LG Electronics has designed Genesis Microchip Inc. integrated FLI8532 (Cortez) flat-panel TV controller into multiple LCD TV platforms to be distributed worldwide.

In Europe and Asia, LG Electronics is leveraging the new video controller in LCD TVs from 26-inches, 32-inches, 37-inches to 42-inches. In Latin America, the FLI8532 is designed into both the 37-inch and 42-inch LCD TV models. LG's new LCD TV platforms display the Faroudja DCDi Cinema brand on their faceplates to denote the inclusion of Genesis Microchip's latest suite of advanced video processing technologies. Certain models leverage the combination of the FLI8532 with Genesis' other recently introduced video controller, the FLI8125 or Hudson, to offer integrated Picture-in-Picture (PIP) functionality.

The FLI8532 and FLI8125 were designed to provide a dual channel solution for PIP applications. The FLI8532 is a single-chip TV solution for flat-panel TVs. It also features proprietary technologies to improve the performance of LCDs for TV applications including LCD Overdrive technology to reduce motion smearing artifacts and an Active Color Management system to improve the dynamic color range. An embedded microcontroller and versatile On-Screen-Display (OSD) facilitate rapid product design of a global TV chassis.

The FLI8125 is a cost-effective mixed-signal controller for TV and digital video applications and supports HD formats including 720p and 1080i. It incorporates a suite of technologies promoted under the Faroudja DCDi Edge brand, including Faroudja's proprietary memory-less DCDi to eliminate jagged edges in video, TrueLife video enhancement and Active Color Management technologies. The controller also features a multi-standard 2-D video decoder capable of accepting NTSC, PAL or SECAM and all sub-formats. The high-speed Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) accepts both analog RGB and YPrPb inputs. An integrated VBI Slicer supports Closed Captioning (CC) and Teletext applications, and the built-in microprocessor enables full system control without external devices.
