Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 released, with AV1 8K60 decoding

Quote:
This is the first Snapdragon chip to include support for AV1, a royalty-free video codec backed by a huge list of heavy-hitters like Amazon, Apple, Arm, Facebook, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Mozilla, Netflix, Nvidia, and Samsung. Netflix and YouTube have gone all-in on AV1 by making support for the codec mandatory for hardware manufacturers seeking to license these services.

Qualcomm also finally enabled AV1 video decoding streams up to 8K at 60fps (with HDR) are supported.

GSMArena
Finally!

The interesting part is their "statement": https://www.qualcomm.com/content/dam...-Statement.pdf

Quote:
“Qualcomm is a leader in foundational video compression technology. For over 20 years, we
have invented technology widely used in video codecs implemented and used by devices and content
services. Our patent portfolio is used in multiple codecs and includes standard essential patents to
H.265/HEVC, H.266/VVC, and MPEG-5/EVC video coding standards, as well as the proprietary VP9 and
AV1 video codecs.
Regarding the Alliance for Open Media (AOM) Patent License 1.0, Qualcomm has not accepted the
unilateral terms asserted by AOM with respect to Qualcomm’s intellectual property and has notified
AOM of this position. Qualcomm reserves all its intellectual property rights, including with respect to
the use of any of Qualcomm’s patented technology to implement any AOM specification.”

Sounds like a coded excuse for being the near last to the party while promoting their own proprietary stuff that will never take off (aka EVC).

Also sounds like they are using this as a pretext to support the AV1 patent pool SisVel - how slimy of them.

They are not currently listed as a patent owner on the sisvel website. I wonder whether they will join sisvel and list their patents on there.

Are they (or anyone) actively promoting EVC? I haven't heard anything about any sorts of real-world EVC deployment plans all year.

EVC has an interesting model and promising elements, but no one seems to be promoting it for anything.
