Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) has extended the range of its DM36x DaVinci generation of portable encoding solutions to support full HD 1080p H.264 encoding with the new TMS320DM368 video processor.
Features and USP: The DM368 is well suited for video based applications, including HD video cameras, real time digital video recorders (DVRs), HD video communications systems and digital signage. Customers also benefit from an ARM performance boost of more than 40 per cent, enabling advanced application programming interfaces (APIs) for HD video processing and sophisticated user experiences. The DM368 provides multi-format HD video, including VC1, MPEG2, MPEG4, MJPEG and H.264 up to 1080p at 30 frames per second (fps) encoding. Multi-format decode, multi-rate, multi-stream and HD multi-channel are also supported. Audio, speech and other HD video codecs are available for the DM368 to allow greater flexibility and decreased design complexity.
