Broadcom Corp. has announced sample availability of a multimedia processor that enables high-definition video camcorder and playback in cellphones and portable media players.

Claimed to be the first of its kind, the Broadcom VideoCore III multimedia processor also supports a digital camera of up to 12Mpixels and promises high-performance yet ultralow-power 3D graphics for a high-quality gaming experience. HD video, 3D games and high-resolution 12Mpixel pictures can be displayed at top quality on full-sized HDTVs and monitors using an on-chip industry standard HDMI interface.

Next-generation cellphones based on VideoCore III technology will offer significant improvement in mobile audio, video, imaging, navigation and gaming experiences, the company said, all with similar battery life and size of today's compact multimedia handsets.

Samples of the BCM2727 processor, with VideoCore III mobile multimedia technology, are now available to early access customers. Pricing is available upon request.
