Philips Selects Trident's DTV Chipset Solutions To Power Its EISA "Best 3DTV" Award Winner

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Trident Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRID), a leading provider of set-top box and TV semiconductor solutions, today announced that the Trident TV550 System-on-Chip (SoC) and FRC-V 240Hz Picture Quality Engine have been chosen to power Philips' complete range of Smart LED and 3D TV solutions featuring Philips' 3D Max technology.  3D Max remains the pinnacle of Philips' home 3D technology and is included in all of Philips' top-end performance products powered by Trident DTV chipset solutions, including the 9000 series Smart LED TVs, 8000 series Smart LED TVs, and Cinema 21:9 Platinum series.

"We have continued to integrate Trident's DTV solutions into our products because they deliver the best picture quality, including superior Motion Estimation and Motion Compensation performance in 3D, and a scalable design that can be uniquely tailored for our mid- and high-end premium models," said Chris Sluys, chief operating officer, Business Group TV at Philips.  "No other TV chipset manufacturer has the breadth of systems-level expertise that Trident offers and this has enabled us to deliver a new class of smart- and 3D-capable TVs."

"We are honored to be a part of Philips' EISA award-winning platform," said Dr. Bami Bastani, president and CEO of Trident.  "The new Philips 3D Max series TVs benefit from key features in Trident's TV550 and FRC-V products, such as our passive and active 3D support with superior MEMC technology, 2D dimming for best-in-class black levels, and sharpness and contrast enhancements.  We were able to adapt our core technology to meet Philips' particular needs and help Philips bring to market a complete range of smart- and 3D TV-enabled devices."
