Companies Collaborate On Wireless HDAV Solution

Sigma Designs and Fujitsu Microelectronics America Inc. are teaming up to deliver wireless High-Definition Audio Video (HDAV) solutions for manufacturers of consumer electronics. The companies will demonstrate wireless HDAV reference designs at the International CES in Las Vegas next month. The reference designs enable designers to eliminate cables between a television and set-top box or high-definition DVD player using HDAV, the first technology to support both the H.264 format and Ultra-wideband (UWB) based on the WiMedia standard. Wireless HDAV streams high-definition content up to 10 m. The wireless solution combines the Fujitsu H.264-compliant MB86H51 CODEC with Sigma Designs’ SMP8634 Secure Media Processor decoder and UWB Windeo chipset, the only UWB chipset that uses Intelligent Array Radio (IAR) technology. IAR ensures reliability in wireless connections between devices and also delivers through-wall and range extension capabilities. Using the MB86H51 to compress the HD video allows it to travel longer distances than are possible with uncompressed video. The system software for the reference designs was developed by Radiient Technologies.
