome the collaboration with V-Nova. Over the next months, we will be announcing a full range of new products to accelerate the design and testing of video SoCs targeting the LCEVC market.”
