AMD unveils media processor

By Derek Sooman on January 3, 2005, 6:01 PM
AMD will be producing a processor that provides a system-on-chip (SoC) solution for portable media players. The chip will support direct video content transfer to digital video recorders and scaling to DVD-quality displays. The Au1200 processor will apparently offer long battery life, does not require a digital signal processor or complex DSP coding, and is designed to support industry-standard media formats including MPEG2, MPEG4, WMV9, H.263 and DivX.

The company is also partnering with DVR manufacturer TiVo to support the TiVo-To-Go initiative.
