FPGA and HD H.264

In the market, the following serveral companies with HD h.264 ASIC chips

Magnum Semiconductor provides single-chip HD AVC encoder the consumer market 

and multichip AVC HD encoder for the distribution and contribution markets, based on Domino Platform.

Fujitsu has announced a 1080i encoding/decoding IC that will be introduced

in March 2007, priced at 120 USD. The chip will be produced in a 90 nm process 

and will support High Profile Level 4 (up to 25 Mbit/s).[14]

Horizon Semiconductors has developed a family (Hz3120, Hz4010, Hz4120) of single-chip 

HD codec, decoder, and transcoder products that support H.264, VC-1, MPEG-4, and MPEG-2 

in resolutions up to 1080p @ 60 frame/s. Horizon's SoC solutions integrate an audio codec,

an HD display processor, CPU, 2D/3D graphics accelerator, a high-bandwidth transport processor,
CA/DRM unit, video pre-processor, and a wide variety of advanced connectivity and peripherals.

Horizon's ICs are designed in accordance with world-leading secure processor architectures, 

enabling complete content protection in compliance with numerous Conditional Access and 

Digital Rights Management schemes.

The DMS-02 media processor from 3DLabs promises to encode D1 video stream (BT.601 216 Mbit/s) 

at 30 frame/s[15](equivalent to High 4:2:2 Profile, Level 3).

Ambarella has unveiled single chip platforms that encode/decode 1080p601080i60 and 720p60 video. [16]

VITEC Multimedia [17] is offering with VMC-5400, a broadcast quality AVC Main Profile real time encoder. 

The board is a standard PMC mezzanine card for PC and CompactPCI platforms.

Aspex Semiconductor [18] has announced [19]a single-chip High Profile 1920x1080 HD Encoder, 

derived from its professional studio-quality board level products.

Elgato Turbo.264 hardware encoder for Mac OS X connects via USB 2.0 and presents itself as 

three QuickTime components. Although intended for Elgato's EyeTV software, it will work with 

any software on Mac OS X using the QuickTime framework, such as Final Cut. The maximum resolution 

supported is 800x600.

Mobilygen's en-ViE family consists of two products to address a range of H.264 Codec requirements. 

The MG2500 is an entry level SOC supporting dual SD encoding or up to 1280x720p30 HD encoding. 

The MG3500 Codec supports HD encoding at resolutions up to 1920x1080i60. In addition to an 

advanced H.264 Codec there is an MPEG2 decoder and a JPEG Codec which will also support MJPEG applications.

StarVedia's VS316m video server module is a tiny 4x4cm board which can convert 

analog NTSC or PAL composite video signal to an ISMA compliant signal: MPEG-4 over RTSP.

EyeLytics has a H264 encoder IP core for ASIC and FPGA. The encoder supports main profile 4.1 level 

including 1080p30 and 720p60. It is multi-channel capable and supports image resolution up to 2Kx2K. 

The core can handle 720p30 video when put inside a low cost Altera CycloneIII chip.

On2 Technologies provides multi-format hardware encoder IP cores that will support up to 720p 

resolution full motion H.264/AVC video "Hantro Hardware Video Codec IP".
