San Jose, CA–(January 7, 2008)–Silicon Optix, the leader in advanced video processors, announces that Visualedge will use REON HQV to power its new video processing solution. VeBox is an OEM video processing solution that brings that power of HQV processing to the mass market by way of gaming systems, set-top boxes, outboard processors, and projection systems.
