Featuring InstaPort, Mobile High-Definition Link and ChromaViv Technologies
These new input processors offer four HDMI 1.3 technology enabled ports with Deep Color and x.v.color support, four ports of 170 MHz 36-bit analog input and integrated CVBS and Y/C switching.
The following features are supported: -- 4 HDMI 1.3 technology ports - Deep Color, x.v.color support -- MHL technology and InstaPort technology support -- 4 HD analog video ports - 170MHz (UXGA, 1080p) - 36-bit color - ChromaViv technology color calibration -- Multiport CVBS/YC switch -- Power Island design - Low standby power (30mW) -- Integrated EDID (4) and CEC
"Input processors provide a high-integration, subsystem-level solution that delivers not only superior video quality but also the latest in connectivity innovation," said Lew Paceley, DTV marketing director, Silicon Image. "DTV and AVR makers are facing increasing competition on a worldwide basis. Input processors can provide a highly differentiated, fast-time-to- market solution that is cost-effective and easily integrates the latest in consumer features."
The SiI9251 and SiI9261 input processors incorporate InstaPort technology, a new innovation that enables high speed switching between HDMI input ports by adding intelligence to the inputs. By minimizing switching lag between HDMI technology enabled source devices, consumers can more quickly access and enjoy the content found on the ever increasing number of new mobile and broadband entertainment devices connected to the DTV.
To better support the enjoyment of high definition mobile content via the DTV, the SiI9251 and SiI9261 integrate support for Silicon Image's MHL technology. MHL technology equipped mobile devices such as mobile phones, digital cameras and media players can be easily connected to DTVs and AVRs incorporating the SiI9251/SiI9261 input processors to allow consumers to enjoy and share their mobile content on the big screen.
To complete the solution, Silicon Image is also introducing its ChromaViv 36-bit analog color technology. This advanced color calibration solution, found in the SiI9251/SiI9261 input processors, ensures accurate HD analog color.
