The SVPTM video processor from Trident Microsystems ( http://www.tridentmicro.com ) is a highly integrated system-on-a-chip device, targeting the converging HDTV-ready and PC-ready LCD TV, PDP TV, and DLP TV applications where high precision processing of video and data are the requirements.
Trident`s DCRe – Digital Cinema Reality engine, is integrated inside the SVPTM to provide the most natural cinema-realistic images. The DCRe technology integrates advanced 3D-comb video decoding, advanced motion adaptive de-interlacing, object-based digital noise reduction, advanced 6 th generation scaler, film mode support, average picture level (APL), edge smoothing and dynamic sharpness enhancement.
Trident`s patented Unified Memory Architecture (UMA) that allows frame rate conversion, 3D comb video decoding, and video enhancement processing to share the same memory buffer that is made up of high-speed and cost-effective PC graphic memory.
All these advanced digital processing techniques combined with a true 10-bit video data processing for the most optimal video fidelity to provide the most natural and cinema quality video images. Designed for maximum system design flexibility, SVPTM integrates all video interfaces to support converging digital video, analog video, and PC data applications.
The users of Trident`s single chip SVPTM video processor(s) will benefit from many features while maintaining a price competitive advantage over the existing solution(s).
