Hantro, the leading provider of video enabling technology for mobile devices today announced that their H.264/AVC software solution will be demonstrated on the SANYO LC690132A application processor at 3GSM.

The LC690132A, which incorporates Hantro’s MPEG4 hardware acceleration for encode and decode up to CIF resolution at 30fps has been commercially available since October 2004. By adding the new software 6100 decoder and playback engine from Hantro, SANYO is able to provide an immediate upgrade of H.264 capability to existing customers.

"Hantro have been the preferred provider of MPEG4 video technology for our silicon solutions since 2001." Says Mr. Narihito Takada, SANYO "They have consistently proven their capability to deliver competitive solutions ahead of the market and we are pleased to be able to increase the value of our offering with their H.264/AVC solution."

Implemented in ANSI-C, Hantro’s 6100 decoder and playback engine is easily ported to multiple operating systems. Optimised for handheld devices and enabling a fast time-to-market, it is an ideal solution for adding functionality to existing platforms. Capable of QVGA, 15fps playback with simultaneous audio in existing ARM9 core based processors, the 6100 brings H.264 capability to most mid-range and high end handsets that are currently available.
