Zoran Corp. announced its ninth generation family of Vaddis 9 DVD multimedia processors, which reduces system cost by lowering system component count while also reducing system power consumption. The company is also demonstrating first system platforms at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which will run until Sunday (Jan. 8) in Las Vegas.

The Vaddis 9 family is a fully digital end-to-end solution for DVD players, addressing a wide range of applications from standalone to portable players. These processors also offer enhanced playability for scratched disks.

"Zoran's Vaddis 9 product family optimizes DVD player design for the full range of DVD players, from DVD receivers and DVD-VCR combo players to portable players, and automobile entertainment systems," said Jinxiang (Gene) Liu, VP and GM at Zoran's DVD division.

The Vaddis 9 processor supports DivX Home Theater and Ultra DVD formats. Additional features supported include JPEG viewing with Kodak PictureCD, playback of Microsoft WMA and compressed audio formats. The new processor family also supports Single Pixel Processing progressive scan technology, via component video output.

According to the press release from Zoran, the Vaddis 9 is designed to allow OEMs to easily migrate from earlier generations of Vaddis products for quick time to market.

The Vaddis 966 IC, the first processor to be launched within the new Vaddis 9 product family, is targeted at DVD player manufacturers addressing high volume price-sensitive markets. Additional members of the Vaddis 9 product family with enhanced features will be introduced later this year.

Samples and complete reference design kits of the Vaddis 9 product family are already available.
