PowerVR VXD Video Decoder
PowerVR™ VXD Video Decoder IP cores are multi-standard, multi-stream, ultra-high-definition video decoders. The cores decode video from the bit stream level such as ES level or NAL units and provide all the bit stream parsing and algorithmic functions required by various video standards, including entropy decoding, inverse scan, inverse transform, motion compensation, deblocking and overlap filtering.
PowerVR VXD decoders include advanced features, such as full support for 10 bit, 4:4:4, 4:2:2 & 4:2:0 profiles (High 10 Profile, High 4:2:2 Profile, High 4:4:4 Predictive Profile, and intra and CAVLC only variants of these). Support is also included for H.264 MVC. These decoders offer the industry’s lowest power consumption, alongside high performance H.265 & H.264 decoding capability, at resolutions up to 4K at 60 fps (4K60). Ultra high frame rate decoding enables applications such as faster than real time transcoding and video editing.
Stress and syntax test streams from the ISO, IEC, Allegro and Microsoft, as well as real-world streams (both off air and supplied by customers), have helped ensure multi-standard compliance.
