BenQ and Silicon Optix Partner to Bring HQV Processing to Next-generation Projectors

Las Vegas, NV–(January 04, 2006)– BenQ and Silicon Optix have partnered to develop new lines of ground-breaking home cinema, home entertainment and dual use business projectors that will substantially raise the performance and feature bars for the industry.

“Our goal is to be the world’s dominant supplier of dual-use data and home theater projectors,” said Peter Chen, Vice President and General Manager of BenQ’s Digital Media Business Group. “We searched hard for a partner that has the depth and breadth of technology and capability that can help us to achieve that goal.”

“We were impressed with Silicon Optix because of their landmark HQV technology and their commitment to innovation and image quality. Only Silicon Optix offered a no compromise processor delivering the best image quality for both HD and SD images,” continued Mr. Chen. “By adding HQV processing, we’ll offer stunning visual performance across all lines of our products.”

HQV processing encompasses true 10-bit video processing, full four-field motion-adaptive video de-interlacing for both standard-definition and high-definition signals, pixel-by-pixel temporal-recursive noise reduction, automatic multi-cadence detection, and pixel-based detail enhancement. It also uses the same video processing power–one trillion operations per second– as the $60k Teranex Xantus box.

The BenQ projectors will also take advantage of Silicon Optix’s exclusive advanced real-time warping and scaling engine to scale resolutions for correcting extreme keystone angles in both horizontal and vertical dimensions or for projecting on curved or warped surfaces while maintaining full image integrity.
