Description

HEVC is an efficient, but processing intensive video standard, that is said to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264 / MPEG-4 at the same level of video quality. This design shows how a power efficient, soft H.265 / HEVC solution, that scales across resolutions, frame rates & profiles, can be implemented in real time using one or more TMS320C6678 devices.  A specific use case of a single channel HEVC 720p30 real time encoder and single channel HEVC 1080p60 real time decoder is also included.  TI’s HEVC C66x HEVC encoder shows a bitrate saving, for the same visual quality, of greater than 40% compared with TI’s H.264 x encoder. TMS320C66x DSPs support both audio and video codecs.

Features
  • The TIDEP0037 reference design is tested, and includes a hardware reference (EVM), software and a user's guide.
  • TMDSEVM6678 EVM for a high performance, cost-efficient, standalone development platform, using the TMS320C6678 high-performance DSP based on TI's C66x Keystone multicore architecture.
  • This design includes schematics, design files, and a bill of materials.
  • HEVC/ H.265 encoder and decoder, MCSDK framework and other software packages
  • Design guide discusses performance and scalability across DSP cores and devices to achieve desired HEVC configuration
