San Jose, CA–(Jan. 5, 2007)–Silicon Optix, the leader in programmable video processors, announced today that Proview, one of the world’s top five producers of displays, will introduce a new family of premium 1080p LCD HDTVs based on Reon-VX HQV processing. The first Proview display with HQV processing will be available in the first quarter of 2007.
“Silicon Optix is the undisputed leader in high-end video processing. We’re very excited about our new family of premium displays that will feature the HQV processor and deliver incredible image quality for both high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD),” stated Rowell Yang, Chairman and CEO of Proview.
HQV’s true 1080i-to-1080p HD deinterlacing delivers the sharpest, most detailed HD images possible by employing per-pixel motion-adaptive algorithms and a sophisticated multidirectional diagonal filter that ensures video free of jaggies. The powerful HQV processing engine also provides per-pixel motion-adaptive noise reduction, detail enhancement, and advanced scaling to deliver premium-quality upconversion of SD material.
“We’re excited to be working with Proview because they recognize the importance of high-quality video processing on a large, high-resolution LCD display,” said Ney Christensen, VP of Sales, Silicon Optix. “I’m sure this family of LCD displays will be a tremendous success for Proview, an emerging leader in the exploding HDTV marketplace.”
