Sigma Designs has released the SMP8672 media processor for connected media players, IPTV and hybrid STBs. The chips claims to deliver 3D video and graphics processing together with customizable user interfaces and Over-the-Top (OTT) content streaming.

The media processor migrates to Sigma's latest Software Development Kit (SDK) which offers an intuitive new porting layer called Simple API for realizing fast time-to-market porting of Hybrid STB middleware. The new SDK improves developer productivity with a range of reference implementations for OTT applications like Netflix and VUDU along with proprietary application frameworks for developing Webkit-HTML5 applications or Adobe Air applications.

The SMP8672 also supports the XBMC middleware, which is available royalty free as a turnkey release. The XBMC middleware along with additional OTT plug-ins can enable a custom high-end media jukebox experience. In addition, there is full support for the OpenGL-ES 2.0 to enable new 3D user interface capabilities as well as future applications with WebGL.

The SMP8672 is expected to be available in mid-July.
