NXP has added new products to its PCTV line. The SAA7164BE and SAA7163AE are new PC TV processors designed to bring multistreaming, which allows for watch and record capabilities to work simultaneously, and PVR capabilities to desktop and notebook multimedia PCTV USB applications.

The company also launched PCV540 Hybrid DVB-T PCIe mini card reference design, said to be the first hybrid DVB-T PCIe mini card for notebooks with a multiformat hardware AV compression capability.

"The benefits these technologies afford the end user are obvious. Quite simply, their attributes allow for the next experience in PCTV viewing, where the end-user can watch their beloved football side live in the final and, at the same time, record the latest episode of their favorite TV show," said Bert van de Wakker, general manager for PC systems, NXP Semiconductors. "Driving the creation of consumer multimedia technology, where all kinds of content can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime with great picture and sound quality is a key aspect of the NXP ethosthese technologies represent the next phase in that development."

The PCV540's hardware-based AV compression affords PC manufacturers the opportunity to use cheaper CPUs across their multimedia notebook platforms without having to compromise on quality. All three products support video compression (MPEG1/2/4, WMV, DivX), audio compression (MPG1L2, MPG3, AAC, AC3) ATSC, DVB-T, worldwide video decoding (NTSC, PAL, SECAM) and Windows OS (MCE, XP, Vista) drivers, enabling seamless access to the global market and multiple PC applications.
