NGCodec is a startup founded in 2012 based in Silicon Valley creating video codec silicon Intellectual Property. The team is focused on the new HEVC / H.265 codec. NGCodec licenses its silicon IP technology to semiconductor manufacturers and OEMs.
NGCodec is developing the Next Generation of video encoder technology that implements the HEVC standard (and also supports AVC/H.264). Our products are delivered as Silicon IP in the form of RTL or net lists for implementation inside a System on a Chip (SoC) or inside an FPGA.
Video Compression from NGCodec
All video content you watch is lossy compressed. Without compression the video files would be too large to store or transmit. DVD and Blu-ray formats use compression, as does any video you watch on the web. Historically every 10 years a new industry-standard method to compress video is invented, leveraging Moore’s law. Twenty years ago MPEG-2/H.262 enabled the first mass market for standard definition digital video. Ten years ago MPEG 4 AVC/H.264 provided a 50% reduction in bit rates over MPEG-2 enabling 1080p HD applications. Now the same people who brought you H.264 have defined a new compression standard called High Efficiency Video Codec or HEVC/H.265, which can deliver another 50% reduction in bit rate over H.264/AVC. This enables online videos to download faster, reduces network bandwidth and enables high resolutions like UHD 4K.
