Texas Instruments this week said it’s releasing a new processor that will provide up to 10 times the typical performance levels for HD-centric video processing and multichannel applications, to allow seamless movement of video information across an array of content providers.

Dallas-based TI said the processor (DaVinci TMS320DM6467) was made possible by tapping into its own proprietary DaVinci Technology.

The single-chip processor, TI said, represents the industry’s first single-chip, multiformat, real-time HD transcoding scheme for both consumer and commercial end-user products. It’s designed to align with an array of digital configurations—including media gateways, multipoint control units, media adaptors, DVR video security, and IP set-top boxes.
