Anchor Bay Technologies Announces Availability of Chip and Video Processiong Solutions for OEM

Equipment manufacturers can now be Powered by ABT.

Campbell, CA — October 21, 2005 — Anchor Bay Technologies, Inc. (ABT), creator of the award-winning DVDO video processing technologies announced today the official launch of their Powered by ABT brand to the commercial market. Anchor Bay Technologies provides both chip and system level video processing solutions to equipment manufacturers and end customers. ABT is engaged in the sale of its semiconductor technology to OEMs for design into new video products, and also maintains a global distribution and sales network for its system-level product line.

Anchor Bay Technologies Vice President of Marketing, Mr. C. H. Chee stated, “ABT’s Precision Video Scaling technology was first deployed in ABT’s DVDO iScan HD. It has recently been designed into Marantz’s DV9600 DVD player as well as Denon’s flagship DVD player, the DVD-5910. All of our technologies are now available to manufacturers that demand exceptional video scaling performance.”

Anchor Bay Technologies is the original creator of the award winning line of DVDO iScan video processor products and the first single chip video de-interlacer that incorporated 3:2 and 2:2 pull-down. Other trademarked technologies that will be marketed under Powered by ABT include: Precision Video Scaling, RightRate, AutoCUE-C, and Precision AV LipSync. Precision Video Scaling is the first of ABT’s technologies being offered to OEMs. In the coming months new leading edge technologies that support the requirements of today’s high definition displays will also be made available.

Available Powered by ABT Technologies:

ABT’s Precision Video Scaling technology is based on ABT’s proprietary video scaling engine that can independently scale an image horizontally and vertically to achieve an outstanding picture quality for today’s high resolution video displays. The scaling engine is completely flexible, accepting standard definition (480p, 576p) and high definition (720p and 1080i) inputs and outputting any resolution from VGA (640×480) to 1080p (1920×1080) with multiple standard and custom aspect ratios. Since the scaling engine is completely flexible, other image manipulation features are also supported including zoom, pan and border controls.

ABT’s RightRate technology converts the input frame rate to the optimal display frame rate without causing ‘tearing’ in the output frame. ABT’s high performance frame rate conversion also supports converting film sources from 24 frames per second to 48, 60 or 72 frames per second for NTSC format and from 25 frames per second to 50 or 75 frames per second for PAL/SECAM format. The higher frame rates eliminate flicker in high-end displays such as CRT front projectors. In addition, driving displays at 48 or 72 frames per second (NTSC) and 75 frames per second (PAL) often results in smoother motion in panning scenes. ABT’s RightRate technology is extremely flexible, allowing the output frame rate of the video source to be changed to precisely match the frame rate requirement of today’s high resolution displays.

ABT’s AutoCUE-C technology automatically detects and removes chroma artifacts caused by incorrect up-sampling of the chroma (color) signals by MPEG decoders in DVD players and satellite receivers. These artifacts are especially noticeable as horizontal streaks in images with highly saturated colors. When these artifacts are removed, the picture quality of the images is significantly improved.

ABT’s Precision AV LipSync technology automatically delays the audio signal to match the video processing delay in DVDO products. As a result, the AV lip-sync problem that is caused by video processing delay is eliminated. The audio delay can also be further adjusted to correct the AV lip-sync problem that may be already be present in the AV source.

“Anchor Bay Technologies has a history of creating innovative technologies for the home theater market. In 1997, ABT’s design team founded DVDO Inc., and launched a product that revolutionized the home theater video line doubler market. Powered by ABT is the future of the conversion process to HD resolution video for equipment manufacturers. Because of our success with Denon and various other CE manufacturers, we believe it is time to open up ABT’s chips and system level video processing solutions to a wider audience,” concluded Anchor Bay Technologies CEO Doug Fealtman.
