XCEIVE’S TV TUNER FIRST TO RECEIVE ISF CERTIFICATION
Designation illustrates Xceive’s commitment to offering
highest performing products in the industry
Santa Clara, Calif. — Feb. 06, 2006 — Xceive Corporation, developer of the world’s first fully integrated multi-standard RF-to-baseband transceiver ICs for TVs, PC TVs, set-top boxes and mobile phones, has received Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) Research Labs certification for the XC3028. This certification recognizes top performance and superior quality for high-end consumer products.
In cooperation with Microsoft, ISF is responsible for certifying hardware for Windows XP Media Center Edition. Created in response to customer and partner feedback, the program educates consumers and partners about related components and peripherals that deliver the best experience with a PC running Windows XP Media Center Edition. XC3028 is the first tuner, silicon or can, to have its performance excellence validated by the ISF Research Labs.
“Until now, we had not tested a TV tuner that met the standards for ISF certification,” said Joel Silver, ISF founder. “Xceive’s innovative silicon tuner provides the high-quality results that customers demand.”
Based on patented tunable wideband active RF filtering technology, the XC3028 tuner supports all digital and analog TV formats transmitted worldwide. By loading different firmware, Xceive can provide TV anywhere, eliminating the need to change components.
“As sales of PCs running Windows XP Media Center Edition continue to grow, many of our customers are asking for high-quality TV components that offer an optimal Media Center experience,” said Chris Matichuk, program manager of the eHome TV Team at Microsoft Corp. “We are pleased that Xceive’s silicon TV tuner received ISF certification, and believe it will complement and extend the investments our customers have made in their home entertainment systems.”
“ISF’s comprehensive testing identifies high performance products,” said Alvin Wong, vice president of marketing for Xceive. “Receiving this certification signifies Xceive’s tuner to be among the best in the industry.”
