SAN FRANCISCO and GRENOBLE, France, May 29, 2014 --


At DAC 2014, Allegro DVT will perform a live demonstration of its HEVC/H.265 encoder IP core. The demonstration will be conducted on a prototyping platform, demonstrating the features and video quality of our HEVC/H.265 encoder IP.

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), alias H.265, is the next generation video standard, which brings 50% bitrate savings compared to equivalent H.264/AVC encodings. HEVC is expected to be the mainstream video standard for the next decade, as it technically supersedes all other video formats.

Allegro DVT HEVC/H.265 encoder IP core supports Main and Main10 profiles, up to 4K resolutions.

Our implementation aims at providing the highest possible video quality, and really leverages the bit-rate saving potential provided by the new HEVC coding tools. With an optimized area and low power consumption, our IP is perfectly suited for high volume consumer applications, such as tablets, smartphones, digital & wearable cameras.

Thanks to the aggressive time to market of our IP, our customers can quickly tape out SoCs with cost optimized, high quality HEVC Main/Main10 profiles encoder. With the completion of our HEVC encoding IP, Allegro DVT now provides a comprehensive solution for H.264/AVC & H265/HEVC encoder and decoder IPs.

At DAC 2014, on our booth, we will also demonstrate:

*HEVC/H.265 Decoder IP, our fully compliant HEVC Main/Main10 profile decoder, capable to support real-time decoding of 4K x 2K@60fps resolution and beyond.

*H.264 Hardware Encoding & Codec IPs, with best-in-class video quality, minimized silicon area, optimized power consumption and an ultra-low end-to-end latency.

*WiGig WDE Codec IP, our silicon proven Wireless Display Extension (WDE) codec for next generation 60 GHz wireless technology: IEEE 802.11 ad/WiGig.

*HEVC/H.265 Compliance Streams, provide HEVC/H.265 decoder manufacturers with the perfect tool for validating their developments, and ensure compliance with this upcoming video standard.

US Digital - E4T Miniature Optical Kit Encoder

US Digital - E4T Miniature Optical Kit Encoder

US Digital is pleased to announce the launch of the E4T, their latest series of miniature high performance optical encoders. The E4T series delivers a marked performance increase over similar encoder models and designed to be an enhanced replacement for the E4P encoder series. The E4T utilizes state of the art transmissive optical sensing technology, and incorporates US Digital's own proprietary OptoASIC. Assembly of the E4T is simple and efficient and retains the previous E4P's form factor. Key features of the new E4T include: • Mechanically and Electrically Interchangeable with E4P • Improved Quadrature Signal Strength • 100 kHz Frequency Response • Transmissive Optical Design • Collet Style Push on Optical Disk Design (Patent Pending) • Simple & Efficient Assembly Process As with all of our products the E4T is designed and manufactured in their Vancouver, Washington USA facility and is available for purchase as of December 2014.
