PathPartner Technology Showcases Licensable HEVC Solutions at NAB

The key demonstrations at NAB include broadcast quality HEVC encoder and decoder on Intel Server class platform and HEVC decoders on Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC and Quad Core Cortex A15 platform.

PathPartner Technology, a leading provider of embedded multimedia software services and solutions, has achieved real time delivery of UHD video. PathPartner offers end to end solutions for various video applications and is equally focused on continuous improvement of the quality and performance of both encoder and decoder, further to achieve optimized video delivery.

​PathPartner’s HEVC team will demonstrate their licensable solutions at the upcoming NAB show. These live demonstrations include the latest generation HEVC solutions on Intel server class and client (i5, i7) platforms with 4K resolution support, real time encoding and decoding up to 60 fps with bit rate of 16-20 Mbps range utilizing multi core x86 architecture. The demonstrations at NAB also include HEVC decoder solution on Xilinx Zynq 7000 series SoCs.

HEVC Encoders

·         4KP30 HEVC encoder on Haswell E5 server

o   Real time 4KP30 solution, with quality parameters much above commercially available encoders.

·         High quality HEVC encoder for 4KP60 sequences

o   Highest quality offline encoder which shows a better performance than  HM encoder

HEVC Decoders

·         4KP30 HEVC decoder on FPGA

o   Low power decode solution for IPBB sequences, available with a variety of customizable interface options

·         4KP60 HEVC decoder on i7 + GPU (Iris pro)

o   Supports 422 Main-10 profile, completely compliant to standard. Low power solution with sufficient CPU available for custom applications

A highly scalable and multi-channel HEVC Decoder solution on FPGA is also available with unmatched error concealment, optimized FPGA resources & memory utilization with ultra-low latency, making this decoder suitable for video conferencing, real time video streaming and other low delay applications. PathPartner’s HEVC decoder on FPGA Supports Main profile real time decoding of 4K @ 30 fps on Zynq 7045, with IBBP sequences. Performance is scalable up to 4K @ 60 fps decoding on UltraScale FPGAs, with Main-10 and 422 support under development.

PathPartner’s software solution for HEVC decoder on ARM takes advantage of the full capabilities of mobile SoCs built on latest ARM processors. The solution can perform real time decoding of 1080p @ 60 fps and 2160p @ 24fps video streams on quad core Cortex-A15 running at 2.3 GHz. The design fully leverages the media capabilities of the NEON SIMD engine and multi-threading, to exploit data and functional parallelism on ARM Cortex-A CPU cores. The decoder implementation is load balanced and scalable across single and multi-core (up to octal-core) devices.

With focus on performance, quality and flexible business model, PathPartner is demonstrating their HEVC solutions at booth #SU14006, NAB in Las Vegas.
