This article reports that Sarnoff Corp., the R&D establishment formerly known as RCA Laboratories, is using IP cores from Mips Technologies Inc. for its latest H.264 video codecs. The cores are aimed at products such as mobile TVs, mobile phones, and VoIP terminals, and can render VGA video at up to 30 frames per second. Hardware-based accelerators can be used to improve flexibility, but software-only codecs are also available. The H.264 standard offers high compression ratios but is compute intensive, needing dedicated treatment.
