The partnership combines the strengths of two industry leaders to deliver vastly improved multimedia SoC products for the consumer market and industry applications.
Under terms of the partner agreement, GOKE and Chips&Media will work together to serve customers seeking multimedia solutions for their future needs. The combination of GOKE's SoC platforms and Chips&Media's unique video codec IP solutions deliver a best-in-class solution for multimedia products. GOKE will also bring its know-how for the local markets and unparalleled support capabilities to the partnership, with Chips&Media bringing some of the most advanced video codec technology in the market.
"Chips&Media has been one of the leaders in the video codec technology addressing high performance and high-quality video codec applications that go far beyond traditional video solutions," said Jeffery Jiang, CTO of GOKE, "We are proud to have Chips&Media within our global partner network and we look forward to working closely with Chips&Media to jointly satisfy our customers' most advanced multimedia requirements."

Based on rising popularity, 4K UHD products are beyond HD products on the market, and there has been a gradual transition of video standards from H.264 to HEVC. In the wave of these changes, Chips&Media not only can provide high performance and low power video codec solutions but also can provide lossy and lossless frame buffer compression technologies to save total system bandwidth. This year Chips&Media launched multi-standard IPs WAVE510, WAVE512, and WAVE515 offering HEVC, VP9, and AVS2 decode as the second-generation WAVE5 series. 4K 120fps encoding capable WAVE520 is also planned to be released very soon.
