Sigma Designs Announces Linux Support for DVD and MPEG Video Streaming


"..Sigma Designs announced today that it will add Linux support to its new REALmagic NetStream 2000 card and EM8400 progressive MPEG-2/DVD decoder chip. Sigma will demonstrate Linux DVD playback at InfoValue Computing's Booth 274-276 during the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo this week at New York's Jacob Javits Center.

Additionally, Sigma and Eagle Wireless International have announced that Eagle has selected Sigma's EM8400 chip for its Webflyer Linux-based Convergence Set-Top Box products. The Eagle Wireless CSTB(TM) featuring REALmagic decoder silicon on the motherboard for DVD and streaming MPEG-2 playback is designed for residential deployment by broadband ISPs. Eagle chose Sigma's REALmagic decoder silicon to help ensure that the Webflyer Linux set-top box meets customers' video quality requirements.

Sigma's NetStream 2000 card, which includes the EM8400 chip, is the first MPEG-2/DVD playback product to support the Linux operating system. NetStream 2000 is specifically designed for flawless-quality MPEG-2 and progressive DVD digital video playback on VGA monitors and TV screens. It is an affordable, plug-and-play solution for client playback of streaming video across Ethernet and ATM networks. NetStream 2000 also features a powerful software toolkit that supports high-performance, interactive digital video applications such as kiosks, video walls, ATM machines, and corporate training.

Sigma's EM8400 is a highly integrated decoder for DVD and MPEG-2 video. Its feature set ensures that it can be incorporated into a wide variety of set-top digital video appliances at a lower cost than competitive parts. Further increasing its popularity is DVD and streaming video software support for a wide range of platforms, including interactive TV software provided by Liberate TV Navigator and Microsoft TV, as well as drivers for operating systems such as Windows® 95/98/NT4.0/2000 and CE, VxWorks, QNX, and Linux. This enables not only standalone DVD player designs but also integrated designs that support web browsing with video in a window, video over ADSL, digital VCRs, interactive television, and more.

Availability :
Samples of the EM8400 are available for immediate delivery, and production quantities are available 30 days ARO. Supporting a wide range of video servers as well as DVD-Video, NetStream 2000 is available for immediate delivery through major resellers and distributors worldwide. The developer release of the Linux driver is expected by February 28, 2000, and end-user availability for most Linux graphical user interfaces (GUIs) is expected by Q2/2000.."
