Trident Technologies Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Trident Microsystems Inc., has disclosed that Philips Consumer Electronics is using Trident's DPTV SVP to power new digital CRT TVs for China, Asia-Pacific, and North and South America. The new models are now shipping under the Philips brand.

"The companies have worked very closely in the past year to create a product family that meets Philips' stringent video quality requirements while addressing the sensitive cost structure of the digital CRT market," said Dr. J.H. Chang, president of Trident Technologies.

Trident's DPTV SVP video processor features technology including an advanced 3-D digital comb color decoder, pixel-perfect motion adaptive de-interlacing, vertical and horizontal sharpness enhancement, object-based intelligent digital noise reduction, dynamic average picture level (APL) feedback to enhance video dynamic range, and the DETI engine to provide vivid colors.

The DPTV SVP integrates an advanced 4G 3-D/2-D digital comb video decoder for NTSC, PAL, and SECAM formats. Based on Trident's patented proprietary unified memory architecture, DPTV SVP's digital comb video decoder does not require an extra frame buffer for performing 3D comb filtering. With film-mode recovery, DPTV SVP correctly detects the frame rates of incoming video sources, and then dynamically restores the video source to the original film mode sequences for playback. The film-mode recovery of DPTV SVP eliminates the artifacts found in a typical interlaced signal to progressive conversion process.
