Mobilygen MG1264 Codec Supports H.264/AAC Video Capture

Compatible With Video iPod (December 30, 2005)

Mobilygen Inc., a leading provider of low-power H.264 codec ICs for mobile devices, announced today that its MG1264 chip supports real-time, high-quality H.264/ACC video capture compatible with the video iPod. This is the industry's first chip enabling manufacturers to easily add H.264 video recording capabilities compatible with video-enabled iPods, as well as PCs and Macs. The MG1264 requires only 125mW total chip power enabling USB powered devices to capture and encode H.264 30fps QVGA 768bps Baseline Profile video including 2-channel AAC high-fidelity stereo audio.

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.

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.
