ViXS Systems

ViXS Systems is a global fabless semiconductor company based in Toronto, Canada that was founded in 2001. The company enables advanced video processing technologies for Consumer Electronic (CE) and Personal Computer (PC) platforms. The company has developed advanced video codecs with unprecedented capabilities for processing, managing, protecting and distributing broadcast-quality video. ViXS supplies IC solutions and full production reference designs to the world's top CE and PC manufacturers, OEMs and ODMs. ViXS XCode video processors are deployed worldwide in a variety of designs such as IPTV/cable set-top boxes, digital TVs, PVRs, and Blu-ray and HD DVD products. Unique video technologies developed by ViXS, such as encoding, transcoding and decoding, provide CE and PC manufacturers with the necessary feature differentiators they need to become leaders in their respective markets. An additional ingredient for the success of these products is ViXS’ support of worldwide Conditional Access (CA) and Digital Rights Management (DRM) whereby one product platform can support worldwide coverage. To date, ViXS has issued and filed over 100 patents.


ViXS' XCodeTM 2100 series is a family of single/multi-stream MPEG encoders and transcoders that provide video MPEG processing technology. With capabilities such as video compression, re-formatting, encryption and secure transfer of digital and analog video, the XCodeTM 2100 series is used by some of the world's top CE and PC manufacturers including Hitachi, HP, Sony, and Gateway. Using ViXS’ proprietary technology, the XCodeTM 2100 series maintains high-quality video at low bitrates virtually eliminating the expected high-vs.-low bitrate quality trade-off. CE products that contain ViXS ICs feature extensive PVR functionality, DVD authoring, home movie conversion and support for portable media devices. These CE products support digital and analog inputs, SD and HD streams and high-speed transcoding (file format conversion). ViXS embedded solutions offer a common engine for all integrated devices while supporting multiple streams, picture-in-picture (PIP), simultaneous watch-and-record and full content protection and conditional access. ViXS solutions enable efficient storage on hard drives and DVDs using a shrink-to-fit option.


ViXS is a global company with offices worldwide. The company’s head office is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Sales offices are located in the U.S.A., Germany, Japan and Taiwan. Research and Development facilities are located in Canada, the U.S.A. China and Hong Kong.
