Silicon Image, the video system-on-chip (SOC) company is producing HDMI transmitters, HDMI receivers, HDMI video switches, HDMI port processors, and PHYs are designed to enable the secure distribution of high-performance digital video and audio connections in PC and consumer electronics (CE) devices. These products play critical role in the transition to HDTV by bridging the content delivery gap between content providers and consumers.

Silicon Image HDMI Port Processor combines HDMI transmitter and receiver functions with a broad range of active processing capabilities, adding intelligent connectivity to CE devices in a modular, scalable architecture.

Silicon Image’s HDMI receivers enable the display of digital content on home theater products. HDMI transmitters enable the delivery of rich digital audio and video content for CE applications. HDMI Switches deliver a cost-effective method for DTV manufacturers to include multiple HDMI input ports, which allow consumers to connect a variety HDMI-enabled sources to their DTVs.

Also, Silicon Image manufactures DVI-compliant transmitters and receivers that support the full DVI bandwidth, making them well-suited for LCD monitors and TVs, microdisplay, home theater, and projectors.

3D HDMI Video IP Cores and SOC Camera Processors

Silicon Image designed 3D & HD video encoder and decoder SOC IP core, supports H.264, MPEG-1/2 and VC-1 video standards including H.264 MVC (Multiview Video Coding) and JPEG standards for still picture applications. Silicon Image Video IP Cores are designed as system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions for DVD and STB/DTV markets at the lowest possible silicon costs. Its interfaces are optimized for easy integration using the standard on-chip bus approach. This dramatically reduces the integration effort and enables fast time-to-market developments.

Silicon Image Camera Processor SOC IP core, a low-power video and still picture input units designed for SoCs, providing image capture capability for mobile phones, digital still cameras (DSCs), camcorders, tablet PCs, Laptops and netbooks with integrated cameras. The cores are available for 2D and for 3D applications.
