ViXS Launches New HD AVC SOC ViXS Systems Inc. has announced an MPEG4 AVC (MPEG4 Part 10/H.264) encoder/decoder system-on-a-chip (SOC) named XCode 3290. ViXS' current XCode 2100 Series is in included in consumer electronics (CE) and PC products. Set-top and CE manufacturers will now have the ability to build AVC home video products which are cost effective but still provide the sizzle factor required in these highly competitive markets.
The XCode 3290 will be integrated into home video products such as High Definition (HD) STBs, PVRs, DTVs, Blu-Ray/HD DVD recorders, Media Servers and Network Attached Storage (NAS) products. The XCode 3290's powerful multi-core processors allow for multiple and/or advanced applications such as PVR, DLNA and Networking without the aid of an external CPU.

The XCodeTM 3290's Dual HD Transcoding, encoding and dense peripheral integration make it a shoe-in for CE manufacturers building next generation home video products that have storage, networking and content protection needs.

"XCode 3290, with its powerful Video Processor Unit (VPU), will pave the way for OEMs to build a new class of products that will give consumers unprecedented use case scenarios for managing their multimedia content," said Sally Daub, President and CEO of ViXS Systems. "XCode 3290 will be a must have component for CE and PC manufacturers looking to make a serious dent in their respective markets."
