Mali-V60 Series Video Processors

ARM® Mali™-V61 brings high performance video encoding to ARM’s innovative video processor (VPU) product line.  Adding high quality HEVC encode and VP9 encode/decode, Mali-V61 VPU provides freedom to our partners with the ability to simultaneously encode and decode multiple streams. Scalable across all levels of mobile and home multimedia solutions, the Mali-V61 VPU exceeds current premium mobile requirements and provides the simplest and easiest way to support VP9-ready, 4K media, whilst maintaining ARM’s low power, low latency and small area heritage.

As video content is rapidly becoming the communication method of choice for the next generation of device users, it’s never been more important to be able to support a range of the latest codecs like VP9 and HEVC alongside legacy codecs (see below).  Mali-V61 VPU is optimized to work seamlessly with other products in the Mali Multimedia suite or as a standalone video solution for next generation content.
