NXP, the independent semiconductor company founded by Philips, has launched the world?s first video postprocessor with proprietary Motion Accurate Picture Processing technology, enabling TV manufacturers to improve high-definition (HD) motion picture on LCD TVs.
This technology on NXP?s new PNX5100 video postprocessor combines movie judder cancellation (MJC), motion sharpness and vivid color management to remove the visible halo and blur in fast moving scenes delivering an enhanced viewing experience for enjoying sports and action movies.
NXP?s Motion Accurate Picture Processing technology uses an up-conversion technique in conjunction with three-frame HD Movie Judder Cancellation and full motion-compensated up-conversion to 1920x1080p @ 120Hz. The Automatic Picture Control (APC) feature dynamically adjusts the processing parameters used to obtain optimal improvement on every output frame.
"Blurred pictures on large HDTV sets has been a chronic irritation for consumers, and set manufacturers have not yet been able to find an effective solution," said Shyam Nagrani, Principal Analyst, Display Electronics, iSuppli Corporation.
The Nexperia PNX5100 integrated media processor cores provide a powerful video processing platform for motion estimation and up-conversion. The performance is extended with hardware pre- and post-video processing functions a universal input processor (UIP) and video composition pipe (CPIPE). It includes a dual-channel LVDS receiver and two dual-channel LVDS transmitters. The postprocessor also provides PiP (Picture-in-Picture) and OSD graphics insertion capabilities. The PNX5100 supports high-end flat panel screen resolutions and refresh rates with formats including 1366?768 @ 120Hz and 1920?1080 @ 120Hz.
NXP?s Nexperia PNX5100 will be demonstrated at its booth (Hall 1.1, Booth 213) at IFA 2007 in Berlin, Germany from August 31 ? September 05.
Nexperia PNX5100 will be available for mass production in Q1 2008.
