SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Image (NASDAQ:SIMG), a leading provider of multimedia connectivity
solutions and services, today announced the industry’s first analog-to-MHL®/HDMI®
converter integrated circuits (ICs) that provide OEMs with
cost-optimized adapter solutions for connecting analog sources to HDMI
or MHL-enabled DTVs. With these new adapters, consumers can enjoy
content from legacy VCRs, DVD players, camcorders, set-top-boxes, and
console games that have analog outputs on the latest HDMI or MHL-enabled
displays - including 4K UHD TVs. In addition, these new ICs - when
integrated into DTVs and displays - allow manufacturers to remove
expensive and bulky legacy analog inputs on the TV, saving board space
and overall cost.
“HDMI and MHL have become the de-facto connectivity standards for
connecting CE and mobile devices, with over three-and-a-half billion
enabled products combined on the market,” said C.H. Chee, senior
director of marketing at Silicon Image, Inc. “Being able to connect
legacy analog devices to late model DTVs brings the digital experience
to a whole new audience. Our converter ICs delivered with complete
reference designs make it easy for OEMs to create small form factor
analog-to-MHL or analog-to-HDMI adapters.”
IC is designed to accept analog component, composite or VGA input and
convert it to either HDMI or MHL, allowing for a variety of adapters to
be implemented. An analog-to-MHL adapter has the additional benefit of
being powered by the TV’s MHL port, eliminating the need for an external
IC is designed for easy integration into video switching devices such as
A/V receivers, video processors and video switchers that need to support
a wide array of video interfaces for home theater system.
Both converter ICs include VRS®
ClearView™ technology, which features edge smoothing and
picture enhancement, resulting in visibly improved picture quality.
