Magnum Semiconductor Launches Entry Level Redistribution Encoder Reference Design for Multi-Dwelling-Units

MILPITAS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Sep 09, 2009 -- Magnum Semiconductor, the leader in professional-grade compression processors, will be launching its first manufacturable reference design to help speed time-to-revenue for its customers, at the IBC 2009 show in Amsterdam. Code-named Llama, this cost-effective HD/SD re-distribution encoder reference design targets the multi-dwelling-unit (MDU) market in high-density population geographies. Based on Magnum's DXT processors, this reference design achieves a perfect balance between high video quality, high channel density and cost.

The DXT processors achieve this feat through the use of Magnum's powerful and proprietary scalable multi-media architecture, which delivers uncompromising video quality, highest channel-density and lowest bit rates. The programmable architecture supports HD and SD resolutions, multiple encoding standards, such as H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 (AVC), MPEG-2 and VC-1, as well as multiple functions, such as encoding, transcoding and decoding.

"The DXT-based Llama reference design combines Magnum's silicon and systems expertise into a fully functional reference design which eliminates the design effort around the audio-video portion, freeing up development resources to focus instead on differentiation, at the codec and system-level, thus significantly cutting time-to-market in an increasingly more competitive market place," said Kishan Jainandunsing, Marketing Director, Broadcast Products at Magnum Semiconductor.

Pricing & Availability

The Llama manufacturable reference design is currently shipping to select customers. Current support includes MPEG-2 HD and SD encoding. Support for H.264 HD, SD and low-resolutions for broadcast-to-mobile is planned later in the year. Contact Magnum Semiconductor for pricing.
