Ace Thought Technologies Private Ltd has unleashed its multithreaded software video decoder suite for ARM Cortex-A series of application processors. According to the company, 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.

Geared for high-resolution media applications, the developers can benefit from tuned, optimized and threaded software based video decoding, stated the company. The video decoder suite provides scalable performance by using ARM NEON and MPCore multicore processor technologies. The video decoder suite enables single-, dual- or quad-core decoding algorithm based on the number of cores in the application processor. Ace Thought's video decoder suite enables up to 30fps playback of 720p HD resolution on dual-core and 1080p full HD resolution on quad-core ARM Cortex A series processors.

Ace Thought Technologies' introduction of H.264 High Profile video decoding capabilities in the video decoder suite enables mobile and tablet users with life-like, HD video at much lower bandwidths, continued the company, while offering high performance and reduced power consumption.
