CoreEL’s Intra Frame Codec is one of industry’s first FPGA based single chip I-Frame only encoding and decoding solutions.

CoreEL H.264 Intra frame encoder / decoder is available for both Xilinx and Altera FPGA cores. The Codec IP is optimised for very low latency applications. The codec solution is a single FPGA solution which is highly pipelined video solution.

The Codec design is fully autonomous. It does not require any external processor to aid the codec operations.This Codec IP hence would be used in Ingest/Archiving Video Servers, RF video links, ISM video applications and 3D video.

The H.264 Intra Frame codec IP has the following features:

  • High profile coding
  • Also supports Main & Constrained Baseline Profile
  • Bit depth up to 10 bits
  • 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 Chroma format
  • Supports resolutions up to Full HD (1920x1080p60) and 4Kp60
  • Supports progressive and interlaced formats for HD resolutions
  • High Bitrate support
  • Single Chip FPGA solution
  • Simultaneous multi-channel encode-decode
  • Rate Distortion Optimisation
  • Dual Pass encoding
  • CBR, VBR and Capped VBR rate control
  • Ultra low delay encoding mode
  • Supports both CABAC & CAVLC Entropy coding
  • Support for mathematically lossless coding in CAVLC entropy mode

MPEG-2 Video codec is still an important codec in the capacity of legacy products already existing in great numbers in the market. CoreEL MPEG-2 IP core is compliant with ISO/IEC 13818-2 standards (also standardised by ITU-T as H.262). The decoder solution is available both as FPGA Netlist and Source code.
