Silicon Image Announces New Video Processors For Next-Generation Home Theater Applications

Stocks in this article: SIMG

Silicon Image (NASDAQ: SIMG), a leading provider HD connectivity solutions, today announced two new upscaling video processors, designed to also enhance the picture quality of streaming or downloaded Internet video. Both products incorporate Silicon Image’s proprietary VRS ® ClearView technology, which performs real-time video format conversion including scaling of SD and HD content to resolutions up to 4Kx2K using adaptive techniques designed to scale both video and graphics. As the industry prepares to make the next transition to ultra-high resolution 4K displays, Silicon Image is at the forefront ─ delivering the technology and product solutions for next-generation consumer electronics (CE) devices with its advanced video processors.

“With the growing trend of streaming media and downloaded Internet video, consumers can instantly view content but often have to sacrifice video quality due to heavy compression,” said Alex Chervet, senior director of marketing at Silicon Image, Inc. “Integrating our new video processors with VRS ClearView technology into home theater devices not only improves image quality but provides a future-proof solution so that today’s Blu-ray players or A/V receivers can take advantage of tomorrow’s 4K displays.”

According to market research firm NPD In-Stat, HDMI-enabled Blu-ray player sales are forecast at 51 million units in 2012, growing to 81 million in 2015. This represents an annual growth (CAGR) of 25.7 percent (Source: “DVI and HDMI: DVI Declines While HDMI Soars,” November 2011). Blu-ray players and A/V receivers continue to feature leading-edge CE technology innovations. By integrating a video processor with VRS ClearView technology, these devices can improve video quality and deliver a “cinema like” experience as new 4K TVs are introduced on the market.

Silicon Image’s new video processors generate significantly improved video quality using VRS ClearView technology to reduce compression noise, remove edge artifacts and enhance detail. In addition, both processors feature integrated HDMI and MHL interfaces. VRS ClearView technology builds on the production-proven VRS video processing technologies developed by Anchor Bay Technologies, which was acquired by Silicon Image in 2011.

These new video processors will be showcased at Silicon Image’s demo suite during CEATEC Japan 2012, Oct. 2-5, 2012 in Tokyo, Japan.
