Webinar Overview

Use of video compression will be essential to address the proliferation of high-performance displays in next-generation mobile, AR/VR and automotive use cases. This webinar will provide a guide to the two video compression standards, VESA VDC-M and VESA DSC, that are adopted into the MIPI DSI-2℠ specification.  

Aimed at engineers who are familiar with the DSI-2 interface, the webinar will cover:

  • The video bandwidth challenge for high-performance displays
  • Why and when to use video compression
  • Overview of the VESA DSC and VDC-M compression standards
  • Mobile, AR/VR and other mobile-influenced market considerations
  • Automotive market considerations - functional safety, cable harness weight, etc.
  • Comparison of DSC and VDC-M functionality and power, performance, and area (PPA) usage using a display driver integrated circuit (DDIC) example
  • DSC and VDC-M use case examples

The presentation will be followed by a live question-and-answer session.
