Trident Unveils The World's First Integrated 240 Hz Digital TV SoC For Android-Based Smart Televisions

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Trident Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRID), a leading provider of set-top box and TV semiconductor solutions, today announced its new Fusion HiDTV family of DTV system-on-chips (SoCs) designed for the next generation of Smart-TVs with 200/240Hz video frame rate capabilities running on the Android platform.  The Fusion HiDTV family integrates multiple CPUs and Trident's patented MEMC technology to deliver outstanding picture quality, OpenGL 2.0 3D graphics capabilities, Android OS support, and the ability to display to 21:9 screens for a true cinematic experience.

The connected home market has been driving the emergence of innovative features such as 3D-TVs and 240Hz televisions.  The higher refresh rates of 240Hz TVs deliver significantly better picture quality, particularly in larger screen TVs, and 240Hz is also an essential element for delivering quality 3D content.  With its new Fusion HiDTV family, Trident is well positioned to emerge as a leader in connected TVs, which market research firm Display Search predicts will represent 43% of the total worldwide market by 2014.  

"We believe that the Fusion HiDTV family will fuel our growth in the highly connected Smart TV market segments with its outstanding CPU and graphics performance, superior picture quality, 3D performance and 21:9 cinemascope viewing ability," said Dr. Bami Bastani, CEO and President of Trident.  "The TV market continues to be driven by new innovations such as connectivity and 3D, and Trident is well positioned to lead this technology evolution with its feature-rich TV platform."

About the Fusion HiDTV Family

The Fusion HiDTV family is a highly integrated SoC platform that includes multiple CPUs, ATSC/DVB-T/DVB-C/ISDB-T and analog demodulators, a secure programmable transport stream demultiplexer, a high performance 3D graphics engine, a 3D-TV-capable multi-standard multi-stream HD video decoder, an HD video encoder, and a programmable audio decoder with post processor that supports several of Trident's industry-leading audio processing algorithms.
