H.264 / AVC Technology
H.264/MPEG-4 AVC is a video coding standard that was developed by the Joint Video Team (JVT) of the ITU-T Visual Coding Experts Group (VCEG) and the ISO/IEC Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG). Today the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC standard is used in more than 1 billion devices.
H.264 / AVC Solutions
Fraunhofer HHI's Video Communication and Applications department developed AVC software and hardware solutions, demonstrating the benefits of this video-coding technology.
H.264 / AVC Ultra Low Latency Hardware Video Codec
Fraunhofer HHI offers an ultra-low latency video encoder compliant with the H.264 baseline profile. The encoder is implemented as a hardwired solution, which can be mapped on FPGAs or ASICs without the need of external memory. It is especially tailored to real-time applications and allows up to 1080p encoding with today's FPGA or ASIC technologies.
H.264 / AVC Enhanced Low Latency Hardware Video Codec
The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI offers a range of H.264 /AVC compliant codecs (IPs) for use in industrial applications. Specially tailored to real-time applications, the IPs allow coding of up to 1080p resolution on current FPGA technologies. The codecs are fully hardwired implementations with low power consumption and minimal resource usage.
H.264 / AVC Bitstream Test Suite
Fraunhofer HHI offers different sets of test bitstreams which can be used for testing H.264/AVC decoder chips or Set Top Boxes.
