MPEG2 to H.264 Transcoder Modules


The SOC MPEG-2 to H.264 Transcoder Modules are based on the low latency MPEG-2 decoder IP core and H.264 encoder IP core. The transcoder modules provide high speed (low-latency) and high video quality transcoding from MPEG-2 streams to any desirable H264 profile which includes high, main, and baseline.

The SOC MPEG-2 to H.264 Video Transcoder System-on-Module (SOM) includes all required hardware components for MPEG-2 to H.264 video transcoding. It is a complete unit that receives MPEG-2 compressed video stream in transport or elementary format, and outputs H.264 compressed video stream in transport or elementary format.

The SOC MPEG-2 to H.264 Video 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 also offers product development boards, which allow users to develop products using the SOC MPEG-2 to H.264 Video Decoder Modules.

Customized modules are also available based on user specifications, given a reasonable production volume. In addition, SOC can integrate the I/O interfaces such as Ethernet MAC, UDP/IP, and HDMI into the module to produce full SOM solution.
