AVC & HEVC Video Compression

A range of H.264 and H.265 hardware video codecs

Each accelerated hardware encoder and decoder in this family satisfies particular needs for performance, power consumption, and silicon area, and offers smart trade-offs of compression degree and quality.

Included are:

  • H.264/AVC Video Encoders and Decoders, supporting different profiles and featuring the lowest power consumption and smallest silicon area compared to competitive cores, and
  • An H.265/HEVC Decoder with versatile support for multiple profiles and video system characteristics.

CAST is one of the longest-running providers of image and video compression IP cores, with hundreds of successful customers shipping millions of media products, beginning in 1998. Royalty-free licensing is available for all these cores.
