LSI Logic Corp. has announced two new single-chip multi-format A/V codecs that allow consumers to capture video content from any analog/digital camcorder, VCR, or TV tuner and send it to a PC over a USB 2.0 connection.

The DMN-8100 and DMN-8150 are based on the company's DoMiNo architecture to deliver DV and MPEG codec technology and enable high-quality, full-screen video, coupled with built-in AAC, MP3, and AC3 audio processing.

The DMN-8150 codec supports MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and the low bit-rate MPEG-4 compression standard to address consumer requirements for sharing video over the Internet. The device is targeted for the conversion of analog videotape to MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 compression formats for VCD and DVD archiving.

The DMN-8100 SoC codec offers a higher level of integration by incorporating an IEEE1394 link and DV codec functionality. It is claimed by the company to be the first chip capable of converting standard DV-25 digital video input to MPEG-1, MPEG-2, or MPEG-4 compression files in real time.

The DMN-8100 is priced at $50, while the DMN-8150 is priced at $35 in quantities of 10,000.
