High Quality, Cost-Effective Audio and Video Codecs

for Consumer Device Manufacturers

ArcSoft(R), Inc., the leading provider of digital imaging software for consumer devices, today announced the availability of powerful, flexible MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 codecs. Accompanying the codecs are comprehensively documented SDKs and sample applications that demonstrate the usage of the codec APIs.
