Zoran, Thomson team on DTV processor
Zoran and the Thomson Tuner Group, part of Thomson’s Silicon Solutions unit, have jointly developed a digital-to-analog A-74 and ATSC-compliant DTV processor reference design. The system is powered by Zoran’s SupraHD 640 digital television processor and Thomson’s ATSC tuner.
The design allows CRT manufacturers to integrate, decode, and display digital television feeds, compliant with the A-74 standard set by the ATSC committee, directly into an analog television chassis.
Due to the level of integration of the components and their price points, the reference design can also be used by set-top box manufacturers to quickly build converter boxes that enable existing analog television sets to receive digital terrestrial broadcast stations.
