LSI Logic Corp. announced its DoMiNo 8633 (DMN-8633) and 8683 (DMN-8683) ATSC-compliant HDTV DVD recorder system processors.

Based on the LSI DoMiNo architecture, DMN-8633 and DMN-8683 are highly-integrated single-chip processors capable of simultaneously decoding and displaying HDTV content, while recording content onto DVD. By performing this capability in a single device, the company claims that the new processors maintain the highest possible video quality while enabling the lowest-cost ATSC-compatible HDTV DVD recorder solution.

Additionally, the DMN-8633 and DMN-8683 HDTV DVD recorder processors are able to decode both digital SD and HD ATSC signals, and record to HDD or DVD while maintaining the highest possible video quality.

The new processors both decode and display full HD video via HDMI. By integrating and eliminating the separate HD decoder and additional memory components, system costs are reduced by as much as $15, said LSI.

Both processors support multiple audio and video encoding and decoding formats, as well industry-leading DVD features such as DVFX video pre- and post-processing technologies; Direct Digital Dub technology; YesDVD intelligent software solution; and fully integrated support for USB digital cameras and Flash Cards. Both maintain software compatibility with previous generations of LSI DoMiNo processors to preserve software investment and are part of LSI's third-generation, single-chip DVD recorder system processor family designed to reduce system cost, design complexity and time-to-market.

Pricing is $20 for the DMN-8633 and $25 for the DMN-8683 in high volumes.
