HSINCHU, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Taifatech Inc., a provider of system-on-a chip (SoC) solutions for the Digital Home, today announced the launch of a low cost full HD solution for connecting PC and other video devices to high definition televisions through standard networks.
High video quality, low latency and cost-effective, the versatile solution delivers full HD resolution (1980x1080) video and audio through standard networks such as Ethernet, WiFi or PowerLine, thus enabling consumers full access to their PCs through their high definition televisions. Consumers can watch all Internet videos and rented movies on their HDTVs.
Compared to other Wireless Display (WiDi) products, Taifatech’s solution provides improved video performance and two way communication between the PC and the TV. The solution works with CPUs and GPUs from different vendors thus provides more flexibility for OEM, PC and Notebook makers.
“The improved video performance allows applications that require quick responses such as gaming to be done in front of the TV. Consumers can also connect input devices such as game controller, IR controller, microphone or keyboard/mouse to the TV adapter to interact with applications running on the PC,” said Brian Chiang, Taifatech’s Chairman. “The added input capability would enable additional applications such as VoIP teleconferencing, social networking and instant messaging to be done in front of the TV while watching Internet-streamed video.”
In addition to supporting software capturing running on the PC, the method used in WiDi, Taifatech’s solution also provides hardware capture to off-load the capturing task from the PC or to connect other HD devices to the TV via WiFi. Products based on the PC2HDTV solution will soon be available from major PC makers and OEMs.
At the heart of the solution is Taifatech’s TF600 and TF630 single chip HD receiving and streaming SoCs that support high definition video processing. Network connectivity is provided via an integrated Ethernet media access controller (MAC).
TF600 and TF630 also can be used in other applications such as IP based Digital Signage, Network KVM and HD surveillance systems.
Availability and Pricing
The TF600 and TF630 HD Streaming and Receiving Controllers are in mass production and are available immediately. Pricing is available upon request.
