Ace Thought launches multi-threaded software video decoder suite for ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore and Cortex-A15 MPCore

Ace Thought Technologies now offers a multi-threaded software video decoder suite for ARM Cortex-A series of application processors. The decoder suite supports video decoding of H.264 (AVC) Baseline, Main & High Profile, VC-1 Simple, Main & Advance Profile, MPEG-4 Simple & Advanced Simple Profile, H.263 and MPEG-2 video compression standards. 

The suite is engineered for high-resolution media applications with tuned, optimized, and threaded software-based video decoding, and provides scalable performance by utilizing ARM NEON and MPCore multi-core processor technologies. The video decoder suite enables single, dual, or quad core decoding algorithm based upon the number of cores in the application processor. The suite enables up to 30 frames per second (fps) playback of 720p high definition resolution on dual-core and 1080p full high definition resolution on quad-core ARM Cortex A series processors.

The multi-threaded video decoding suite enables high quality video solutions with HD resolution on Android based smart-phones and tablets and on iPhone & iPad. The scalable design allows it to efficiently support single, dual, and quad-core application processors in a single library, enabling high quality performance at low cost. 

Ace Thought Technologies' introduction of H.264 High Profile video decoding capabilities in the video decoder suite enables mobile and tablet apps with life-like, high definition video at much lower bandwidths. 

The video decoder suite is now available for licensing and will be demonstrated at various upcoming trade shows this year, details of which can be found at www.acethought.com.
