According to the press release, the Imageon video engine enables a mobile digital camcorder/player and supports features such as video telephony and video streaming. Both media processors support video playback and recording at up to 30fps in industry standard MPEG-4 and H.263/H.263+ formats. In addition, they support the H.264 and Real Video formats, offering compatibility for video streaming applications.

ATI's PowerPlay power management technology is integrated in the Imageon media processors. All Imageon components come with the necessary software drivers and middleware that are compatible across the product line. The company is currently sampling the Imageon 2380 and Imageon 2388 to customers.
