Silicon Optics to be honored for design, engineering of Realta chip

Silicon Optix's Realta chip is now a CES 2005 Innovations Design and Engineering Honoree.

Silicon Optix's Realta chip with Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) has been selected from more than 800 entries as a CES 2005 Innovations Design and Engineering Honoree.

The chip originates from Teranex's $60,000 broadcast and post-production platforms. The company's software algorithms run on Realta's fully-programmable, trillion-operations-per-second video processing engine to deliver video quality the company calls “Hollywood Quality Video” (HQV).

HQV is a high-quality de-interlacing, pixel-based noise reduction, automatic per pixel film/video cadence detection and detail enhancement system.

The Realta HQV processor allows TVs or DVD players to download new software patches or upgrades, thus future proofing end-users' investments in HQV-enabled products. Separately, Silicon Optix announced that Denon has selected the Realta chip with HQV technology for its new DVD-A1XV DVD player (DVD-5910) in the United States.

Denon will be the first company to bring the Realta chip with HQV technology to consumers.
