Digital video compression involves sacrificing
some degree of picture quality for a lower bit rate that facilitates transmission and storage. Compression not only requires a high level of performance from a processor, but also some versatility in design, since different types of video applications have different sets of requirements for resolution, bandwidth and
resiliency. This white paper explains how the extended flexibility provided by Texas Instruments’ video encoders addresses these differences and takes full advantage of the options offered by advanced video compression standards. TI’s encoders offer easy-to-use application programming interfaces (APIs) in a standard system interface, simplifying video integration and optimization in a variety of applications.
