Freiburg, GermanyDesigned to provide maximum picture and sound quality in 1080p flat-panel TVs, Micronas has started to sample its third-generation VCT-Premium processor.
The VCT-Premium processor also supports expandability to 120-Hz and DTV broadcasting formats such as H.264
The single chip integrates audio, video, Teletext, OSD, and controller-related functionalities, including memory and program ROM, and a dual input port HDMI receiver.
The chip offers state-of-the-art color processing. In addition to standard color space typically used for PAL or NTSC systems, it can accept content with the new extended color space (xvYCC) and expands the color formats to work with Wide Color Gamut panels.
The VCT-Premium eliminates 'mosquito noise' and 'block noise' to the video signal with advanced algorithms that reduce the digital noise effect while maintaining picture sharpness.
