New SC2M50 Designed for a Wide Range of High Image Quality Data Processing Needs for
Professional Audio and Video Applications
SUNNYVALE, Calif. April 11, 2017 – Socionext Inc., an emerging leader in advanced SoC based video and imaging solutions, today introduced the SC2M50, a new HEVC / H.265 Codec IC. Sample shipments will start in May 2017. Socionext will demonstrate the SC2M50 at the NAB show in Las Vegas, April 24-27, at booth SU13712 in the South Hall’s upper level.
Socionext delivered the world's first 4K/60p HEVC real-time video encoder, the MB86M31 and the HEVC / H.264 / MPEG Multi-format codec MB86M30, for high-end video transmission equipment. Built on the engineering expertise gained from these new products, Socionext has successfully implemented a high-image quality HEVC codec functionality into a small 25mm x 25mm package. The low power device consumes only 3.5W, which allows the IC to be utilized in battery-operated equipment. The SC2M50 supports 4K/60p video and 4:2:2 format, 10-bit input / output, which has excellent color reproducibility, making it suitable to cover a wide range of needs for professional video equipment, including portable devices. Samples come in May, with volume shipping in October 2017.
Socionext's partners are developing codec devices equipped with the SC2M50. At the NAB show in Las Vegas April 24-27, Socionext will have demonstrations of 4K video encoding and decoding using the latest codec devices.
