LSI ADDS QUALITY OF TEXT & GRAPHICS TO SET-TOP BOX CHIPS

By CBR Staff Writer

Chip maker LSI Logic Corp will add high quality text and graphics and photographic quality image display to its offering to makers of set-top boxes, with the addition of a version of PowerTV Inc’s Eagle multimedia co-processor modified specially for LSI, to be called Falcon. LSI will market Falcon under the LSI Logic brand name, and says it interfaces seamlessly with its own Integra chip set for television set-top boxes. In addition to high quality graphics and photographic quality imaging, the Falcon ASIC application specific integrated circuit will also enable overlaying of graphics with live video, video in a window capability and hardware graphics acceleration optimised for television applications. It also has enhancements and additional memory saving features. LSI says Falcon addresses the problem areas associated with integrating digital video and audio into television-based applications, and it claims it is capable of providing very high quality images and audio on ordinary television sets.
