Sigma Designs to Demonstrate New Class of Media Processor Chips for Advanced IPTV Set-tops at IBC 2005

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Sept. 12, 2005— Sigma Designs (Nasdaq: SIGM) announced it will be demonstrating its SMP8634 media processor at the IBC 2005 (International Broadcast Conference) in Amsterdam September 9-13, with Scientific-Atlanta's (NYSE:SFA) advanced IPTV set-top box, product mix to address telco opportunities on a worldwide basis. The demonstration of the new class of system-on-chip (SOC) based set-top box platforms will be shown at the Scientific-Atlanta stand (Stand 1.471).

As a part of an overall thrust to deliver next generation video services on a worldwide basis, the telco industry is preparing to deploy advanced Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) solutions that provide an exciting new user experience.

The platform being demonstrated at IBC, based on Sigma's SMP8634 media processor, should deliver an unprecedented level of performance that includes multiple streams of high-definition video in all major formats, along with content security.

"Sigma has long been a pioneer in the IPTV industry and is thrilled to be working with a world leader such as Scientific-Atlanta," said Ken Lowe, VP of strategic marketing, Sigma Designs. "As the excitement around our SMP8634 continues to grow, more and more companies like Scientific-Atlanta will reap the benefits of solid performance and technological prowess."
