Mentor Graphics Corp. has teamed up with Global Edge Software to offer multimedia application developers H.264 technology for the Nucleus PLUS RTOS. Software developers using the Nucleus PLUS RTOS with support for the newest H.264 video compression standard can now build applications such as cellular handsets that include higher quality and lower bit-rate streaming video.

H.264 is a next-generation video codec that provides 70 per cent improvement over MPEG-2 and 50 per cent improvement over MPEG-4. The advanced coding efficiency and lower bit rate that H.264 offers make it ideal for the limited bandwidth and memory capacity that today's mobile broadcasting and streaming multimedia applications require.

"The dramatically increased compression performance of H.264 allows developers to implement superior quality, lower cost streaming video and audio into multimedia applications, bringing high-end features down into the low and medium price range," said Glen Johnson, product marketing manager, embedded systems division, Mentor Graphics.

Scalable and highly optimised, the Nucleus PLUS RTOS is widely accepted by developers for building multimedia applications and for leveraging the required video and audio codec compression capabilities. Additionally, Mentor royalty-free business model makes the Nucleus software especially attractive to the high-volume handset market, as it enables manufacturers to reduce costs that would normally be passed on to their customers.

Licenses for the Nucleus RTOS software begin at Rs.5,72,645.85 ($12,495).
