TI implements H.265 on KeyStone multicore DSPs

Texas Instruments is offering a pre-production H.265 video codec optimized for its TMS320C6678 KeyStone-based multicore digital signal processor (DSP).

H.265, which is designed to take advantage of parallel processing, uses up to 50 percent less bandwidth, or two times compression, over the current H.264 standard while providing the same video quality.  The TI chip provides eight 1.25 GHz DSP cores capable of delivering 320 GMACs and 160 GFLOPs of combined fixed- and floating-point performance.

TI said its software-based implementation of the H.265 standard provides flexibility and scalability in developing real-time video infrastructure equipment such as multimedia gateways, IMS media servers, video conferencing servers and video broadcast equipment.
