WOODCLIFF LAKE, USA: Semiconductor intellectual property (IP) providers CAST Inc. and Trilinear Technologies Inc. have signed a partnership agreement by which imaging and video IP products developed by Trilinear will also be available through CAST.
"Our advanced video and image processing solutions are helping more and more customers develop HD video products that are extremely competitive in quality, features, and time to market," said Carl Ruggiero, CEO at Trilinear. "We strive to develop the best products possible, and are pleased to now partner with CAST, a team of people who share our commitment to product quality and have a long track record of delivering value and success to their customers."
The new partnership enables CAST to offer a broader, highly competitive suite of video and image processing IP, building on the H.264 and JPEG 2000 encoders, JPEG cores, and other IP the company already offers. The new CAST products sourced from Trilinear will include video and image decoders, image scalers, a video deinterlacer, graphics controllers, various development platforms, and more. CAST expects to begin offering these products next month.
"Our 17-year record as a successful IP provider is based in part on seeking out best-in-class development partners and establishing deep, enduring relationships with them," said Nikos Zervas, vice president of marketing at CAST. "We're excited to now be taking that step with Trilinear, and to be making their line of advanced, proven image and video IP solutions available directly to CAST customers."
