SlimPort Ultra-HD Solution enables Smartphones and Tablets to Share Theater-Quality Content with TVs, Monitors and Projectors
Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. today launched the industry’s first SlimPort® ultra high-definition (Ultra-HD) transmitter solutions, which enable smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices to connect with TVs, projectors and computer monitors to display movies, presentations and other content in up to 4K resolution.
The company is demonstrating its new ANX781X family of SlimPort Ultra-HD transmitters during Qualcomm Inc.’s Uplinq 2013 mobile developers conference, Sept. 3-5, at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel.
“We are delighted to work with Qualcomm to be the first to enable Ultra-HD capability for tablets and smartphones,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix. “Our new ANX781X family raises the capability of mobile device displays to the level of high-end personal computers or game stations. They’re perfect for watching sports events, which are now being captured and broadcast in Ultra-HD resolution.”
Ultra-HD displays, the latest advance in video performance, offer a theater-quality viewing experience, with vertical resolution of nearly 4,000 pixels (3840 pixels × 2160 lines) – twice the resolution of today’s popular 1080p HDTV displays. Demand for 4K products is increasing as chip makers add support for 4K output capability to their latest devices, such as Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 800 APQ8074 processors.
Analogix’s ANX781X transmitters, like others in its SlimPort line, are ultra-low power devices that work in conjunction with SlimPort receivers to convey portable devices’ audio and video signals to external displays. SlimPort-enabled mobile devices can connect to a wide variety of projectors, TVs and monitors, including those with VGA and HDMI interfaces, using SlimPort cables and adaptors. Device samples will be available in Q4 2013. Please contact your Analogix Sales Representative for availability and pricing.
