Integrated Device Technology a has announced the industry’s first motion-compensated frame rate conversion processors with an integrated resolution-enhancement engine for use in 120Hz and 240Hz televisions and high-definition video projectors. The new IDT VHD1200 and VHD2400 devices feature the IDT HQV MotionSMART technology, which provides smooth motion and full-detail images while minimizing side effects seen with competitive solutions.

 

The new IDT frame-rate conversion processors are also stereo-3D (S3D) capable, providing smooth motion with minimal side effects, which is significant for S3D where varying side effects could be very distracting to the viewer.

The IDT HQV MotionSMART technology includes per-pixel processing, providing the capability to make intelligent localized decisions in the detection and processing of complex video sequences. The IDT solutions also feature cadence detection, which removes judder from sources with cadence, and a wide detection range to eliminate “flickering” when images move horizontally, vertically or diagonally on the screen.

The IDT VHD1200 and VHD 2400 processors lock to a high range of motion to provide full detail with no judder on fast camera pans and smaller, fast-moving objects. The devices also feature the HQV resolution enhancement engine for more-detailed high-definition images.

The new IDT frame rate converters are available for sampling to qualified customers. Price for the VHD1200 is $25 for 1000 units and the VHD2400 is $35 for 1000 units. The devices are available in 479-pin BGA-type packages.
