3DTV Coprocessor for cheap 3DTV
NXP in releasing its new PNX5130 coprocessor. The new chip is called the PNX5130 and will be demonstrated at CES 2010. The coprocessor works with two types of technology including frame interleave and line interleaved.
The frame interleaved mode is targeting the use of active glasses shutting one eye when the other view is displayed and vice-versa (up to an impressive 240Hz or 120Hz for each eye). The line interleved mode will be used in TV sets with a lenticular filter directing every other line to a different polarising filter. The images are then viewed through passive polarized glasses. This mode is supported at 60 Hz and 120Hz.
The high-performance PNX5130 video post-processing platform also enables 3DTV with movie judder compensation. Based on the architecture of the PNX5100 platform, which has been widely recognized for its outstanding support of MEMC (Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation), the PNX5130 features the next generation of NXP’s proprietary MAPP (Motion Accurate Picture Processing) technology, which combines movie judder cancellation, motion sharpness, and vivid color management in a single device.
Availability: Engineering samples of the PNX5130 are available immediately, while the final software release will be available in Q1 2010.
