Hantro says new algorithm doubles quality

I’m thrilled. No really, progress is always a good thing. But I would be a lot happier to see some progress made in the cell reception technology as well.

Hantro says its new 4200 MPEG-4/H.263 software encoder for ARM-based wireless products will double image quality (see below) and reduce power requirements for wireless video applications, according to the Finnish company’s press release.

The release says, “Reducing power consumption and CPU load by up to 10%, the encoder incorporates a new motion estimation algorithm which applies an adaptive indexed search method to reduce computational complexity and increase overall performance…. Source: Reiter’s Camera Phone Report
