H.264 to MPEG2 Transcoder Modules


The SOC H.264 to MPEG-2 Transcoder System-on-Module (SOM) is built based on the low latency H.264 video decoder IP core and MPEG-2 video encoder IP core. The transcoder provides high speed (low-latency) and high video quality transcoding from H.264 streams of any profile to MPEG-2 streams.

The SOC H.264 to MPEG-2 SOM includes all required hardware components for H.264 to MPEG-2 video/audio transcoding. It is a complete unit that receives H.264 compressed video stream in transport format, and outputs MPEG-2 compressed video stream in transport.

The SOC H.264 to MPEG-2 video/audio Transcoder SOM can interface with an FPGA or a processor for user product integration or can be connected to I/O cards for direct product integration and fabrication.

SOC offers product development boards, allowing users to develop products using the SOC H.264 to MPEG-2 transcoder modules.

Users have the option of using the codec modules or licensing SOC IP cores for production. Customized modules are also available based on user specifications, given a reasonable production volume. SOC also integrates the I/O interfaces such as Ethernet MAC, UDP/IP, and HDMI interfaces into the module to produce complete SOM solutions.
