Socionext to Demonstrate World’s First Single-Chip 8K Video Decoder
and Most Efficient Video and Broadcast Device Technology at
Annual NAB Show
Compact, Leading Edge 4K and 8K HEVC Video Processors Feature Low Power Encoding,
Decoding for Full Range of Content and Service Providers
Sunnyvale, Calif., March 31, 2016 --- Socionext Inc. will showcase a complete set of
advanced video and broadcast demonstrations for content and service providers at the
annual NAB Show in at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 18-21.
At booth SU13913 in the South Hall’s upper level, Socionext will highlight its new 8K HEVC
decoder device for 8K broadcast receiver systems. Demonstrations include 4K and 8K
real-time encoding and decoding, multi-channel encoding with statistical multiplexing, smart
Interconnect architecture for remote maintenance and production systems, along with HDR
support designed specifically for video broadcast content and service providers.
New 8K-resolution HEVC Video Decoder
The new SCH801A, designed for content providers who require fast turnaround video with
minimal power, was developed in collaboration with NHK (Nippon Hoso Kyokai,Japan
Broadcasting Corporation). The term 8K represents an ultra-high definition format of
digital video with 33 million pixels, 16 times the number in a typical HD system now.
The SCH801A can decode 8K 60P at one channel with a single chip. It is equipped with one
lane of PCI Express Gen2, and four channels of HDMI 2.0 Tx as external interfaces.
In addition to decoding 8K HEVC, Socionext is designing solutions to support all the
functions needed for 8K broadcast receiver system, including 16APSK demodulator, DTV
SoC and others. The company is also developing technologies for non-TV applications such
as video distribution through network and digital signage, as part of its objective to be the
world's first 8K total solution provider in the industry.
MB86M31 Features Versatility, Low Power
The MB86M31 is a chipset that compresses a 4K 60P real time HEVC video using only a
quarter rack unit. Chipset power requirements are only 8W, providing a 90 percent power
saving compared with other solutions, many of which use multiple rack units and require up
to 600W. The reduced power and size are vital for next generation high-density video
processing servers and portable devices like production cameras.
The “M31” enables the transmission of 4K high quality, high definition video through live
broadcast or network distribution, while using about half the bandwidth required with the
conventional H.264. It is also compatible with YUV 4:2:2 10bit encoding, which is essential
for professional use.
The MB86M31 supports multi-channel encoding with full HD or lower resolution video, which
enables higher density for professional encoding. It will also support StatMux-ready features
by adopting optional firmware. This feature helps to reduce the total bandwidth consumption
of multi-channel streams in combination with the external StatMux controller.
