Synaptics chooses Allegro DVT for compression compliance testing

Video codec compliance test suite and semiconductor video IP provider Allegro DVT has been selected by Synaptics Incorporated for video compression compliance.

The fabless semiconductor company will utilise Allegro DVT’s VVC test streams to ensure full compliance of Synaptics’ products with the new emerging VVC video compression standard.

Versatile Video Coding (VVC), also known as H.266, is the latest video compression standard that was finalised in 2020. It is the successor of HEVC/H.265 and was launched to improve compression performance and versatility.

Craig Stein, SVP and GM of Mobile and IoT at Synaptics, said: “The depth and breadth of testing that Allegro’s VVC test suite solution provides ensures Synaptics’ VVC decoder implementation is robust and fully compliant with the new VVC video compression standard.”

Nathalie Brault, COO at Allegro DVT said: “We are proud that Synaptics has selected our VVC test suite proving once more the quality of our compliance stream solutions. As the compression efficiency of new video codecs increases, so does the implementation complexity. More than ever, the industry needs a trusted supplier of test streams to ensure 100% compliance with video compression standards.”
