Analog Devices, a provider of data conversion and signal conditioning technology, has announced that it is working with RealNetworks, a creator of digital media services and software, to provide personal media players featuring full D1 broadcast resolution playback of RealVideo and RealAudio media files, the same formats used in RealPlayer.
The combined efficiency of the RealVideo format and the performance of the Blackfin processor deliver a high-quality level of video playback traditionally not found in personal media players.
Martin Schwarz, assistant vice president of format for RealNetworks, said: RealPlayer is the leading media player in the Chinese market and the RealVideo format is the preferred digital media format. We are excited that the Blackfin embedded processor supports high quality and stable decoding of RealVideo and RMVB media at a full D1 broadcast resolution and 16M colors. We are pleased that Aigo has continued to extend its line of PMP devices to support RealVideo and RMVB files by leveraging the Blackfin processor from ADI.
