3DLABS showcases DMScaler™ for enhanced viewing of video and photos on 1080p displays

Programmable scaler extends existing capabilities of DMS-02 media processor beyond H.264 720p playback

Taipei, Taiwan - May 29, 2007: 3DLABS Inc., Ltd., a fabless semiconductor company, will be showcasing its DMS-02 processor's unique ability to decode and display high-resolution video and photos on high definition 1080p TVs to customers and prospects attending the annual Computex consumer electronics trade show, June 5-9 2007.

The new DMScaler (DMS Scaler) technology extends the capabilities of the current DMS-02 media processing libraries to enable consumers to view their standard D1 resolution video on the growing number of high definition TVs at their native 1080p resolution. The DMScaler enhancements use the power of the DMS-02's software programmable media processing array to apply complex, high-quality filters to remove the visual artifacts normally seen when upscaling or downscaling video and images. It also removes the need for dedicated scaling hardware.

Showcase Highlights

  • Display and manipulate photos larger than 10Mpixel and output at 1080p resolution
  • View standard definition (D1) video content, upscale and output to 1080p TV screens
  • Playback high definition H.264 video at 720p at 24 fps
  • Downscale and playback HD and standard definition video on small screens without transcoding
  • High-end 3D Navigation with accelerated OpenGL ES map render

3DLABS will be showcasing its products and technology in a private suite at the Agora Garden Hotel on Sung-Kao Road, close to the Taipei World Trade Center.
