Industry's Lowest Power MG1264 Requires Only 125mW Enabling USB Bus-Powered DVR Functionality Compatible With Video iPods(TM), PCs, and Macs
People want to control what they watch, and when they watch it. Easy conversion of personal content, and real-time DVR functionality, are essential ingredients to mass-market adoption of video in portable devices. According to a recent Jupiter Research survey, 51% of consumers would watch movies on a portable media player and 55% of them are interested in watching TV shows.
"Consumers want simple and easy personalization of their video content," says Steve Musallam, vice president of product marketing at Mobilygen. "Our MG1264 provides superior hardware based H.264/AAC encoding quality and an inexpensive solution to building low-power devices that capture in real-time 30fps TV-quality video for new mobile products like the video iPod."
Mobilygen's unique chip architecture is dedicated to low-power video processing. The patented EVE (Enabling Video Everywhere) architecture was used to implement the MG1264. It includes an advanced video pre-processor that greatly improves H.264 encoder efficiency, and patented low-power H.264 video coding algorithms developed specifically to maximize video quality. The MG1264 is capable of encoding H.264 up to full D1 video resolution and 2-channel AAC audio requiring only 185mW of total chip power.
Availability and Pricing
The MG1264 is fully qualified and available in production volumes now. Commercial samples and evaluation boards are also available. The MG1264 is priced at less than $10 in production volumes.
