San Jose, CA–(October 3, 2005)–Silicon Optix’s Realta HQV has received the Five-Star DisplayMate Best Video Hardware award, and will be included in their 2005 Best Video Hardware Guide.

“During our extensive testing of five high-end HDTVs we found that the Silicon Optix HQV processors provided major enhancements in picture quality. Their 1080i motion adaptive de-interlacing and scaling is very impressive. In the Jury portion of the tests both novice and expert panelists independently identified picture quality improvements in the HDTVs that were driven by the Silicon Optix processors,” said Dr. Raymond Soneira, President of DisplayMate Technologies.

The Realta video processor DSP chip originates from Teranex’s $60,000 broadcast and postproduction platforms. Teranex’s software algorithms run on Realta’s fully programmable, trillion-operations-per-second video processing engine to deliver a new standard in image quality, a standard Silicon Optix is calling Hollywood Quality Video, or HQV.

The awards are based solely on image and picture quality excellence and are recommended as a comparative standard of excellence for consumers, corporate buyers, reviewers, test labs, and manufacturers alike. DisplayMate is an industry standard used by over 200 publications in 50 countries for testing and evaluating video hardware.
