Freescale Semiconductor Inc. aims to bring high-performance, low-power video communication capabilities to its OEM customers with the industry's first embedded scalable video coding (SVC) solution. Designed to run on Freescale's StarCore-based MSC825x high-performance DSPs, the high definition H.264/SVC software offering makes use of more than 30 off-the-shelf media codecs.

Using embedded processors instead of general purpose servers, OEMs will be able to make more affordable end-products such as video conferencing infrastructure equipment, high-end video conferencing end points, media gateway applications and IPTV distribution systems, Freescale said in a statement.

The company stressed that the first-ever H.264/SVC 1080p30 software helps overcome packet loss and seamlessly deliver smooth video feeds as IP video applications send and receive multi-layered video streams with better resolution, frame rate and quality.

Freescale offers OEMs the source code to allow them to customize the codecs and to quickly upgrade or adapt to market trends.

Included with the Freescale solution are multi-format video and audio software libraries including H.264/SVC, H.264BP, MPEG2 /4, G.729, AAC and other video, voice and audio components; and device peripherals such as dual 4x SRIO, 4x PCIe and dual GE.
