H.265/HEVC H.264/AVC 422 12bit Multi-Codec for 8K

Product Overview

TMC’s Multi-Codec IP is a Hardware Codec IP that supports H.265/HEVC and H.264/AVC, which are video compression and decompression standards standardized by ISO/IEC. The performance is processing 4K images, which have four times the number of pixels of Full HD, and 8K images, which also have 16 times the number of pixels. It supports 4:2:2 chroma format for professional video, and 10/12 bit depth for HDR (High Dynamic Range) video content that can express a wider range of brightness than SDR (Standard Dynamic Range).
