PureVu CNW66xx features multi-format decode and video post-processing
Semiconductor company Computex Cavium Networks has announced the PureVu CNW66xx family, a new line of SoC video processors.
Computex Cavium Networks is a provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, and the digital home.
The company said the new processor family leverages its flexible architecture to enable receiver designs that can support a wide range of home networking and wireless video transmission protocols including Cavium’s WiVu, WiFi Alliance 802.11-based wireless display standard (WFD), and DLNA.
Cavium’s new CNW66xx processors are designed for low-cost video streaming wireless display receivers targeting portable consumer devices with built-in wireless display functionality.
"Actiontec is committed to our standards based approach for wireless HD video distribution," stated Actiontec CEO Dean Chang.
"As more and more devices with built-in wireless transmission capabilities enter the market, Cavium’s CNW66xx processor allows Actiontec to expand our product offering, and to complement our high-end multi-room home theater solutions with more aggressively priced and flexible variations for addressing the needs of the entire market."
Some of the other key features of CNW66xx are: ARM CPU core; programmable audio DSP with advanced DMA functionality; display processor with multi-layer alpha compositor; and video post-processor with 3D motion adaptive de-interlacer and poly-phase FIR video scaler.
Cavium will be demonstrating its new PureVu CNW66xx silicon in reference platforms interoperating with a range of popular portable consumer devices including smartphones, tablets and notebook PCs at Computex Taipei 2011.
