Argon Design licenses Argon Streams VP9 toChips&Media

Argon Streams VP9 provides full conformance testing of VP9 Video Decoders.

19thMarch 2015 – Cambridge, UK –  Argon Design Ltd, a leading supplier of advanced video verification solutions, has signed licensing and support agreements for Argon Streams VP9 withleading video codec IP providerChips&Media.

Google’s VP9 codec standard offers higher levels of video compression than previous video codecs, particularly for high resolution video, to allow internet streaming of Ultra High Definition video content.

Argon Streams VP9 is a set of conformance test bit-streams providing fullcoverage and verificationof VP9 video decoders. The bit-streams are derived directly from Google’s VP9 Reference Code using the same compiler technology that was developed for Argon’s highly successful HEVC bit-streams. The process uses directed random numbers to ensure that the bit-streams provide comprehensive coverage testing of all functions, value ranges and cross coverage combinations in the VP9 specification. Argon Streams VP9 includes full support for VP9 profiles 0, 1, 2 and 3.

Gilligan Choe, Head of Sales for Chips&Media states that, “We have had excellent results using Argon Streams to verify our HEVC decoder family, so it was a natural choice to use Argon Streams VP9 for theverification of our VP9 decoder.Chips&Media is now ready to release a VP9 decoder together with a HEVC decoder in a single core (WAVE412). This new IP core providesan extremely small size for semiconductor companies integratingboth HEVC and VP9 in their System on Chip designs“.

Alan Scott, CEO of Argon Design, adds, “We are delighted to announcethis license for Argon Streams VP9 with an industry leading companysuch as Chips&Media”.

Argon Streams is sold and supported worldwide by Chipstart. For more information visit www.argondesign.com/streamsVP9 , contact your local Chipstart sales representative, or email Email Contact .
