Zero Latency

 

Invisible latency to the human eye
24 lines of video (180 μs in 4K60fps)

 

Multiview

Build a multiview application using Colibri codec with many video channels (as many simultaneous streams you need) without requiring a lot of extra memory.
 
A single decoder instance is, therefore enough, keeping the resource usage at an extremely low level.

Ideal for KVM

Thanks to its ability to compress any graphical content perfectly and its zero latency, Colibri is a perfect match for KVM applications.

 

Lightweight & Compact

Colibri is a very light video codec – fits even the most cost-efficient FPGAs.

We are thrilled to launch Colibri with industry-leading performance, powerful features, and incredible efficiency. Colibri is a video codec designed specifically for the AVoIP market.

 

Colibri covers all the requirements of the Pro-AV market: zero latency, high quality on 4K60 on 1GbE, support for 8K, low resources/power and support for Multiview at low-cost.

Our portfolio of Video Codecs

Colibri, VC-2 HQ and JPEG 2000

High-end image and video compression IP cores for professional applications. All codecs are scalable and flexible to match the specific constraints of each application (latency, image format, performance).

 

They support various image resolution, frame rate and latency constraints. They are also suitable for very complex systems with very high image resolution (4K/8K or more) or ultra-low latency.
