WEITEK LICENSES SUPERMAK’s CINEPAK FOR VIDEO CHIP

By CBR Staff Writer

Weitek Corp of Sunnyvale, California has licensed SuperMac Technology Inc’s Cinepak advanced video compression technology for use in its new Video Power digital video enhancement chip, which is designed to improve the performance and image quality of Cinepak’s video playback for Microsoft Corp Video for Windows applications. This enables digital video applications to run full screen at 30 frames per second at resolutions up to 1,280 by 1,024. Cinepak is a video compression- decompression scheme enabling each frame to use less storage space than usual so that a full-length movie can fit on a CD-ROM, while retaining colour and quality closer to the original video source material.
