Renesas Technology Corp. has announced the development of the Flexible Movie Player, an video/audio playback software package for embedded systems using the company's SH-Mobile application processor for mobile phones.

Flexible Movie Player incorporates full hardware acceleration supporting the H.264/MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding video compression standard. It more efficiently extracts the video processing performance of the SH-Mobile than the video playback middleware previously released by Renesas. In particular, Flexible Movie Player can deliver high-quality video reproduction even of content requiring high-volume processing by the CPU. With earlier middleware video processing performance would have suffered when playing such content due to the priority given to audio processing.

Modular structure
Support for playback of MP4 video files, which are widely used on mobile phones, is provided as standard, and modules are available for extending support to newer file formats in the future. This makes it possible for mobile phone handsets to provide high-quality playback of multiple types of video content. This modular structure provides flexibility in expanding functions and shortens system development time.

The software will be available in Japan beginning July 2008.
