New Tecnoroll Products Leverage TranSwitch’s HDplay Single-Chip HDMI/DisplayPort Transceivers to Reduce Time-to-Market and Provide Versatile Connectivity
SHELTON, CT- TranSwitch Corporation (NASDAQ: TXCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions in the rapidly growing consumer electronics and telecommunications markets, today announced that the Company’s HDplay™ transceiver has been selected by Tecnoroll for several video encoder solutions. Tecnoroll is a leading designer of video compression engines used in video encoders and targeted for a variety of applications, including broadcasting, surveillance, hospitality, and multi-room residential. These video encoder solutions include complete modules embedded in systems sold by major OEMs.
“Tecnoroll continues to set the standard for video encoder products for a variety of markets and applications,” said Lorenzo Bolla, president at Tecnoroll. TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers provide a level of functionality and connectivity options that are very difficult to achieve through alternative solutions or with a discrete design without sacrificing performance, cost, or size. This level of performance and versatility complements the overall feature set of our video encoder and compression engines helping us differentiate our products and address growing trends across a variety of markets.”
Video encoder modules allow HD video to be compressed into the standard H.264 digital format and transmitted via twisted pair or optical cable. Using this H.264 compression engine, multiple HD video streams can be reliably transmitted, using a single channel, over long distances. These video encoder modules are now increasingly supporting both HDMI and DisplayPort connectivity to allow users to connect a wide array of source devices. According to a report by TechNavio, the HDMI®-enabled device shipments are forecasted to increase at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.7% from 2012 to 2016, while DisplayPort™-enabled device shipments are expected to grow at a CAGR of 31.6% during the same time period.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by Tecnoroll for several video encoder modules,” said Tim Blanke, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at TranSwitch. “TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers provide Tecnoroll with a compact single-chip solution that reduces design complexity to speed time-to-market while enabling source device flexibility with HDMI and DisplayPort connectivity. Working with Tecnoroll provides an additional channel for adoption of our HDplay solutions into a variety of end markets and OEMs through the incorporation of our products as the video connectivity front-end for their video encoder modules.”
TranSwitch’s HDplay transceivers use the Company’s patented HDP™ technology to provide the industry’s only solution that offers both HDMI and DisplayPort functionality on a single integrated circuit.
