VeriSilicon Holdings recently launched its Hantro G2 multi-format video decoder IP to support ultra HD 4K video decoding for the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) video coding standard. The G2 IP also adds support for the upcoming VP9 web video format from the WebM Project. The Hantro G2 also supports all legacy video formats such as H.264, VP8, MPEG-4, VC-1, AVS, MPEG-2, DivX, Sorenson Spark and VP6.

Hantro G2 is a scalable IP solution providing an optimised silicon area depending on licensee's target market and performance requirements varying from leading edge 4K at 60 fps for e.g. Ultra-HD TV, to industry standard 1080p HD, or to lower tier SD resolution for features phones, etc. Hantro G2 is the industry's first IP to support 4K at 60 fps with a single-core architecture using less than 1 million logic gates.

VP9 is the next generation, open video codec developed under the WebM Project initiated by Google. VP9 is expected to require up to 50 per cent less bandwidth to achieve the same visual quality as the very best H.264 high profile, providing significant bandwidth savings for web video services. VP9 provides a low-latency, high-quality video coding ideal for WebRTC applications, i.e. real-time video conferencing within the browser.

VeriSilicon is working on Hantro H2 Multi-format encoder with support for HEVC and VP9 to be released later this year.
