In addition to the conventional digital broadcasting, new applications such as video distribution through Internet Protocol (IP), infrastructure surveillance and medical imaging are driving the expansion of the

video transmission equipment market. Requirements for these kinds of equipment include higher stability and lower overall system cost. To keep pace with such needs, the transition is underway from software-based to hardware-based architectures.

Socionext’s new codec IC meets those challenges, providing essential functions such as transcoding of multiple video streams and high image quality encoding at low bit rates.

Developed based on the company's long-time experience on signal processing technology, the SC2M15 is equipped with all the necessary and sufficient functions for video transmission, which includes simultaneous transcoding of three channels of H.264 / full-HD video and audio, high image quality encoding at a low bit rate such as 1080i60 and 2Mbps.

In addition, the SC2M15 is designed as a slave-type device, meaning it can be controlled by external CPU through serial interface, giving users the freedom to design various equipment for wide range of applications including digital broadcasting, security systems, and medical imaging, as well as video capture and in-house video communication systems.
