Fujitsu has expanded its range of highly integrated video processing devices with the launch of the MB86H51.
The device supports the H.264 format and can compress and decompress full high-definition video at 1,920 dots x 1,080 lines in real time using the H.264 format.
Fujitsu claims that the MB86H51 is the industry's first single-chip device for full HD H.264 high profile version 4.0 video processing to incorporate embedded memory.
The chipset also compresses and decompresses audio in real time by utilising formats such as the MPEG-1 Audio Layer.
The device is designed to provide high image quality recording, playback and transmission of full HD video for consumer or industrial applications, such as digital video cameras, hard disk digital video recorders and home network devices.
Davy Yoshida, director of business development at Fujitsu Microelectronics
America, said: "Digital AV equipment is moving to HD formats, and we anticipate
significant demand for products based on the highest definition specification
known as full HD."
The chipset uses high-compression technology from Fujitsu Laboratories to reduce the processing burden.
A proprietary algorithm automatically applies less compression to areas in the image where compression artefacts are most noticeable to human vision, such as human faces or slow-moving objects, with increased compression to other areas.
The MB86H51 package will begin sampling in July with an expected price of $295, Fujitsu said.
New light-guiding nanoscale device can control and monitor a nanoparticle trapped in a laser beam with high sensitivity
Optical traps are scientific instruments in which a focused laser beam is used to exert an attractive or repulsive force on a microscopic object to hold it in place
Scientists estimate that the exoplanet has already lost up to 35 per cent of its mass over its lifetime
The observations were made using the Atacama Array in the Chilean desert
J1043+2408 was observed for more than 10 years, and its radio light curve exhibited a periodic signal repeating in about 563 days
