MPEG-2 HD Decoder Eval Kit

DC-VA-MPEG2-8B-60-1080-EV-SL


Description

Evaluation kits are the fastest way to get started using our high-performance all-hardware codecs. After evaluation, the kits can be used for product development, and full schematics can be licensed if you later wish to design your own hardware.

Eval Kit

Customers are advised to consider also purchasing an associated Encoder Eval Kit, for example the MPEG-2 HD Encoder Eval Kit (EC-VA-MPEG2-8B-60-1080-EV-SL) for lowest-latency end-to-end product evaluation and testing.

Standard:
MPEG-2
MPEG-2 is the first-generation MPEG Codec Specification. Although the MPEG-2 compression efficiency has been largely superceded by the newer H.264 and H.265 standards, many organizations still rely on on the MPEG-2 standard.
Codec:
Decoder
A decoding system receives compressed Transport/Elementary/Program Stream(s) from a source over UDP, and decode it into raw HDMI/SDI video for a display.
Resolution:
HD
1080p Full-HD Codecs (FHD) are optimized to process frames up to 1920 pixels wide and 1080 pixels high. Resolutions exceeding these limits may be prepared by special request.
FPS:
60fps
60fps supports frame-rates up to 60fps including FPS/1.001 (59.95, 49.95, etc.)
Audio:
Video/Audio
Video-Audio Codecs process both video and audio data. Audio data is encoded/decoded as AAC or MPEG2-LayerII.
Precision:
8 bits
8-bit is the most common color precision. A balance of compression and quality, sufficient for most applications.
Latency:
Standard Latency
The standard-latency edition Codecs produce latency of ~2 frames. Compared to software-based or DSP-based codecs on the market, this is considered top-tier latency performance, much faster than what is considered typical.
