Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is collaborating with GoVideo, a consumer electronics pioneer, to integrate the AMD Alchemy Au1200 processor in the latter's next line of portable video players (PVP).

The AMD Alchemy Au1200 processor is anticipated to enable GoVideo to deliver a PVP that provides consumers a simplified user experience and enhanced entertainment value. The Au1200 processor offers PVPs the ability to connect directly to digital video recorders (DVR) and transfer video content without the need to transcode the file through a personal computer, thus greatly reducing the time it takes to download and playback fresh video entertainment on a portable device. Once content is on the PVP, the Au1200 processor provides a DVD-quality display that can be scaled directly to larger screens without compromising image quality. The Au1200 processor is designed to support industry-standard media formats, including MPEG2, MPEG4, WMV9, H.263 and DivX.

GoVideo PVPs based on the AMD Alchemy Au1200 processor are scheduled for availability in the second quarter of 2005. GoVideo will announce more details on the product's pricing, performance and features prior to its availability.
