Feb 8, 2010, Bangalore, India. Tatvik Technologies, a provider of leading multimedia solutions for Mobile phones and handhelds, has started providing software video codecs optimized for Cortex-A8 using ARM NEON technology. This is in addition to company’s existing efficient and world leading video codec solutions on ARM9 and ARM11 processors.
ARM NEON technology is a 128 bit SIMD architecture extension for the ARM Cortex-A series processors, which provides powerful acceleration for multimedia applications, thereby delivering a significantly enhanced user experience. Using NEON technology, Tatvik has achieved double the performance of video codecs on Cortex-A8 based mobile devices from existing optimized C code, thereby delivering higher resolutions, higher frame rates and longer battery life.
On 600 MHz Cortex-A8 (OMAP3530 of BeagleBoard with Linux), H.264 BP decoder achieves 45 FPS decoding for 1 mbps D1 streams, and MPEG-4 SP/H.263 encoder achieves 30 FPS encoding for D1 (720×480) streams. This boost in performance of video codecs enables several high resolution and high quality applications on Cortex-A8 based mobile devices like Nokia N900, Google Nexus One, Motorola DROID, HTC HD2, Apple iPhone 3GS and many more. The codecs are available for licensing on Android, Linux, Symbian, Windows Mobile and iPhone OS X.
