Magnum Semiconductor Offers Full 3D 1080p50/60

Magnum Semiconductor, the leader in professional-grade compression processors, is demonstrating AVC coding of 1080p50/60 content at traditional 1080i50/60 bit rates for practical 3D stereoscopic video applications at the IBC 2009 show in Amsterdam. Magnum offers its flexible powerful multi-core media-processor DXTPro architecture for implementations of 3D solutions in the broadcast infrastructure and at home.

“With support for 1080p50/60 encoding and decoding at traditional 1080i bit rates, Magnum enables 3D stereoscopic video application developers and platform OEMs to deliver cost-effective 3D video solutions for the complete broadcast video chain,” said Gal Garniek, VP Marketing and Sales at Magnum Semiconductor.

TDVision's patented 2D+Delta TDVCodec algorithms exploit redundancy between left and right eye video frames for bit rate reduction, while maintaining full resolution and backward compatibility with all existing 2D displays in 2D HD, as well as forward compatibility with all existing and future 3D-ready displays and methods. Magnum’s powerful DXTPro multimedia processor opens the way to realizing real-time stereoscopic 2D+Delta systems for the broadcast and video production industry”, said Ethan Schur, Chief Marketing Officer at TDVision.
