TranSwitch’s New HDplay Products With MHL Capability Support Mobile Device Connectivity For HDTVs And Pico Projectors

Stocks in this article: TXCC

TranSwitch Corporation (NASDAQ: TXCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions in the rapidly growing consumer electronics and telecommunications markets, today announced new HDplay™ products with MHL™ capability to support mobile device connectivity for HDTVs and pico projectors. MHL is a video interface standard that is optimized for smartphones, tablets, and other portable consumer electronics. The Company’s new HDplay transceivers represent the industry’s first and only single-IC solutions offering HDMI®, DisplayPort™, and MHL connectivity in support of new market trends for HDTVs and pico projectors.

A recent report by DisplaySearch projects that the global HDTV market will grow from 245 million units in 2012 to over 275 million units in 2016. Pico projectors represent a new generation of devices designed to project video content onto a wall or screen. According to a recent report by Pacific Media Associates, the emerging pico projector market is expected to grow from 3 million units in 2011 to 58 million units in 2015. Many HDTVs and pico projectors are expected to add MHL video interface, which is optimized for mobile devices, in addition to HDMI and DisplayPort. According to the MHL Consortium, there are over 100 global licensees of the standard, including TranSwitch, which is helping to drive adoption of MHL in multimedia products.

“Working closely with leading OEMs and ODMs, TranSwitch is adding mobile connectivity support to its HDplay product portfolio to address new market trends driving the performance, cost, and functionality requirements of next-generation HDTVs and pico projectors,” said Amir Bar-Niv, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the High Speed Interconnect Business at TranSwitch. “As the industry’s only single-IC to combine HDMI, DisplayPort, and MHL connectivity standards, our new HDplay transceivers address the needs of leading customers to offer smartphone and tablet connectivity in their products, while reducing design complexity, minimizing cost, and maintaining performance up to 4K x 2K resolutions. We are very pleased to announce these solutions during the 2013 International CES, where we will continue our engagement with market leaders through scheduled meetings and demonstrations with most of the industry’s top HDTV manufacturers.”
