Samplify® is a provider of intellectual property solutions for the mobile, consumer electronic, and computing markets. Samplify's APAX™ technology is a universal encoder for multimedia and numerical data which solves memory, storage, and I/O bottlenecks on SoCs, mobile processors, CPUs, and GPUs. Applications for APAX™ include:
- Image sensor acquisition: APAX™ reduces memory bandwidth by 80% for Bayer matrix pixel data at depths up to 16 bits from next generation image sensors
- Motion estimation: APAX™ encodes reference frames for motion estimation during H.264/HEVC encoding by 75%
- Video decoding: APAX™ can operate on reference frames inside the H.264 video decoding algorithm, reducing memory bandwidth by 75% without impacting video quality.
- 3D Graphics: APAX™ encodes both vertices and textures with equivalent performance as ASTC
