Advanced Micro Devices Inc. has unveiled a new family of Xilleon panel processors designed to enhance visual quality in LCD DTVs. The new devices deliver advanced motion compensation and frame rate conversion technology for superior image processing, the company said, resulting in a rich, immersive entertainment experience.

"The visual experience now defines the user experience. We are committed to helping manufacturers deliver crystal clear '20/20 television' to a growing mainstream market of DTV consumers worldwide, enabling the ultimate visual experience," said Dave Di Orio, corporate VP and general manager, AMD's DTV division. "AMD is driving innovation and design efficiencies with outstanding technology in highly integrated, flexible AMD Xilleon processor solutions, which now span from TV motherboards to display panels."

The new Xilleon 410, 411, 420 and 421 panel processor family is designed to provide picture quality up to full HD resolution, with design flexibility to enable TV brand differentiation, and system integration to help reduce manufacturing costs.

The panel processors offer motion compensation and frame rate conversion based on the company's enhanced phase-plane correlation technology, supporting high-quality visual processing for 100Hz/120Hz LCD TVs up to full HD resolution. The key is the processor's ability to identify incoming 24Hz/60Hz film and video signals and convert them to 120Hz by determining motion between picture frames and intelligently creating additional content frames to represent that "in-between" motion with exceptional clarity. To provide greater flexibility for manufacturers to customize their TVs, these panel processors offer a high degree of programmability and can be integrated into the LCD panel subsystem or TV motherboard.
