Silicon Image (NASDAQ:SIMG), a leading provider of HD connectivity solutions, today announced that its 4K Ultra HD adaptive scaling video processor with VRS® ClearView™ technology has been designed into OPPO Digital’s new BDP-103D Blu-ray Disc™ player. The SiI9616 video processor uses adaptive techniques designed to scale both video and graphics up to 4K Ultra HD resolution at 60 frames per second and sharpen Blu-ray-quality video by enhancing image details and nuances.
“As the 4K Ultra HD market gains momentum, we continue to look for technologies that will offer differentiating features to our customers,” said Jason Liao, chief technology officer and vice president of product development at OPPO Digital, Inc. “We selected Silicon Image’s video processor for the impressive 4K scaler and the comprehensive video enhancement technologies offered by VRS ClearView. By applying detail and edge enhancements, the OPPO BDP-103D increases image sharpness without injecting unnatural image artifacts, creating an exceptional consumer viewing experience.”
- Integrated HDMI® 2.0 and MHL® interfaces for home theater and mobile connectivity
- Adaptive scaling engine to convert images from native resolution to 4K Ultra HD resolution
- VRS ClearView technologies to enhance picture quality
“OPPO is well-recognized as a leading manufacturer of state-of-the-art, award winning Blu-ray players,” said Tim Vehling, senior vice president and general manager, connectivity products group at Silicon Image, Inc. “We are pleased that OPPO chose to incorporate our VRS ClearView and Ultra HD (4K) scaling technology into their latest Blu-ray player. We believe that the OPPO Blu-ray player will provide consumers with amazingly vibrant and pristine picture quality.”
Silicon Image’s proprietary VRS ClearView technology performs real-time, adaptive video processing to independently clean and scale video and graphics, greatly improving image quality. Products that incorporate VRS ClearView technology can transform content from low-resolution, heavily compressed sources such as streaming media and downloaded Internet videos into high-quality HD video. They can also convert SD and HD video content into extremely high-resolution 4Kx2K video, making today’s home theater equipment ready for the next generation of 4K Ultra HD displays.
