sis217h-hdtv-processorSilicon Integrated Systems Corp.(SiS), today unveiled a new high integrated HDTV processor, SiS217H, eyeing for the new HiHD digital broadcasting system in Taiwan geography.

The SiS217H HDTV processor integrates a 226MHz Universal Video Decoding Engine (UVDE) capable of parsing the H.264/AVC HP@L3.0/3.2/4.1 complaint streams, as well as the MPEG2 MP@ML/HL streams. The decoded video streams are then piped by the integrated 6th generation Digital Native Video Engine (DNVE) guaranteeing the picturesque display. To support the audio counter-part of these standards, the SiS217H integrates a Universal Audio Decoding Engine (UADE) capable of parsing the HE-AAC-Stereo (level 2), MPEG L1/L2, AAC-LC, and, and AC3 complaint streams. Various enhanced sound effects are supported, such as 5-band equalizer, Virtual Surround, TruSurroundXT, and TruVolume technologies.

The SiS217H HDTV processor integrates the 3D Comb filter based NTSC decoder, the Multi-standard ATV sound decoder, the Transport Stream DeMux , the UVDE, the UADE, the embedded audio processor with 24 bit Audio codec, the 170MHz Triple ADC, the HDMI 1.3 compliant receiver with CEC capability, and the 6th generation DNVE technology. Two USB 2.0 ports are integrated for photo-viewing the JPEG file, or playing MP3 program stream from thumb-drive or HDD storage devices, with the aide of the built-in H/W accelerated JPEG viewer, & MP3 player, or for downloading the video/audio streams from the PC through the external USB wireless or Ethernet dangle device, respectively. Specifically, the connectivity extension through the two USB 2.0 ports, together with the integrated powerful Dual-RISC processors streamlines the versatile applications such as the DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) home-networking media- shared & media-played scenario, or the Pause Live-TV or PVR recording and playing scenario.

It has been around one year since Public Television Service has launched the trail-run of HiHD terrestrial broadcasting in Channel 30 mainly on the programs of drama, documentary, music & infotainment, sports, and art, in the twin-mega cities Taipei, and Kaohsiung. More and more cites in the west coast of the Island-nation will also map into the HiHD-ready broadcasting range along with the subsequent implementation phases of the emergent broadcast stations. To address the growing needs of the HiHD HDTV platforms in the island, SiS has been very focusing on launching a forged HiHD-Ready solution, SiS217H, with various intensive field tests, and customization to make a contribution in the new arena of the Taiwan HiHD era.

Engineer sample is available now for designing and validating and expected to be mass-produced by July, 2009.
