V-Nova And Realtek Semiconductor Support MPEG-5 Part 2 LCEVC

V-Nova and Realtek Semiconductor has announced support for MPEG-5 Part 2 LCEVC in Realtek STB SoCs.

This makes Realtek the first chipset provider to offer support for LCEVC.

V-Nova and Realtek have been cooperating extensively on developing and deploying multiple implementations of the LCEVC standard for both the existing and future portfolio of Realtek STB SoCs. LCEVC support provides the high levels of security, computational power, and performance required by operators and service providers for exceptional-quality premium content.

MPEG-5 part 2 LCEVC is the latest MPEG and ISO standard. Instead of replacing existing codecs, LCEVC enhances them, reducing both costs and energy consumption of the transcoding process by up to 70%. It also augments compression efficiency by up to 40%, with benefits that stack upon those of other methods to improve video compression, rather than being an alternative.

The addition of LCEVC to the capabilities of its STB SoCs underscores Realtek's commitment to staying at the forefront of video decoding technology, and delivering complete state-of-the-art solutions that enable its customers to deliver the highest quality services in the most efficient way.

V-Nova's CEO, Guido Meardi, stated: "V-Nova is thrilled to announce this strategic collaboration with Realtek. By integrating MPEG-5 Part 2 LCEVC into their chipsets, Realtek demonstrates being at the forefront of market adoption of this technology. We look forward to the upcoming joint projects that will shape the future of video quality and efficiency."

Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Yee-Wei Huang said: "We pay particular attention to the needs and requests of our clients, and it is clear that LCEVC is gaining traction and adoption. Realtek takes pride in integrating MPEG-5 Part 2 LCEVC into our STB chipsets roadmap as this strategic move underscores our commitment to equipping our clients with innovative solutions that enhance their capabilities and efficiency."
