Imagination delivers industry's first visually lossless image compression for GPUs with a guaranteed reduction in memory footprint

PowerVR PVRIC4™technology provides significant cost savings for memory and bandwidth-constrained devices such as DTVs, smartphones and tablets

London, UK and Santa Clara, California, Oct. 31, 2018 – 

Imagination Technologies announces the groundbreaking PowerVR PVRIC4, the new generation of its powerful image compression technology which will enable SoC customers targeting devices such as DTVs, smartphones and tablets to reduce costs without a discernible loss of image quality. PVRIC4 enables random-access visually lossless image compression, ensuring bandwidth and memory footprint savings of at least 50%, and enabling systems to overcome performance bandwidth constraints.

Imagination provides PVRIC4 as a standalone IP block for SoC manufacturers to integrate into their multimedia pipelines. The block is already used by Imagination partners including Chips&Media who have access to PVRIC4 as part of a recent collaboration to deliver an optimum solution for a system leveraging a PowerVR GPU and WAVE5 video codec.

Linley Gwennap, principal analyst of The Linley Group, says: "Imagination's PVRIC4 is a significant advancement for GPU compression technology. The increasing demands on memory bandwidth and footprint are a real concern for SoC manufacturers, so the ability to combine lossless and visually lossless compression delivers both cost and bandwidth savings."
