SILICON OPTIX AND ViXS JOINTLY SHOWCASE INTEGRATED WIRELESS HOME THEATER VIDEO PROJECTION PLATFORM AT INFOCOMM 2003Wireless home theater reference design features AnyPlace front-projection solution and XCode wireless video processing for "large screen" viewing anywhere
San Jose, Calif. (June 2, 2003) - Silicon Optix and ViXS Systems will demonstrate their joint reference design for wireless video projection -- the home theater projection platform of the future -- at Infocomm 2003 in booth #3647.
The Wireless Media Center solution based on ViXS' XCode real-time wireless video processing technology, combined with the AnyPlaceT flexible projector placement technology from Silicon Optix, represents the most flexible, easy-to-use and highly integrated wireless video projection solution available to OEMs of projectors and display devices today.
Silicon Optix's AnyPlaceT technology enables a projector to be placed almost anywhere in a room by adjusting for the projection angles to the screen while maintaining high image fidelity. AnyPlaceT technology supports off-axis projector placement of up to +/-40 degrees horizontally and +/-30 degrees vertically allowing for unprecedented viewing flexibility and versatility in home theater applications.
ViXS' Wireless Media Center reference design is a complete solution available to OEMs for immediate deployment of wireless video products in ultra-low cost point-to-point or multi-stream applications. At the core of the reference design is ViXS' XCode and ABFM network management software, which provide real time transrating and transcoding of multiple SD/HD video streams, and ViXS' Matrix, an 802.11a high performance component optimized for video applications. This combination provides the only complete system that can transmit high-quality, guaranteed quality-of-service (QoS) SD/HD video over standard Wi-Fi networks.
Currently available 802.11 wireless client/server solutions are data centric in nature and are not well suited to the real-time requirements of high-quality video transport. AnyPlaceT front projection technology from Silicon Optix combined with the ViXS Wireless Media Center allow for limitless projector placement now that both the need for on-axis projection and signal wires have been eliminated.
"Because it is optimized for video delivery, the ViXS platform is ideal for wireless home theater applications where high-quality video is desired to create a genuine cinema experience," commented Sally Daub, CEO at ViXS Systems. "By eliminating the requirement for on-axis projection, Silicon Optix's AnyPlace projection technology perfectly complements our video processing capabilities to give OEMs a truly flexible platform for wireless projector deployment."
"By partnering with ViXS, Silicon Optix is helping to ensure that consumers in every apartment, home and office can easily and cost-effectively place a projector into an existing environment to enjoy the 'large screen' viewing experience and unmatched image quality. This is a tremendous opportunity for projector manufacturers to reach an enormous, untapped market," said Dennis Crespo, VP of Marketing for Silicon Optix.
Silicon Optix will be showing the wireless home theater projection solution in booth #3647 at Infocomm 2003, the premier tradeshow for the projection industry. Visit http://infocomm03.expoexchange.com for more details on activity at the event.
