LSI Logic announced that the second-generation LSI Logic DiMeNsion DVD recorder system processors (DMN-8602 and DMN-8652) received DivX certification from DivXNetworks, Inc.technology.
This marks the first single-chip DVD recorder solutions to pass the certification requirements needed to gain DivX Home Theater Certification status.
LSI Logic's line of DiMeNsion DVD recorder processors consists of the industry's first single-chip DVD recorder solutions. The DiMeNsion processors include features such as LSI Logic's Direct Digital Dub technology that simplifies the transfer of personal digital content from a camcorder to DVD over FireWire, with one-touch control via a single remote.
Additional advantages include LSI Logic's proprietary pre- and post-processing technologies, which provide progressive scan output, and noise handling on analog inputs. The level of integration on a single chip reduces design complexity and provides system designers with savings on the overall bill of materials (BOM). In addition, LSI Logic offers manufacturing kits (MKs) that include everything needed for manufacturing-ready solutions to accelerate time-to-market and reduce BOM costs.
DivX video technology includes a complete Digital Rights Management (DRM) system, enabling new business models such as video-on-demand for content providers, consumer electronics companies and retailers. The DivX Certified consumer electronics products have the capability to play rented and purchased DivX video content.
