Sigma Designs to Launch New ARM-Based Chipset Family With HEVC at CES

Sigma's SMP8756 Provides Market-Ready Solution for Hybrid IPTV Middleware and Android STB Platforms
MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2014) - CES LAS VEGAS -- Sigma Designs® (NASDAQ: SIGM), a leading provider of System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions for home entertainment, control, connectivity and converging multimedia delivery, is to launch its new High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)-capable SMP8750 family at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, NV (January 7-10, 2014). Combining the HEVC compression standard with a high performance ARM Cortex A9 CPU with an ARM Mali 400 GPU, the SMP8756 will offer a unique combination of performance, user experience and video quality.
Debuting at CES 2014 in Sigma Designs' suite in Las Vegas Hotel, the Sigma SMP8756 has a wealth of features which make it the ideal chip for OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), STB (set top box) manufacturers and service providers eager to deploy new HEVC services and benefit from bandwidth savings and video quality. HEVC is a new compression CODEC poised for deployment world-wide in the coming years. The SMP8750 series SoCs support HEVC's Main-10 profile allowing processing of up to 10 bit color samples accepted as the standard for 4Kx2K, OTT (over the top) and IPTV content. The SMP8750 family will support FHD and 4kx2k resolutions. The new SMP8750 family offers SoCs at multiple cost and performance combinations allowing each SoC to offer optimal performance to price ratio for multiple STB platforms from zappers, PVR capable, Hybrid-broadcast and IPTV STBs.

Mustafa Ozgen, vice president and general manager Home Multimedia for Sigma Designs, said: "Sigma has a heritage of incorporating cutting edge CODECs and with the new 8756 family ushers in Sigma's support for HEVC. We developed our HEVC core to scale from FHD to 4k for the entire family of SoCs. The SMP8756 is specifically designed to bring HEVC into client and multi-room DVR set top boxes at an affordable cost."

The SMP8750 family migrates robust STB SoC components like broadcast TS processing, OTP and security infrastructure paired with an ARM A9 CPU and Mali GPU. The single-core ARM A9 CPU and 3000 DMIPS of application processing along with a Mali GPU combine to provide a dramatic performance profile for new 3D user interfaces, over-the-top and casual gaming applications. Incorporating Sigma's industry-proven technologies such as secure media processing, multi-format Full-HD video decoding, VXP™ display processing, and field-proven AV software core, the SMP8756 is able to provide premium quality video experience. A software SDK is available for either Linux or Android platform development. Future certification of CAS technologies like Verimatrix and Nagravision are planned.

The chipset also demonstrates wide-ranging ecosystem compatibility, leveraging the widely supported ARM processing core, OpenGL ES, HTML-5 and others to ensure that a broad range of existing applications will run. It includes a wide range of hardware and software extensions to support the creation of complete system solutions; including global tuner/demodulator standards, wired and wireless network controllers, DTV middleware stacks and industry-leading IPTV middleware ports, such as Wyplay and OpenTV.

The SMP8756 comes with a full Software Suite, including libraries and services packaged under both Linux and Android development kits for rapid development. It incorporates managed power consumption, developed for both US and European regulatory compliance and is developed to a minimal R-BOM to allow smaller footprint and lower cost implementations.

Frog By Wyplay Solution.[/url]
The Sigma SMP8700 series have a wealth of features that make it the ideal fit for OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), STB manufacturers and service providers.
The SMP875X family is the first to enable HEVC video decoding capability with the Main-10 profile allowing processing of up to 10bit color samples and will be demonstrated at CES.
The SMP8700 series includes SOCs with multiple ARM A9 CPU configurations for 3000 or 6000 DMIPS of application processing.
Similarly, SMP8700 series includes GPU options with multiple performance levels for new 3D user interfaces and over-the-top applications.
The STB vendor thus has flexibility to combine the right pair of CPU and GPU to meet customer requirement at optimum platform BOM.
Incorporating Sigma’s industry-proven expertise in multi-format Full-HD video decoding, VXP™ display processing, and field-proven AV software core,
the SMP8700 family of SOCs is able to provide premium quality video experience.
There are also multiple CAS solutions planned for this family including Verimatrix’s cardless Video Content Authority System (VCAS™).

Popcorn Hour VTEN Media Player Powered by Sigma Designs SMP8757 STB SoC Supports 4K, H.265 Codec

Cloud Media must have noticed the shortcomings of Rockchip SDK and RK3288 processor found in their Open Hour Chameleon box with pseudo 4K video playback and only partial audio pass-through capability, and the company have not given up on more traditional Linux based media players with a proven track record, as they’ve just announced Popcorn Hour VTEN featuring the latest Sigma Designs SMP8757 SoC with 4K video output.
Image
