IDT Launches 3-D Capable Frame Rate Conversion Processors
Industry’s First FRC Processors with Integrated Resolution-Enhancement Engine Provide Smooth Motion with Minimal Side Effects for 120Hz and 240Hz High-Definition Displays
SAN JOSE, Calif., July 22, 2010 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), a leading provider of essential mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enrich the digital media experience, today announced the industry’s first motion-compensated frame rate conversion processors with an integrated resolution-enhancement engine for use in 120Hz and 240Hz televisions and high-definition video projectors. The new IDT VHD1200 and VHD2400 devices feature the industry-leading IDT HQV® MotionSMART™ technology, which provides smooth motion and full-detail images while minimizing side effects seen with competitive solutions.
The new IDT frame-rate conversion processors are also 3-D capable, providing smooth motion with minimal side effects, which is significant for 3-D where varying side effects could be very distracting to the viewer.
“IDT continues to provide its customers with innovative video solutions. These new frame rate converters provide smooth motion and crisp, clear images for today’s HD and 3-D displays,” said Ji Park, vice president and general manager of the Video and Display Operation at IDT. “The VHD1200 and VHD2400 follow in the footsteps of our other innovative video processing solutions, providing our customers devices that deliver the best picture quality.”
The IDT HQV MotionSMART technology includes per-pixel processing, providing the capability to make intelligent localized decisions in the detection and processing of complex video sequences. The IDT solutions also feature cadence detection, which removes judder from sources with cadence, and a wide detection range to eliminate “flickering” when images move horizontally, vertically or diagonally on the screen.
The IDT VHD1200 and VHD 2400 processors lock to a high range of motion to provide full detail with no judder on fast camera pans and smaller, fast-moving objects. The devices also feature the industry-leading HQV Resolution Enhancement engine for more-detailed high-definition images.
Pricing and Availability
The new IDT frame rate converters are available for sampling to qualified customers. Price for the VHD1200 is $25.00 for 1,000 units and the VHD2400 is $35.00 for 1,000 units. The devices are available in 479-pin BGA-type packages. For more information, visit http://www.IDT.com/go/HQVMotionSMART.
