Chips&Media, Inc., is a provider of intellectual property for integrated circuits (commonly called "chips") such as system on a chip technology for encoding and decoding video (video codecs). It is based in Korea.


Since 2003, the company developed video technology. Its video semiconductor intellectual property cores (IP cores) cover video coding formats such as MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.263, H.264/AVC, VC-1, RealVideo, AVS, MVC, VP8, Sorenson, Theora, AVS, AVS+, HEVC(H.265) and VP9. Their technologies are used by licensees including Freescale,[1][2][3] VIA,[4] Realtek and Novatek[5] Innofidei,[6] and Telechips.

The company announced an image signal processing product in 2016.[7]


WAVE IP cores encode and decode video for ultra-high-definition television.


Its BODA video IP cores decode formats including H.264/AVC, VC-1, MVC, VP8, H.263,, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, AVS, RealVideo, Sorenson,[8] and Theora with support in resolutions from D1 through to Full HD (1080p). Among them is the first fully hardware decoder for VP8 that can decode Full HD resolution VP8 streams at 60 frames per second.[9]


CODA video IP cores are multi-standard video engines that provide encoding and decoding, with support for simultaneous multiple channel or format, suited to mobile/portable handset, digital camcorders, home multimedia devices, video conferencing and video surveillance.
