H.264/AVC Video Compression

Encoders, Decoders and Subsystems

Each accelerated hardware encoder and decoder in this family satisfies particular needs for performance, power consumption, and silicon area, and offers smart trade-offs of compression degree and quality.

Included are:

  • H.264/AVC Video Encoders and Decoders, supporting different profiles and featuring the lowest power consumption and smallest silicon area compared to competitive cores,
  • a hardware RTP stack for H.264 Stream Decapsulation and pre-integrated Video Over IP Subsystems, and
  • DMA engines, interface bridges, and other companion cores for easier system integration

CAST is one of the longest-running providers of image and video compression IP cores, with hundreds of successful customers shipping millions of media products, beginning in 1998. Royalty-free licensing is available for all these cores.
