Targeting the mobile market, Alphamosaic has developed a video processor with a difference:

VideoCore® is a flexible, low-power, two-dimensional DSP architecture, which is particularly effective at processing video.


Unlike most competing solutions, VideoCore® is fully programmable. This enables the user to programme and re-programme different applications in software. VideoCore® offers huge benefits regardless of whether you require a standard solution such as MPEG4, or a totally proprietary codec.

The architecture supports extremely fast functions for video analysis such as FFT, DCT, motion estimation, math morphology, and more.

The architecture offers fast support for video-processing functions such as image filtering, de-noising, de-blurring, and segmentation.

VideoCore® achieves up to 80 times higher ‘per-cycle’ performance than existing solutions. See how much gain the VideoCore architecture offers when compared with existing solutions executing the same operations.
