CTI's CDX-350 encoders and decoders
support both MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 formats and offer less than 250-millisecond end-to-end latency for near real-time transmission of high-quality images.
We expect the market will be small in 2005, as many decoder
IC suppliers have been conducting interoperability testing with encoder suppliers.
ADI, founded in 1999, is one of the most experienced vendors in multi-channel IRD (Integrated Decoder
264 software decoder
at the Intel Developer Forum," said Eduardo Perez, Ph.
Other software that will be available to Sharp customers in the future includes a WMV9 video decoder
, with support for up to 20 frames per second for the QCIF+ and 15 frames per second for the QVGA design, as well as a WMA9 audio decoder
and DRM10 decoder
The WMA Decoder
Library is targeted for low-cost applications in the consumer markets, such as audio docks, home audio receivers and automotive head units.
After the two decoders
update their proposed solutions, they compare notes again and then update their solutions again.
There are about 5-7 main chips in each digital TV, including digital signal tuner, digital signal demodulator, MPEG decoder
, back-end image processor and EMS memory.
LSI Logic offers the most extensive suite of proven digital video products including Reed-Solomon and Viterbi error correction decoders
, MPEG-2 audio and video decoders
, DigiCipher(R) II video, Dolby(R) AC-3 audio, 16 VSB demodulation, Quadrature Phase Shift Key (QPSK) demodulators, Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) and MiniRISC(TM) MIPS microprocessors.
Engineered to maximize design flexibility, the decoders
also support a wide range of audio standards including aac, aacPlus([TM]), Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus([R]), and Microsoft's WMA Pro.
The combination of Zenith's unique 16-VSB technology and LSI Logic's advanced CoreWare system-on-a-chip methodology will enable us to develop a solution which will be very attractive to manufacturers racing to achieve cost-effective, high-performance digital decoders
within a year.
Current set-top decoders
are based on sync-suppression and video inversion techniques.
By adding this Ogg Vorbis decoder
, we now have 19 encoders and decoders
available for our Xtensa HiFi 2 Audio Engine," stated Larry Przywara, director of strategic alliances for Tensilica.
NASDAQ:CNXT), a worldwide leader in semiconductor solutions for broadband communications and the digital home, today announced that its CX2417X family of high-definition television (HDTV) set-top box (STB) broadcast decoders
has been certified to support Dolby([R]) Digital Plus audio coding technology.
However, in the case of MPEG decoders
for DVD players and online network receivers, declining Average Selling Prices (ASPs) are bringing down revenue.
