Product Description

Chips&Media WAVE511 is H.264 and HEVC (H.265) combined multi-standard video decoder IP, optimally designed with streamlined single-CORE to support 4Kp60.  In recent days, H.265 (HEVC) standard is widely adopted and implemented by the surveillance industry accounting for its encoding efficiency to save 40~50% storage size and network bandwidth. However, H.264 standard is still dominating the market especially for legacy and mid to low end IP cameras. Thereby, there are (co-existing) IP cameras encoding and transmitting video at various qualities, resolutions and frame rates as in either H.264 or HEVC format.  At the other end of security system, NVR products, which store, monitor, and analyze videos coming from multiple IP cameras, are inevitably to support both HEVC and H.264. Especially, the market demand for applications in NVRs are growing at fast pace because of its high rate of object detection analysis, object library management, false alarm filtering, and multi-channel support, and start-ups are venturing in to the market with their unique AI technology seeking for new business opportunity.  Coping with rapidly evolving market trend, WAVE511 provides video decoding for HEVC and H.264 as a single core IP. Moreover, implemented multi-instance feature enables one WAVE511 for simultaneous and optimized decoding of multiple input streams at various frame rates and qualities.
