A revamped video analysis and decoding core adds support for video standards like HEVC, AVS and decoding of 4:2:2 and 10-bit video. Decoding of MPEG-2 and AVC video is - obviously - still supported and the new decoding core enables easy addition of new video codecs (e.g. JPEG-2000 video) in the future.
