Research and Markets: HEVC Decoding in Consumer Devices: The New Video Compression Standard, HEVC, Is Expected To Be Finalized In Early 2013
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/82svx6/hevc_decoding_in)
has announced the addition of the "HEVC
Decoding in Consumer Devices" report to their offering.
This report looks at the ability of various devices to decode HEVC now
and in the future through software and hardware implementations.
Worldwide unit shipment and installed base forecasts are provided from
2011-2016 for smartphones, tablets, PCs, portable media players,
streaming media players, video game consoles, Blu-ray players, digital
TV sets, and set-top boxes capable of decoding HEVC.
Te new video compression standard jointly developed by the ITU and MPEG
is almost complete. The standard is expected to be finalized in January
2013. Many vendors of encoders, decoders, transcoders, and SoCs are
readying products now for shipment as soon as the standard is complete.
Others will move into production later in 2013.
MRG believes HEVC compression will be adopted most quickly for Internet
video streaming over wired and wireless networks to both tethered and
mobile devices. The bandwidth savings of about 50% over H.264, which is
often used today, will reduce demand on networks and save transmission
Some consumer products like TVs and set--top boxes will wait for
hardware solutions that integrate HEVC decoding. Others like PCs and
mobile devices will take advantage of software decoding that will run on
the host CPU.
The large number of mobile devices and PCs that ship each year will
provide all the shipments of consumer devices with HEVC decoding
capability in the early years of the forecast enabling the units shipped
each year to reach one billion in 2012. In 2014, TVs and the devices
that connect to them will start to ship with HEVC decoding integrated,
which will push the market past the two billion per year mark in 2016.
The deliverable is comprised of a PDF and Excel spreadsheet.
