SuperMac Technology Inc, based in Sunnyvale, California has announced that it has got plans to incorporate the new Texas Instruments Inc MVP chip into future product design. SuperMac Technology will be using the chip in a new accelerator board for CD-ROM content developers using SuperMac’s Cinepak video compression technology. The chip will offer a performance boost for Cinepak, because of its four parallel processors and one RISC master processor. The image-compression techniques of Cinepak enable full-length movies to fit onto a CD-ROM while still retaining true colour and realistic quality much closer to the original video source material. SuperMac Technology plans to ship products containing the MVP chip technology during 1994, although volume shipments will be dependent upon Texas Instruments’ production schedule.
