Allegro DVT now Targets Wireless Display (WiDi) With its Ultra-low Latency H.264 IP Cores

June 7, 2011

GRENOBLE, France, June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Allegro DVT announces the
immediate availability of an ultra-low latency version of its H.264/MPEG-4
AVC high-profile, high-definition hardware video encoding IP (
http://www.allegrodvt.com/Allegro/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&i
d=15&Itemid=25), suitable for Wireless Display applications.

Wireless Display encompasses a set of technologies designed to carry a
video source over a wireless data channel in real time.

This long awaited concept lets viewers do away with video cables in
applications like:

– Wireless HDMI (STB, Blu-ray or gaming consoles)

– PC-to-TV

– PC-to-Video projector

To ease video signal transmission over the air, some form of video
compression is required.

All solutions until now come with some degree of latency, introducing an
annoying time lag in user applications.

Thanks to Allegro DVT proprietary ultra-low latency H.264 technologies,
it is now possible to cut the lag, improve reliability and reduce the power
consumption of a WiDi connection.

Allegro DVT low-latency compression technologies are suitable for all
types of wireless transmission including Wi-Fi, Ultra Wideband and 60 GHz.

Allegro DVT’s H.264 IP core (
http://www.allegrodvt.com/Allegro/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&i
d=15&Itemid=25) is a silicon-proven real-time hardware encoder targeting
mobile phones, camcorders, set-top boxes, webcams and video surveillance
applications. The IP core uses Allegro DVT’s H.264 compression algorithms,
originally designed for high quality broadcast applications. Allegro’s IP
core can process images up to high-definition resolutions and can encode
several channels simultaneously.

Allegro’s H.264 encoding IP delivers HD quality with end-to-end latency
as low as 20 ms, as required by WiDi, Video Conferencing and a wide range of
automotive, military and medical applications. “Allegro DVT’s IP core caters
to real-time and fast-response applications, delivering full frame rate video
at HD quality. This new breakthrough demonstrates Allegro’s advanced
technical know-how and H.264 encoding expertise”, says Stephane Audrain, head
of IP core development at Allegro DVT.

Allegro DVT’s H.264 encoding IPs (

d=15&Itemid=25) are also available for H.264 baseline and main profiles, in
resolutions ranging from CIF to HD, and support H.264/MVC for 3D video.
