NTT Electronics has developed a FPGA version of a multi-standard single chip LSI for both H.264/AVC 4:2:2 10-bit (including AVC-Intra 100/50) and MPEG-2 4:2:2 decoding. The 1080p 60 FPGA version will be released in the first quarter of 2011. By 2012, NTT Electronics expects to have over 10 models of next-generation H.264/AVC encoder/decoder LSIs.
NTT Electronics’ new chip supports H.264/AVC 4:2:2 10-bit decoding, including AVC-Intra 100/50, helping to improve efficiency in the transmission and editing of high-quality video. The chip also supports 10-bit and 8-bit H.264/AVC 4:2:2 and 4:2:0, as well as MPEG-2 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 8-bit specifications. By using the new chip in equipment on the receiving side, video can be received without concern about which format is used on the sending side.
In the broadcasting industry, various types of H.264/AVC 4:2:2 10-bit equipment are available for the recording, editing, storage and transmission of high-quality (high-definition) video.
