Mistral has extensive video expertise in designing digital video designs that support video processing and video streaming for a wide variety of applications in the consumer, industrial and medical segments. These devices have been built across platforms like AndroidEmbedded LinuxWindows Embedded based on high-end multi-core SoCs designed for SDI Video Streaming, 4K Video Streaming and HD video streaming applications.

Digitization of content and converging technologies has in the recent years radically changed the way content is managed and distributed among consumers, particularly in the media and entertainment space. Users expect digital video designs that support video portability across devices: from mobiles to in-vehicle gadgets to broadcast and interactive internet applications.

Mistral is the preferred video expertise contracting partner for leading companies in the portable video and high-end professional video processing and streaming domain.  Both these technologies require diverse handling.


High-end Professional Digital Video Designs

High-end professional digital video designs and multimedia systems are power hungry and the emphasis is on video quality with legacy support and managing multiple high-resolution video streams. These systems are primarily used in defense and industrial applications. The SoCs made for such applications (PNX Series from NXP and the Texas Instruments DaVinci series) are designed for HD video streaming, 4K video streaming and SDI video streaming (transcode, encode & decode). The focus while building such systems would be on achieving quality output and performance.


Portable Digital Video Designs Expertise

Portable Video designs is most commonly used in consumer electronics applications. Most of these products are battery-powered, and involves other features like WiFi, GPS, GSM, Bluetooth etc. The processor resource available here are limited and the emphasis is on good quality video with low power consumption requiring video optimization during encoding and video streaming (HD video streaming / SDI video streaming / 4K video streaming).

Mistral’s team has extensive digital video expertise, specializing in digital video distribution encompassing capture, encode and transmission of video. Mistral provides a cost-effective digital video designs, that involves design trade-offs for required system performance, hardware complexity, and power consumption. Mistral’s experience in the video domain includes designing of products like: Network Video Recorder, Surveillance Cameras, Portable Media Player, In-vehicle infotainment, In-flight Entertainment systems and Internet enabled devices.
