ViXS Releases a New HD Video Processor SoC: XCodeHD(TM) 3390

High Performance Single Chip HD Transcoder/Encoder/Decoder product

TORONTO, Sept. 2 -- ViXS Systems Inc., the leader in highly innovative and advanced networked multimedia solutions, announced today that a new High Performance Transcoder/Encoder/Decoder System on a Chip (SoC) product, the XCodeHD(TM) 3390 is now available for existing and new customers. The XCodeHD(TM) 3390 is an enhanced functioning follow-on IC to the highly successful XCode(R) 3290, the world's most advanced MPEG4 AVC (MPEG4 Part 10/H.264) Transcoder/Encoder/Decoder SoC which is currently being used by numerous consumer electronics (CE), Set Top Box (STB), Personal Computer (PC) and broadcast equipment manufacturers.

The new ViXS XCodeHD(TM) 3390 IC is targeted at applications such as Cable STBs, IPTV STBs, Personal Video recorders (PVRs), Place-shifting devices, Digital Televisions (DTVs), Blu-Ray PVR/Recorders, Home Media Servers and Home Networked Attached Storage (NAS) devices. It also provides improved application processing power over the previous XCode(R) 3290, allowing customers to run more applications and faster. Like the current XCode(R)3290 that is shipping today in multiple high volume applications, the XCodeHD(TM) 3390 has the option for a full decode/full encode transcode or a Smart XCode(TM) mode with the added benefit of dynamic switching between the modes providing the best video transcoding quality and flexibility available in a SoC today. ViXS Systems is currently the only company shipping this level of flexibility to its customers today.
