First VESA DSC Video Compression Training Announced by Hardent

August 5, 2014

Montreal, QC (PRWEB) August 05, 2014

Hardent, a member of VESA and a leading consulting firm providing training, electronic design, and management consulting services, has announced that it is now offering the world's first video compression training focused on the recently-adopted VESA DSC (display stream compression) standard. The first training sessions will be held in Asia this fall.

The current trend for real-time video compression in products such as mobile phones, tablets and ultra-high definition television (UHDTV), presents multiple electronic design challenges. Hardent's display stream compression training enables system architects, engineers and designers to get up to speed quickly with the very latest video compression technology and understand the practical implications of designing a product compatible with the VESA DSC v1.1 video compression standard. "With our DSC training, companies will better understand how adopting the VESA DSC standard can help them lower overall system costs, save power and reduce electromagnetic interferences (EMI) in their products," says Alain Legault, Principal at Hardent.

Hardent's video compression training comes as a natural extension to the company's experience of ASIC, SoC and FPGA design challenges in the video industry and active involvement with the VESA DSC Task Group that defined the VESA DSC v1.1 video compression standard. In April 2014, Hardent also announced the release of the first VESA-compliant DSC decoder intellectual property (IP), providing electronics manufacturers with a top-quality, ready-made solution to accelerate adoption of the VESA DSC standard in their product development.

As a Xilinx® Authorized Training Provider, ARM® Approved Training Center, and provider of system-level design and verification training, Hardent has trained over 7,000 engineers worldwide since 2007. Trainers at Hardent are also active engineers and focus on the practical application of concepts taught during training. Hardent's video compression training will be provided by a senior electronic design engineer who participated in VESA's DSC Task Group and who has extensive experience in both broadcast and consumer video product development.

The one-day VESA DSC training will offer an insight into the underlying structure of DSC video algorithms, DSC applications, usage models, system architecture, as well as implementation challenges for DSC encoder and decoder designs. Students will also gain an understanding of the resources available at VESA and the considerations for designing a product compatible with the VESA DSC v1.1 video compression standard.

The training will be launched early this fall in Seoul, South Korea and Tokyo, Japan. Additional course dates in other countries will be added to the Hardent training schedule in the coming months. Upon request, Hardent also offers customers the option of private, customized classes catered to individual team needs.
