VeriSilicon Holdings Co. Ltd, a Silicon Platform as a Service (SiPaaS) company offering IP-centric and platform based custom silicon solutions, has rolled out its next-generation Hantro H2 HEVC video encoder IP. According to the company, the Hantro H2 builds on the success of VeriSilicon's Hantro H1 encoder IP, bringing ultra-high definition (UHD) and 4K resolution video encoding capability to the HEVC video format.

VeriSilicon's latest Hantro hardware encoder solution is based on silicon-proven designs deployed in millions of smartphones, feature phones, digital still cameras, tablets, set-top boxes, surveillance cameras and video cameras worldwide, stated the company. Hantro H2 provides semiconductor manufacturers with a minimal risk solution for integrating high-performance video capability into their chips.

Hantro H2's modern architecture enables 4K resolution encoding at 30fps on a single core running below 300MHz. It also supports the next-generation HEVC H.265 video standard, which offers a 50 per cent bitrate savings over H.264, essential to enabling UHD/4K streaming, broadcasting and video conferencing services. Hantro H2 is also one of the smallest HEVC video encoder IP solutions with low power consumption and negligible load on the host CPU, noted VeriSilicon.

In addition to providing higher visual quality with lower bitrate, Hantro H2 offers 60 per cent savings on the system bus bandwidth by implementing reference frame compression. For display mirroring and video conferencing applications, Hantro H2 supports slice-based low latency encoding.
