Digital ICs/DSP: Media Processor Trims System Cost For Flexible Video Appliances

Zeroing in on multiformat consumer video applications, the BSP-15-D1 video and system processor is claimed to deliver the most video performance at its price point, which is $19 in volume. It delivers a video-over-IP solution based on the Windows Media 9 series at main profile. It can deliver D1 (720 by 480) resolution decoding at 30 frames/s for most popular media formats. Fully C/C++ programmable, it supports playback in DivX, RealVideo9, H.264, and VP4/5/6 formats. For digital video-recorder applications, the chip's low-bit-rate compression algorithms extend recording time to two hours on a CD-ROM or over 13 hours on a DVD. Software tools developed for previous BSP-15 family members can be used to develop applications for the D1. Chips are immediately available.
